Short of making it to the beach (or Brazil), you can view the latest bikini styles right in the city.

Even if you’re never flipped through the pages of a Vogue issue and are by no means a fashionista, we suspect you might like this particular fashion show. Appropriately named Summer Passion Night, this festival evening will combine models, bikinis, a runway, and cocktails. Five ‘dazzling models’ (including two Japanese finalists from the Miss Universe contest, as well as two Ukrainian and a half French/Jamaican) will strut on the catwalk to present the latest collections of Brazilian and Columbian swimsuits. In case you’re not familiar with that kind of fashion, South American bikinis are made in vibrant colours and rather sexy cuts (did we need to mention that?), and brands such as Paradizia and Lolli Swim are quite well-established worldwide.

We’re guessing both men and women can enjoy this event, which combines fashion and music- local DJs Oni, Emika and Hans will be providing the soundtrack for the night, and drinks will be flowing both indoors and on the terrace. If you wish to book a VIP table and get closer to the action, you can receive a free pair of Armani Exchange sunglasses…
