"Oiôba is a swimsuit and active wear brand born in Rio de Janeiro, but based in Porto. The brand consists of three male architects who do everything for their brand. After a one year trip to Portugal, they found the most beautiful beaches, the most incredible atmosphere and a positive attitude that they couldn’t find anywhere else in the world — this is what caught their eye and soul. Positive energy, natural beauty, fresh flavours and colours, which they try to take into their garments.
For the SS16 ‘Photosynthesis’ collection they have produced something that could help them stand out and spread love and positive energy. They asked four awesome female artists from around the globe to design a limited series of four swimsuits named ‘Undercover’."
