Carnaval Makes a Splash

Carnival season kicks off in Brazil today, the tireless festivities running until March 5th. To celebrate, iconic swimwear label Blueman recruited 13 Brazilian fashion personalities to design costumes, using three of the brand’s swimsuits as a base. The exclusive collection will be exhibited in Blueman stores throughout Brazil, and afterwards, suits will be auctioned off to support fashion institutions. Among the A-list group of participants are Ronaldo Fraga, Alexandre Herchcovitch, Adriana Barra, Katia Barros from Farm, Fernando Cozendey, André Lima and Ricardo Bräutigam from Ausländer.— Reported by Marina Costa Manso
