This is it, the latest high-end-sexy styles you'll have to have. I'm Christine Ong here for CASHAK TV. Now we bring you to the Third US collection of Paola Robba for Poko Pano and their 2010 Collection, debuting at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami the company started in 1988 and came to the US in 2005, it's based out of Sao Paulo in Brazil, French castles and palaces influenced this collection, the designer says they have a timeless and romantic quality that is very inspirational, but even though the collection is inspired by French elements, the designer does not see the collection as a mix of French and Brazilians styles, rather the designs are timeless, and they use quote: "French décor and architecture to inspire and interpret it for Brazilian swimwear", Lycra, velvet are used in fabric for the swimwear, celebrity fans include Beyonce Knowles, Angie Harmon and Elle MacPherson, the price point runs from $120 to $300, it will be available in December 2009 at high-end swim boutiques, see our shop directory for more links, Trends in this collection pure white coloring, animal prints, French accents.

Chic bandeau top with gathered stitching in the middle, half the design is white, half black, covered in multiple long chain necklaces, we see lots of gold chains accessorizing 2010 swim looks, white bikini brief bottoms with black edging, CASHAK.TV asked the designer what makes a swimsuit sexy and they said: "A great fit, wonderful design, and the confidence of the woman wearing it."

Next up solid white bandeau bikini with a large gold ring in the center, accessorized with more long ring necklaces in different sizes, sexy tonga bottoms with black detailing on one side and a long tie on the other.

Solid white is a popular color in the classic French architecture and we see lots of it used in this collection, halter top, unique cut at the straps, connections to a twisted black design capped with gold hardware, banded bottoms with rushing accents, easily see these designs on an exclusive island in the Mediterranean.

Sophisticated one-piece, neck strap with another twisted black design that flows down to the bust, lots of strand necklaces that have a few gold rings attached, we asked the designer how to select the perfect swimsuit, and they said to ignore the size and focus on how it fits, and the way it makes you feel.

The designer loves bandeau tops, they are very sexy, adds some color to this twisted white bandeau with a flower line design in red that is reminiscent of antique floral prints, pattern found in castles in France, velvet violet bottoms, banded, tassel detail hangs from the side, This CASHAK.TV's pick for the hottest bikini of the collection for it's mix of voluptuous cuts mated with high-fashion accents.

The designer says the ideal woman who wears Poko Pano is "confident, stylish [and] sophisticated". The designer changes things up with a stylish twist, bandeau covered in a color blocked design, brown, red and white colors, ring hardware in the center links the sides together, tonga bottoms with a striped design in matching colors.

The designer says American style influences each collection, this season the designer was motivated by America's "love affair with animal prints". We see the classic leopard print used in this halter bikini, wide band bottoms in the same print, accented with a gold ring on the hip.

A flower silhouette is used in this triangle top, pleated details, side adjustability, gold ring links on the straps, bikini bottom briefs in a matching pattern.

Last up we see this design has a strong French accent, off the shoulder monokini with a horizontal stripe pattern, picture those famous French shirts with white and red stripes, only these are brown and tan plus they are worn on a sexy bikini model, flowing cut outs on the side show of your rock'n bikini bod, wear this on Santos Beach and people might start asking for your autograph.
