Luiza Bonadiman 2010 Swimwear Collection

I am pleased to see that this Brazilian designer, as well as a few others, are bringing back the sleeves in swimwear. Swimwear with sleeves had some brief exposure int he early 1950s. Here Luiza Bonadiman uses strategically placed asymmetrical cutouts in her swimwear collection for 2010. Her use of peek-a-boo keyholes, an attention to the shoulders, dynamic angles, lace like fabric and some interesting fringe detail make this line work. There is also some draping and bondage type wrapping that makes it interesting.

You can see her designs on the catwalk from a video of her Rio Fashion Week show. The models are gorgeous!

This swimwear is stunning and really quite progressive. I am especially impressed by the bold Fringe one-piece. Great finds!
