MIAMI, Jul 21, 2013/ — Sinesia Karol launched her 2014 Resort Collection over the pool during Funkshion SWIM at the SLS Hotel South Beach on Saturday, July 20, 2013.
Three sources of inspiration for the 2014 Resort Collection include: the natural beauty, biodiversity and birds of Brazil. Bright colors, original prints and airy textiles came down the runway in the form of bikinis, one piece swimsuits, kaftans, jumpsuits and beach wraps.
The Boston-based designer Sinesia Karol made her debut on the fashion scene in 2012 with the launch of her first swim and beachwear collection inspired by rare orchids. Always flocking to bright colors and light, silk fabrics; Sinesia teamed up Vitória artist, Ana Paula Castro, for her second collection. Karol and Castro proved that their collaboration between art and design surpass their dreams, when the collection came to life on the runway.
The four emblematic Brazilian birds from which Karol drew inspiration are the Rufous-Bellied Thrush, the Parakeet, the Humming Bird and the Canary, considered the most inspiring of Brazilian birds and consequently, the most acclaimed and familiar in the popular and cultural conscience.
“Strong and vibrant colors bring my collections to life, which translate the soul of our people so well. The eyes of the world are on our country; I wanted to show our happiness and vibrancy through elements which identify Brazil. Out of the 1,800 species of birds that live in the country, more than 230 are only found in Vitória, Brazil, giving us one of the largest, most beautiful and most valuable bird populations in the world!” affirms the designer.
A palette of colors and shades grew from the tones of the birds’ plumage. Turquoise, coral, canary yellow, green and orange breathe life into the collection. The 2014 Resort Collection consists of 75 designs and 8 prints incorporating the lightest silks for warm climate attire and the softest fabrics in beachwear. Each piece of the collection is named after friends and important women in the designer’s life.
In addition to using the finest fabrics, Sinesia Karol is known for her precision in the fit and cut of the swimwear. A testament to the quality of the collection was confirmed with the signing of the luxurious department, Bergdorf Goodman, in 2012.
