When we saw this bikini in person for the first time we were snowed out of New York and were spending the layover in Miami, where the line is based (natch). Never have we seen this sort of effortless, sun-drenched, South American style silhouette executed with such understated elegance. It was almost as if it was designed for a woman who spends half her time in sunny southern climes (the scalloped edges, the Brazilian-style back, the softness of it all) and the other half conquering the cities of the great north (the ultimate wearability, and the lace- oh the lace!). That's our kind of lady. 90% nylon, 10% spandex. Hand wash in cool water with an extra-gentle lingerie wash; gently squeeze out excess water and lay flat to dry.
