Tropical Prints Meet Wild Wild West at 2nd Floor Spring 2013

RIO DE JANEIRO – We didn’t know Rio had it in them. How has this tropical area of Brazil suddenly turned Wild, Wild West? 2nd Floor has done it with their Tropical Western themed Spring/Summer 2013 runway at Fashion Rio. With colors like white, blue, yellow, and black, 2nd Floor showcases a mix of Brazil’s best tropical prints and plant patterns mixed with the West–or the stereotypical aspects of it that Brazil has come to know best. That means cowboy hats, fringe, and typical Western silhouettes in a glamorous ready-to-wear style. It begins with white and later merges into colorful hues of the Brazilian flag.
