Agua Bendita Swimwear is one of the hottest swimsuit brands on the block. We look forward to their collections year in and year out, and the 2015 collection will surely not disappoint.
For many of us non-Spanish speakers, Agua Bendita may be hard to pronounce, let alone know what the heck it means. So let’s get this out of the way first:
Agua Bendita – pronounced “Ah-gwah Ben-dee-tah” actually means “Holy Water” in Spanish.
Now that that’s settled, lets discuss more of what the brand is about and the back story behind the two very talented designers Catalina Álvarez and Mariana Hinestroza.
Established in Colombia in early 2003, Agua Bendita Swimwear is one of the fastest growing swimwear brands in the world. The creators of the company, Catalina Álvarez and Mariana Hinestroza, have been friends since the conception of the brand. Within the span of 7 years, Agua Bendita has gained notoriety amongst magazines and celebrities alike. The exclusivity of the designs and the quality of each piece has allowed the company to maintain consistent exposure in important magazines, runways, and retailers around the globe. Agua Bendita is a brand that will be changing the game and breaking barriers for many years to come.
Catalina Álvarez and Mariana Hinestroza
Agua Bendita began when both Catalina and Mariana were still in school pursuing a major in fashion design at a renowned university in Colombia. It began as an inspired friendship and with the collective culmination of ideas and tastes rather than an initial business concept. But once the friendship thrived, so did the brand, and soon Agua Bendita was born.
During the last few years, Agua Bendita has been noted for giving an innovative and modern touch to its genuine Colombian garb. This innovations makes the pieces created more modern, progressive and eye-catching. The wild success of the company has been attributed to the combination of laser cutting detail design with high quality, imported products and materials, which have been the spear point of product development throughout the years.
Also an added bonus to the original designs are the handcrafts made by Colombian artisans, who with their experience, accompanied by the brand’s designers, have been able to create original hand-made pieces that give a more delicately intricate touch.
Agua Bendita is a fresh, enthusiastic brand that has exclusive designs based on fun, inspired, and progressive concepts. The brand is a mix of hand-crafted embellishments, technology, and vibrant colors which always make the clothing seem alive and new. The brand has the look of a woman wanting to be admired, wanting to be noticed. This allows many women to identify themselves with Agua Bendita, and seek it to add to their fashion collections.
But besides the hand-crafted details and eye-catching patterns, Agua Bendita Swimwear also specializes in perfect brazilian bikinis. This is why their swimsuits are always the perfect mix of style and sex appeal. The brazilian cut bikinis are revealing enough to add the element of allure, while still maintaining an air of mystery.
Most recently, Agua Bendita has launched their latest collections with the original idea of the “Bendita´s Girl”, a concept with which all women are “benditas” (blessed), beautiful, eye-catching, and famous. This concept wants to be expanded around the world. Most recently, the Bendita Girl for 2014 was none other than Kendall Jenner, of the Kardashian clan. Ms. Jenner effortlessly flaunts her style and long legs representing Agua Bendita in all of its beauty.
In 2014 Agua Bendita also nabbed model Candice Swanepoel for their Spring campaign. This South American blonde bombshell was an excellent choice to rock the brand right. The fascination of an up-and-coming model such an Swanepoel plus the allure of such a popular and vibrant brand, creates the perfection combination to garner the attention of women around the world.
This year, the 2015 collection features one of the hottest models in the game — Irina Shayk. You know her from the new movie Hercules, plus being a world-renowned model and dating soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo. With her caramel complexion and Colombian flair, we think Shayk is the perfect model to debut this collection.
We couldn’t be more excited to introduce the Agua Bendita 2015 collection. The pieces themselves should be arriving within the next few weeks, but lucky for you we have a pre-order bonanza going on right now.
Feast your eyes on the future of swimwear and make sure you don’t miss out on these new styles!
