ABOUT FRESCOBOL CARIOCA

Frescobol Carioca is a brand inspired by the golden age of Brazilian beachlife; their tailored swimwear inspired by the colours of the Copacabana, Rio’s thrumming nightlife and its swirling sidewalk mosaics. Alongside clothing, their skilled marceneiros craft beautiful bats, surf and skateboards from hand-collected driftwood and hardwood offcuts.

MR & MRS SMITH LIMITED EDITION SWIMWEAR COLLECTION

The four-piece, resort-ready Mr & Mrs Smith collection includes two pairs of classic chevron-printed swim trunks, a linen beach towel, and a pair of wooden bats, all designed using Smith’s trademark red and navy blue to ensure a classic coastal look for beaches in Brazil and beyond.

A short film – and a set of stylish stills – shot on location in Rio by acclaimed photographer and art director Alex Bramall will accompany the launch of the collaboration. And the Frescobol Carioca team have hand-picked their hotel hotlist for summer 2018 –  a ‘Where to wear’ guide, if you will – which will launch simultaneously at mrandmrssmith.com/frescobolcarioca. The range will be on sale for a limited time at frescobolcarioca.com and at selected Frescobol Carioca stores from 1 May.

Frescobol Carioca co-founder Harry Brantly said: Mrs and Mrs Smith and Frescobol Carioca share many of the same loyal clients, and it has been truly exciting to work on this capsule collection to celebrate the brand’s 15th anniversary. These exclusive pieces have been designed with the sophisticated traveller in mind, and to celebrate our common values of quality, luxury, and attention to detail. It’s been super fun to see them come to life on Ipanema beach on a scorching hot day!’
