PAOLITA - Pink Power & SUN!

20130302-121436.jpg You're all getting a bit fed up of gray skies, cold and frosty mornings and generally hiding your fabulous selves under layers of wool, knit, jackets, scarves and hats. Of course I am not!

I just happen to be in one of the most beautiful places in Central America: PANAMA. So it's time to LET LOOSE Paolita’s exclusive showing of its gorgeous Summer 2013 collection at Baku on Sloane Street as a refreshing glimpse at what’s to come for the warmer months of the European year.

The summer theme started as soon as guests walked into the glamorous location, with delicious Ariela gelato being served in little cups to get everyone into the beach mood, and forgetting the freezing temperatures of London for a while.

Anna Paola, designer of Paolita, draws inspiration from her travels and her fascination of folk art and traditional costumes around the world. The collection conjures a world of vivid hues and lavish prints that leaves your mind wandering languidly to exotic sun kissed paradises.

Brightly coloured bikinis and swimsuits come with matching beach dresses and beach cover-ups richly embellished in pastel geometric prints and accented with lace trims so you can take your playful and sophisticated Paolita summer from beach to bar with ease!

Paola isn’t afraid to experiment with colour and texture, making each look a real visual treat. The collection is gorgeous, a great combination for an exciting day at the beach or pool in Central America.

Colourful and feminine jewellery by Pink Powder and Ipanema shoes especially shipped over from Brazil, perfectly complimented the sensational collection.

L'Oreal Headmasters created the easy going flowing hair styles while Debbie Corrie and her team of artists were responsible for the natural glowing summer make-up. The collection of swimwear and beachwear is available to buy at the London Paolita Boutique in Marylebone or in the many other Paolita’s shops around the world.
