Sauipe Swimwear (pronounced sa-wee-pay) is inspired by Costa do Sauipe, one of the most beautiful and evocative tourist destinations in Brazil. Costa do Sauipe is located on the north coast of Bahia, a state rich in history, culture and hospitable people. The birth place of renowned artists such as Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Bahia has shared with the world its legendary music, foods, colors and the best beaches one could envision.
After one memorable trip to Costa do Sauipe in 2006, we were inspired to begin our journey and to develop a line of swimwear that reflects the rich natural beauty of Bahia’s beaches and people. Our old time love for swimwear had found a muse, and our hearts were set on the name SAUIPE as a tribute to this idyllic stretch of white sandy beaches and clear turquoise water, framed by coconut trees along the coast.
Sauipe Swimwear evokes the natural beauty of Bahia in its collections. Using high quality materials and finishing, we reflect the sensuality and textures of Sauipe in original designs and exclusive prints. Sauipe Swimwear captivates its audience with its creativity and simplicity. A no-excess, less-is more- approach results in sophisticated and very elegant designs. Our cut is a ‘conservative Brazilian’, providing a bit more coverage, while still maintaining its sensual appeal. Suits can be ordered as separates.
