Rosa Cha designer Amir Slama is the Lewis Carroll of swimwear design; his collections usually tell a surreal tale involving a Brazilian beauty whose whimsical journey will eventually land her partially nude on the runway. But this latest line for Rosa Cha was more bohemian than it was scandalous, Slama introduced a collection composed of geometric cutout suits that sported what appeared to be household gadgets. The color palate ranged from shades of sweet melon to deeper hues of blue, while nudes were used to create the illusion of bare skin. The most flattering pieces were the one piece, floral-print bathing suits and the bias-cut cover-ups. While some of the designs may have raised a few brows, Slama definitely earned a few points for creativity, and a standing ovation for making every straight man’s fantasy come true.
