Revista Perfil 2015
Our IGUANA one-piece long-sleeved swimsuit, featured in PERFIL Magazine. Photo captured while contemporary dancers re-interpreted version of the 'Devil's Dance' during our Mercedes Benz Fashion Week San Jose 2015 runway show where Guayaberi presented USHE Collection; collection included swimsuits, cover-ups, casual pants, dresses and skirts.
Guayaberi's collection called USHE stands for 'to transform' in the Brunka language spoken by the Boruca indians in Costa Rica. The Boruca indians have a dance called the 'Baile de los Diablitos' (Devil's Dance), when performing the dance, they dress up in wooden masks carved with animal features and remember through their dance a time when they were forced to defend their land and their people. USHE tries to capture this transformation from peace-harmony (softness and fragility, pastel) to something strong, shielded (oversized, square, dark). This is done through an exploration of color and form.
