Stand-out Prints – A Great Print is Hard to Find – the CIA Maritima Swimshow at the Raleigh

A good print is hard to find. Everyone TRIES but few succeed. Here’s a handful of designers who have succeeded: Diane Von Furstenberg, Lilly Pulitzer, Mara Hoffman, and Benny Rosset for Cia. Marititma.

This season, the suits at Cia. Maritima were teeny tiny – a requirement for any self-respecting Brazilian beach babe – no news there.

What grabbed my attention were the wild tropo-ethnic prints in fucshia-pink and cobalt-poison green on the bikinis AND the specially designed microsoft computers we got to view at the Microsoft party in the Raleigh’s penthouse.

For more on Cia. Maritima’s latest offerings, read my review of the Microsoft showcase and the Cia Maritima show on The Fashion List.
