South American swimwear brands are growing in popularity every year in the UK, and a new British label has launched for the spring/summer 2013 season that is heavily influenced by Brazilian styles.
Lara Ventura is a collection of sexy and exotic string bikinis in graphic prints and patterns including animal prints and metallics. Pieces are skimpy in the best tradition of South American swimwear, but very striking, and fans of the brand include Rita Ora.
The brand is sold via the online boutique laraventura.co.uk, which also stocks brands such as Amulette, Maaji and Suite B.
Prices range from £79 to £98 for a bikini set, and the brand is well worth a look.
