We may still be in the depths of winter, but we're already counting down the days until summer, optimistically plotting our next sun-drenched adventure and eagerly preparing our warm weather wardrobes. It's safe to say our excitement has just reached new heights, thanks to Frescobol Carioca, whose latest SS21 collection – entitled 'Azulejo' – is an embodiment of summer sophistication, replete with bold printed swim shorts, elegant cotton-silk shirts and laidback yet luxurious tees and sweats.

Inspired by the works of the famed Brazilian artist Athos Bulcão, the collection is imbued with graphic geometry and a bold colour palette, with soft tones of off-white and fog sitting alongside vivid blue and Aegean green. Characterful yet refined, these are garments that are designed to take their wearer effortlessly from long hot days by the pool to smart soirées after dark. Scroll on for a closer look at five of our favourite styles from the Frescobol Carioca SS21 collection.

Jacquard Linear Tile Print Roberto Shirt

Crafted from a cotton-linen blend, this camp collar shirt is breezy and breathable, making it a surefire summer staple. The Athos Bulcão-inspired print will bring just the right amount of personality to any outfit.

Angra Tile Print Tailored Swim Shorts

These swim shorts draw on the graphic formations of Athos Bulcão, reinterpreting Frescobol Carioca's signature Angra print for a new take on a beloved classic. With their elegant tailored cut, they're guaranteed to elevate your poolside style.

Silk-Cotton Joaquim Knit

The humble tee has been given a luxurious upgrade in the form of Frescobol Carioca's cotton and silk knit tee. Wear it with classic chinos and leather sneakers for a fresh take on the smart casual dress code.

Navy Blue Vinicius Knit Shirt

With its Cuban collar and classic fit, this knit shirt is an example of retro style done right. It's cut from a lightweight wool for ultimate comfort and breathability.

Linear Tile Print Classic Swim Shorts

The wave-like design of these beautifully tailored swim shorts was inspired by Athos Bulcão's most recognisable tile panels. We love the bold colour combination, reminiscent of a deep Rio sunset.
