The world’s most perfect bikinis by Poko Pano

March 9, 2010

This weekend’s abrupt return to warmer weather has gotten me thinking… about sun-kissed beaches, steel drum music, and fruity drinks with lots and lots of rum!

If you’re headed to a tropical locale this spring for some much-need R&R, I bet you’re already thinking about what to pack. The answer? Perfect bikinis by Poko Pano!

This Brazilian swimwear line was launched in 1988 in São Paulo by designer Paola Robba, and since then has become one of the most recognized Brazilian swimwear brands in the world. Bikini’s by Poko Pano are fully lined and made of premium Brazilian lycra, so they wash and wear incredibly well. Poko Pano also offers an important choice when it comes to bikini bottoms — Brazilian cut (minimal coverage) and American cut (more moderate coverage).

One of my favorite from this season’s collection is the Sahara. I have a long love affair with animal prints and the Sahara’s leopard pattern does not disappoint. The classic black halter top ties in back with adjustable straps which match the sassy double side-tie leopard bottoms. $120

For a more whimsical look, I love the Bali. Adorable, with an eclectic mix of print and stripes, the bandeau top has removable pads, a black buckle at center and back tie. The tanga single tie-side bottom is completely adjustable along the white waistband. $126

Or, for your next trip, try the classic Isabelle. The adjustable triangle top has black rope detailing on each side, and ties behind the neck to achieve the perfect fit. The fold over hipster has shirring at the sides and is fully lined (the white is even triple lined!). $164

Want even more choices? The 2010 Collection is available online at Poko Pano and at fine retailers across the US. From exotic animal prints, to feathers, blooming flowers, plants, and native Indian motifs, plus details like snakeskin, beads, hardware, knotting, and tulle overlays, you’re sure to find just the right suit for your spring getaway!
