From eye-popping bikini designs to edgy avant-garde pieces, get those shopping lists ready as we take you through the hottest women’s fashion boutiques in Rio.
This womenswear label displays a stunning collection of sophisticated silhouettes and fabrics – unveiling a unique look. Designer Andrea Marques founded this eponymous label from the desire to create clothes that translate her passion for prints, colours and delicate finishes in contemporary forms. Expect eye-catching prints and patterns that make great statement pieces.
Not for plain Janes
Elegances oozes at Eva, a day-to-night wear brand that features ultra-sleek pieces in daring cuts and breath-taking prints and patterns. Uncover metallic dresses, furry sweaters, suede trench coats, bell-bottom jeans, and leopard print leotards, just to name a few. Certainly not for Plain Janes.
Renowned beachwear label
Rio is synonymous with its bikini-clad babes, so it’s no surprise you’ll find many swimwear boutiques around the city. One of which is the renowned Lenny Niemeyer who opened her first store in Ipanema, 25 years ago. The carioca lifestyle is a striking feature in her bikinis, swimsuits and beachwear. Niemeyer has also represented Brazilian beachwear in Fashion Weeks held in Rio and worked with the likes of Giselle Bundchen, Naomi Campbell and Izabel Goulart.
Mix of sophisticated and Avant-Garde pieces
Tufi Duek exudes an unassuming mix of sophisticated and avant-garde elements in their designs. The creative use of raw materials transcends all concepts and boundaries, paving way for something new. We’re obsessed about the touch of class paired with spunk – the use of vibrant colours, strategic cuts and ruffles – is what makes Tufi Duek a force to be reckoned with.
If you’re pressed for time we suggest heading straight to Via Flores. Known for its prime location, impeccable service and exclusivity, the multi-label boutique impresses with a curated collection of the best brands in the world. Popular brands along the likes of Diane von Furstenberg, Equipment and McQ by Alexander McQueen stand aside local labels like Gloria Coelho, Coven, Glorinha Paranaguá and Egrey. One thing’s for sure – you’ll only find brands that are making waves in the fashion scene.
