Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim gets a Brazilian!
Actually, Brazil's Paola Robba has been showing at Swim Week since 2002, and this year's collection proved no less sexy than her past debuts.
The Raleigh Hotel runway transformed into Rio Friday night as models showcased Robba's designs inspired by Brazilian myth: Saint George, the Patron Saint of Portugal; Bumba Meu Boi, a mythical bull; as well as the country's penguins and jaguars.
More touches of Rio appeared in gold-plated hardware jewelry, handmade wooden beads, and a color palette of turquoise, lilac, burnt orange, and cranberry.
