Brazilian Show Room Hawaii bikini specialists and retail company has expanded from its Kaimuki flagship store and has come to Kailua, where it celebrated its grand opening Aug. 1 in Kailua Town Center.
Known for its authentic swimsuits from Brazil, the Brazilian Showroom has grown in popularity a”mong island women and visitors who look forward to selecting from exclusive styles not offered on the Mainland or in other countries.
“I only buy Brazilians, and this new store will be awesome because now Kailua will have San Lorenzo and the Brazilian Show Room,” said Kailua native Sheraden Eber.
The showroom occupies a 500-square-foot space near Fighting Eel, Executive Chef and Whole Foods in the Kaneohe Ranch project, completing the center’s third phase. Its Hawaii owner, Nadia Ribeiro, chose Kailua for its second store because of all the area customers who have been loyal to BSR from the start.
“We have so many customers who currently drive all the way from Kailua to shop at our store in Kaimuki,” Ribeiro explained. “We are excited to open this store for the many beachgoers here.
“We have bikinis for all kinds of bodies, ages and coverage,” she added.
A native of Brazil, Ribeiro has more than 20 years of experience with fashion merchandise and personally selects all merchandise — that includes 50 different styles of bikini bottoms alone. BSR also has sizes ranging from small to extra large, and designs for all different body shapes.
“I think that Kailua customers are going to love the new store,” said Ribeiro, who said she’s bringing her best items to the Windward side. “The place is beautiful with bamboo, mountains painted on the walls, and a waterfall. It’s almost going to be like a refuge for people, where they can relax. It’s really unique.”
She also carries men’s beachwear, women’s apparel, slippers, jewelry and sunglasses. For more information, call 262-3211.
