Água de Coco

When Brazilian swimwear label Água de Coco hit the runway for São Paulo Fashion Week in June, one thing was clear. If Brazil were a man, he’d be a butt guy. Each piece of the collection looked like it had been crafted for the sole purpose of showing off the female form from behind. Bronzed bodies turned at the end of the catwalk to reveal a striking array of back adorning drapes, braids, folds and cutouts.

Don’t even think about throwing one on under any old thing. These swimsuits move with the jet-set crowd. And for Sydney girls, that means avoiding the “Bondi” look. Because tattered yellow hair extensions, cut-off denim underpants and orange spray tans have no business mixing with the luxe fabrics and chic designs of Água de Coco.
