Poko Pano - Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim

Posted: Updated:

Poko Pano means, "little cloth" in Portuguese and it's the perfect name for the bikinis in this story. Deco met up with the Brazilian designer at the Shore Club who's opening Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim.

Brazil hosted the World Cup, now, a Sao Paulo native is set to score big in SoFlo.

Paola Robba: "I love to do my show here in Miami."

Poko Pano hits the catwalk for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim. Known for her bold prints and sexy cuts, designer Paola Robba is turning up the heat for summer.

Paola Robba: "We have a different kind of cut this year. I think it's contemporary to have a scarf to wear as a top."

This colorful two piece will throw you for a loop.

Paola Robba: "It's a Brazilian fruit, tropical fruit and we work with crochet in the bottom."

Into leather? Strap this bikini on. But don't get it wet.

Paola Robba: "It's handmade worked with leather. It's a Brazilian bottom."

Superstition is a big theme this year. These prints feature saints promising love, health and fortune.

Paola Robba: "Your dream can be true like. to find a husband, to win money."

Um, is there a saint for a flat stomach?

Paola Robba: "You can have a hot pants a big and when you go to take sun, you have a smaller bikini."

With her sexy cover-ups and whimsical style, Paola is proving her designs are timeless.

Paola Robba: "This piece I created 18 years ago and it's very cool for now."

And her influences are all over the map and the floor this corset is made from a rug.

Paola Robba: "When I was creating, I took the rug, I decide to create a print."

The World Cup frenzy is over, but thanks to Poko Pano, the action on South Beach is just heating up.

Poko Pano kicks off the Mercedes Fashion Week Swim at 5 p.m. Friday at the Raleigh Hotel.

    The Return of the Crop Top

    When I first heard that the Crop Top was back in style, I walked straight into my bedroom, stood in front of the mirror, lifted my shirt, turned to the side and stuck my gut out as far as it would go.

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.

    When I walked out of the Hong Kong airport, the heat of the city slapped me so hard across the face, it was like a woman catching her cheating husband with a long-suspected mistress.

    Good things come in small packages, especially when it comes to innovative Spanish cuisine in Miami. Deco got a table at NIU (new) and got a big taste of Barcelona.
