Moda Lisboa – 7th October – Cia Maritimi

The collection begins with white and orange dip dyed bikinis sporting shimmering gold chain embellishment and studs, adding in black with gold and gunmetal studs in leopard print.
 The collection mixes and matches bikinis early, looking natural and interesting. Geometric prints in pink and white are introduced in one and two pieces, asymmetric sporty looking bikini tops and tiny side tie bottoms – the ties finished with chunky gold cubes. 
Leopard is a theme throughout and is mixed with florals both in mix and match bikinis and also in the beachwear which is flowing, sheer and loose fitting, tightened by drawstrings creating shape – a gorgeous denim pair of beach shorts are shown, fringed hems and covered in studded leopard print at the front. White and florals appear still with a smattering of gold chains, studs and embellishment.

 The leopard prints become enlarged, covering a gorgeous moulded cup one piece and also features in turquoise, edged and mixed with yellow and pink, still trimmed with gold. These colours appear again in an enlarged snake print, looking almost peacock like as the blues, greens and pinks are mixed.

Gorgeous flowing collection featuring so many exciting prints and embellishments but maintaining flattering shapes and avoiding the ridiculous tan line shapes that have been seen so much in the past few summers.
