Vendor Description Ipanema
The Ipanema tagline: "The original Brazilian bikini". It doesn't get better than that—certainly Ipanema Swimwear founder Patricia Martins agrees. The brand was founded in 1978, inspired by the gleaming white sands of Ipanema in Rio de Janeiro. Martins began making itsy bitsy teeny weeny custom made bikinis for herself and her friends; demand soon spread, and before she knew it, her swimwear was gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated. Booty-baring and body-conscious, Ipanema's bikinis, swimsuits and more are meant to be worn with pride, sass and panache.
