Sao Paulo Fashion Week roundup: most inventive, edgy looks [PHOTOS]

See the most alluring pieces that paraded the runways of the recently-concluded Sao Paulo Fashion Week in Brazil.

The Sao Paulo Fashion Week proved to be a carousal of jovial hues and charming prints with the last few collections that went down the tropic runway. Amapo’s summer 2012 collection showcased mildly-colored dresses with fanciful pleating details and soapy pastel hues. One dress has a Queen Elizabeth-esque feel with a majestic royal collar and meticulous pleating, while another one has a sheer top with brassiere detail and pleated skirt. Brazlian designer Adriana Degreas sent models in billowing silk summer dresses and cardigans with painting-inspired prints and colors. Degreas’ swimsuits follow the season’s trend of high wasted bottoms and bandeau halter tops.

Fraga presented girls wearing outfits that epitomize the essence o f a luxurious vacation down the French Riviera. One outstanding look is a navy floor length button down sailor dress that will look stunning while lounging on a cruise ship or enjoying cocktails at the club. The music instrument head pieces were a little off, but the wackiness didn’t affect the sophistication of the looks. Lino Villaventura’s collection took viewers to a haven of Greek goddesses in draped, flowing gowns, sequined floral headbands and sheer fabrics. One breezy summer dress in soft pink and vanilla white gives the impression of a perfect figure – amazing for ladies who like to be sexy and stay covered this summer.

Chich brand Fause Haten’s ready-to-wear line called “FH” sent models down the runway in glittery, sheer dresses with a surprise accessory that shocked viewers: blindfolds. As if a scene coming from a fashion reality show, the models caught the attention of photographers and critics with their unique manner of presenting the intricate and fun pieces of the line.

All in all, Sao Paulo’s sizzling fashion week isn’t only a feast for swim and lounge wear. The collections showcased some of Brazil’s prominent and fresh designers with pieces that can make it to the runways of Paris or New York in any season. With the exhibition of lively colors, stunning designs and inventive trends, this year’s installment was an aesthetic fashion extravaganza.
