The Brazilian Beauty in Capri

The Azure sea, serene gorges and the Italian romanticism - three main elements that made up the isle of Capri. Enchanting and captivating, the Daslu team decided to teem the island's beauty with it's Summer 2007 collection. For this summer, the Brazilian label is bringing back the glory of floral prints and gold as the main element of their creations.

Flowy dresses, tunics, blouses and caftans are all adorned with plethora of floral and paisley prints, creating the classic Mediterranean aura. Either you are basking under the summer sun by the beach, cruising along the blue sea on the luxury boat quaffing champagne, or maybe hanging out with friends while downing glasses of Cosmopolitan or Martini at the chic yet exclusive clubs in town, Daslu has the style that really fits in you.

If you choose to enjoy the beauty of the vast blue sea water on the luxury liner or just a stroll at the nearby quaint town, this semi-transparent, front twisted printed top in azure with plunging v-neckline, white short pants and a hat is what you need for that laidback look. Optimize your look with the optional bikini top or bandeau in contrast colors. To accessorize, wear long gold-gilded or bronze necklaces adorned with turquoise or corals around your neck with a pair of espadrilles in natural rafia on your feet. Complete your look with the must tote interciatto leather Bottega Veneta bag in natural brown.

For a sinful evening look, paint the town red in this stunning white dress. It has embroidered details on the neckline and back, with heightened hem and clinched waistline. Since the neckline is heavily embroidered with golden thread, you don't have to over-accessorize yourself with long golden chain necklaces because the embroidered neckline itself gives an illusion of a jewellery, which can be counted as the "trompe l'oeil" technique in fashion styling. A matching killer stilletoes in liquid gold is just perfect to complete your evening look. With minimal makeup and a small handbag or satin clutch bag, you are ready to party till dawn.

So if you plan for change of air, try to get your hands on these beautiful pieces from one of Brazil's famous export and also the well-known wonderland to the rich South Americans and Brazilians alike, Daslu.

The Daslu Summer 2007 Ready-to-Wear collection is available in stores at selected multi-brand stores and Daslu Boutique in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
