It’s probably fair to say that Brazil enjoys a little exposure (see: string bikinis, Olympic bids).
And though those two features alone are more than enough to satisfy most of the world’s population, there are some natives who want to flash the cultural underbelly.
The São Paulo sisters behind Uvaia clothing are here to reveal their city’s vibrant indie scene. The super-hot label references the ’80s with edgy silhouettes and color patterns (geometrics in teal, purple, black, and fuchsia) slightly reminiscent of Marc Jacobs and Sonia Rykiel (the designer used to style for both in NYC).
Drawstring cowl-neck blouses, loose-fitting shirtdresses, racer-back tanks, and sexy jumpsuits make up the small collection — which is named for a sweet and spicy fruit indigenous to Brazil.
Not to give it all away or anything.
