Today I have a great swimwear style to introduce to you, the RufRod from RufSkin. In general, the swimwear creations by RufSkin have always been greatly influenced by the Brazilian style. The so-called Sungas, which is a very popular cut in Brazil, is practically a synonym for comfort, masculinity, and sex appeal. RufRod, the recently introduced new swimwear style, is a Sunga and was inspired by model and television personality Rodiney Santiago.
You may remember Santiago from LogoTV’s A-List New York, or from his more recent project Couples Therapy on VH1. Rodiney is originally from Brazil, but moved to the US in 2006 to study English. He signed a modeling contract in Miami soon after.
“The collaboration between RufSkin and Rodiney is a natural fit,” said RufSkin President Douglas Coats. “We’re excited to be working together with one of the sexiest men on TV to create this collection. It’s a winning combination that we think everyone will love.”
The RufRod line of swimwear is made up of solid color blocks, mesh and patterns with a color palette chosen by Rodiney and RufSkin designer Hubert Pouches. Santiago was greatly involved with the fit of this line, so as to give it the true Brazilian authenticity. The differently styles and designs in the collection are named after some Brazilian coastal cities such as Angra, Lagoa and Busios, to name a few.
