With traditional samba music as the soundtrack, the swimsuit collection also emphasized Rio's famous beachside culture.

Fashion Eeitor Carla Raimondi, one of the attendees at the swimwear event, said, "I liked the prints, the colors and the shapes of the bikinis very much. I think it is a collection that looks like summer and portrays Brazil, Rio and even Sao Paulo."

From summer dresses to bikinis, and with colors ranging from yellow to coral, nearly every type of summer-wear was on display, proving variety really is the spice of life.
