Caffé Swimwear, Colombian-based luxury women’s swimwear and apparel brand, has quickly developed an international following since its introduction to the market in 2004. Designer Paula Saavedra is best known for elevating beachwear to high-fashion status with chic, sexy and undeniably stylish silhouettes for women who love to glam-up their warm-weather wardrobe.
Returning for its fifth presentation at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami, Caffé Swimwear showcased a Spring/Summer 2014 collection inspired by Colombia’s distinct natural regions including its beaches, jungles, mountains and abundant flora and fauna and highlighting its tropical colors, animal prints and floral patterns.
While swimwear remains the foundation for the company’s history of success, Caffé expanded into offering a “lifestyle” collection of swimsuits, beachwear and beach accessories designed to meet the fit, quality and style demands of its fashion-forward clientele. The effortlessly sexy concept carries throughout the line of bikinis, trikinis and one-pieces as well as hand-embroidered long and short kaftans with crystal appliques, crepe jumpsuits, skirts and dresses that readily translate from day to night.
