It’s very rare that you find a swimwear brand that combines hand-crafted designs and ultra luxe fabrics with super sexy silhouettes to create some of the hottest, most buzzed about swimsuits in the industry. This is a perfect representation of Agua Bendita, the Colombian swimwear brand that caters to a fashionable, confident woman who isn’t afraid to stand out when it comes to her swimwear choices. We’ve got your exclusive sneak peek at the Agua Bendita Swimwear 2016 collection that was presented on Sunday, July 19th 2015 at the W Hotel in Miami Beach…and boy, did Agua Bendita deliver! The stellar collection features the gorgeous Shannon De Lima (and might we add one of our personal customers…) as the campaign model, and as an added surprise, the images were actually shot by her husband and singer extraordinaire, Marc Anthony. MAJOR props to Marc for dishing out some gorgeous images for 2016! For 2016, Agua Bendita stuck with their celebrated design aesthetic, including the ever-so-popular Brazilian bikini bottoms, sultry triangle tops, and pareos and kaftans that flow effortlessly with the wind (#GoneWithTheWindFabulous). We were also surprised to see new animal prints, prismatic neons, and sassy cover ups that blew us out of the water. We can’t wait to share with you an exclusive insider’s look into the 2016 collection, and hopefully, you’ll bet getting your hands on some of these pieces and more 2016 swimwear designs when they hit our store soon!
Here are a few of our favorite trends:
(1) Prints, Prints, and Did We Say Prints?:
Agua Bendita is no stranger to picture-perfect prints, so it’s no surprise that the 2016 collection is chock-full of stunning prints, including animal prints, vibrant ethnic prints, feather inspired designs, tropical florals, and new prints that mimic geometric designs accented by the Agua Bendita logo and neon colors. We are simply DYING over these.
(2) Nuts Over Neons:
Neons are huge for the 2016 swim season, and Agua Bendita excels when it comes to delivering designs that feature bold, in-your-face colors that shine bright under the summer sun. From hot pinks and blues to highlighter pinks and yellows, you will discover all prismatic shades of the neon-rainbow in the 2016 collection.
(3) Brazilian Beauties:
Of course, you can’t have an Agua Bendita collection without Brazilian bikini bottoms. This style staple is primarily what has made the brand stand out from your conventional swimsuit brand, and it’s what keeps bikini lovers – especially those looking to show a little more on the backside – coming back for more year after year. Agua Bendita has truly perfected the Brazilian bikini bottom, and you’ll find it across every kind of swim silhouette: from string bottoms and hipster styles to one-pieces and monokinis. Most of these bottoms will also feature a subtle ruched back detailing, which helps to flatter the figure and accentuate your natural curves. Who doesn’t love a better-looking bum?
(4) Cover Ups Galore:
Another popular addition to the Agua Bendita 2016 collection is cover-ups; from kaftans and tunics to jean shorts and more, resort wear has made a huge splash onto the Agua Bendita clothing repertoire. People can’t get enough of their multi-color cover-ups that feature the same quality construction and hand-made detailing of their swimsuits. You’ll be sure to stand out in the beach crowd in any of these gorgeous designs.
Agua Bendita truly delivered a gorgeous collection for 2016, and we can’t wait to feature these designs on our site soon. What is your favorite piece from Agua Bendita 2016?
