NEW YORK, Aug 16, 2011/ — The teeming beaches of Rio, underneath the high noon sun, as photographed by Mario Testino inspired the Resort 11-12 C&M camilla and marc swimwear collection.
The collection translates the idea of Brazil’s beach culture, in love with the body beautiful and beach side glamour, into structured swimsuits with prominent use of graphic cutouts. Paneled one-pieces make the body look sleek and sexy and minimal high-waisted bikini styles feel modern and fresh in monochromatic black and white.
Prints and colors were inspired by the modernist landscape architecture of Roberto Burle Marx with the resulting palette a mix of avocado green, salmon, gravel grey, lemon yellow and navy blue. Flora and fauna come through in the print selection including a delicate botanical floral and a modernist bird print.
