Sexy swim shapes for spring-summer '11 (39171)

Suddenly, it’s summer! And new beachwear from Brazilian fashion designer Sonjja Baram is slimming, stylish and sexy.

You’ve all heard the song, “The Girl from Ipanema.” Inspired by this song, Baram’s new swim line is exotic and beautiful. Her suits are flirty whether you’re walking, jogging, riding a bike or simply taking in the sun on the beach or boardwalk. Her bikinis will make you feel like a Brazilian goddess. The swim look is gorgeous and beautiful!

For spring-summer, Baram’s collection shapes up with sen- sational looks that are influenced by the romantic gardens of French impressionist painter Pierre-August Renoir. With Memorial Day here, now is the time to pick your favorite beachwear style at www.sonjj-

Her 30-piece collection includes vibrant shades of orange, green, lilac and rich brown. Her prints are pretty and very artistic. The line was especially designed to fit all shapes and sizes; there are tops, bottoms, one-piece swimsuits, skirts and cover-ups.

Short and long dresses received applause at her show last Tuesday evening, held at the Glasshouses in the Chelsea Art Tower. The nice thing about her line is that you can mix and match her pieces and sizes. For easy styling, sizing and a unique, adjustable design to fit your body comfortably, every item is sold sepa- rately. Prices range from $35 to $280, including customized pieces.

Although it is designed in New York, Baram’s collection is manufactured in Brazil. The swimwear is designed with a variety of handcrafted accents like colorful stones and delicate metallic bands (not heat conductive). Every accent piece can be customized to your individual style with different gems such as crystals and diamonds. This sophisticated line represents exceptional value and high quality without costing a fortune. All styles are made in spandex, which resists sag- ging. The fabrics are also easy- to-dry, so swimwear looks and fits like new, longer.

Baram’s designs provide comfort and sensuality. It’s im- portant to wear the right beach look for your style, so get ready to be beautiful, look attractive and have fun while enjoying the summer season!
