In his first outing for Rosa Cha, Brazilian design sensation Alexandre Herchcovitch explored the progression of mid-century swimwear and re-envisioned it for the modern woman. The runway show started off with a classic 1950s ingénue look: a polka-dotted high-waisted brief paired with a tie-back push-up bra and topped off with a bright headband. Then Herchcovitch updated glamour girl get-ups with this season’s popular chambray, arranged in scuba-inspired panels. Playful pin-up suits gradually gave way to a more angular 1960s Mod sensibility, with polished silhouettes enhanced by fractals of black and white stripes . At the end, these retro looks blossomed into a futuristic technicolor explosion of peek-a-boo macramé, billowing robes and chunky accessories, representing a woman who has finally grown up and is not afraid to stand out.
