Sassy Latina and former “Real Housewives of Miami” star Cristy Rice uses her exuberant flair and vivacious personality as the foundation for Cuban Rice, her swimwear and accessories collection. The brand is inspired by Cristy’s vibrant Cuban heritage, life in the multicultural city of Miami and her free-spirited personality. Handmade in Colombia, Cuban Rice’s beautifully crafted beading and embroidered detailing make each individual swimsuit a unique work of art. The contemporary line currently retails for $125 to $300 and is sold online and in the US and Caribbean markets.
Cuban Rice is meant to be worn by the confident, chic and trendy teen or woman, who believes she is beautiful in her own skin. The dynamic line stands by the notion that beauty comes from within and that “la actitud is everything,” as Cristy firmly believes, which means “your attitude is everything”. Islander at heart, Cristy's passion for the beach, fun in the sun, music and parties are elements that are all reflected in her collections “Cubanita”, “Gypsy”, “Jewels”, and "Dreams".
“Cubanita”, featured 12 signature bikinis, which were all given feisty and Cuban-themed names, such as Cubanita Sexy, Cubanita Rumbera and Cubanita Loca.
“Gypsy”, Cuban Rice’s second collection featured new eye-catching designs, which include neons, nudes, fringe, reversible styles, animal prints, baroque prints and some bling.
“Jewels” and "dreams" surprised us with a more delicate and innocent look. both featured seamless suits, pastels, crochets, lace, lots of macramé and beautiful unique and intricate designs. the bright colors, sexy styles and fun prints remain throughout each collection in some form or another to remain true to the concept of her line.
