Poko Pano 2011 Collection

The weather is truly miserable this time of the year in Ireland so we thought we’d show you something to cheer you up a bit. Swimwear designer Poko Pano have just released snapshots of their 2011 swimwear collection to give you an idea of where the brand and fashion trends are going for next season.

Among the lineup of new products are halter bikinis, bandeau bikini’s and one-piece swimsuits. Keeping in line with the Poko Pano design we’re seeing more luxury materials being used. Poko Pano likes to mix patterns with block colours for a twist and the use of pattern is prominent in their new pieces. The brazilian company also tend to mix-and-match pieces, putting a striped bikini top with a highly patterned bottom for some contrast.

A firm favourite on our site, we’re looking forward to seeing more of the pieces from the designer.

Note: these images can be viewed on the Poko Pano facebook page. You can also join TheBikiniShop on Facebook too for news and updates!

Bikini: Cause for Arrest?

Filed under: Bikini News,Funny Stuff,In the media — Tags: , , , , — admin @ 2:42 pm

A British woman has been arrested in the United Arab Emirates for walking through a 5 star shopping mall in her bikini.

Following a complaint the woman received from a native Emirate woman regarding her short skirt, an argument followed and the British woman decided to prove a point by stripping down to her bikini and parading through the mall.

Dubai, known for it’s strictly conservative laws has arrested and charged the woman for public indecency. Tourists to the country have come into trouble with the law on many occasions and jailed for not complying with the laws. What’s your thoughts on it? Should this woman do time for flaunting her skin in public, or is the law correct in punishing her for disobeying the country’s laws?
