Agua Bendita Releases Avant-Garde Bikinis for Summer 2011

The Aqua Bendita Swimwear collection for 2011 features a psychedelic splash of vibrant colors. Despite the limitations of the skimpy bikini, Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel and top Israeli model Bar Refaeli work the two-pieces to their fullest.

Agua Bendita means "holy water," and the glamorous line is an avant-garde mashup of technology (specifically, a laser) and craftsmanship through embroidery, sequins and beading. The handmade bikinis layer lace, tulle and beads with a gorgeous result.

Some pieces in the collection take up to 20 working days to complete. There is a complete range of accessories for the line, including shirts, dresses, harem pants, pareos, bags, shoes and jewelry.
