There's no summer quite like a Rio summer. Sun-drenched days make way for hot, heady nights, rhythmic music pulses through the streets, Caipirinhas flow and bronzed surfers glide over epic waves. Its this unparalleled energy that Frescobol Carioca so perfectly captures through its men's swimwear and beach-ready clothing, which encompasses everything from swim shorts and relaxed linen shirts to beach towels and even beach bats.
The label has become renowned the world over for its bold, summery aesthetic and its latest High Summer '20 collection is no different. For the collection, Frescobol Carioca have sought inspiration from the work of contemporary designer and Rio local Claudia Moreira Salles, who creates unique sculptural lighting design, to produce a series of prints inspired by the distinct light of Rio de Janeiro.
The prints are bold yet refined, with strong lines and a warm and vibrant colour palette, perfect for those long, hot summer days.
To get you started, we've picked out a few of our favourite pieces from the collection.
The unique print of these swim shorts is inspired by the swirled mosaics of the Copacabana sidewalk, so you can take a bit of Rio with you wherever you go.
Offering a fresh take on the styles worn by Cariocas (Rio natives) in the 1950s, this knitted camp collar cardigan will take you effortlessly from beach to bar.
Crafted from a breathable quick-dry fabric, these swim shorts guarantee ultimate comfort on long days at the beach. The unique geometric print is inspired by lamp shades in Rio’s most stylish interiors.
Beloved by Cariocas for decades, espadrilles are a true summer classic. This style is crafted from supple suede and finished with a straw and rubber sole for supreme comfort. They're ideal for beach days as well as city adventures.
The Copic print plays with the shapes in Claudia Moreira Salles’ iconic light designs, rearranging them into a bold geometric print. The striking colours will turn heads for all the right reasons.
