Bangles & Bikinis--Sobral Feature in the New York Post

More than halfway through July, how does one beat the New York City heat? Along with many New Yorkers, we here at Sobral USA the have tried in vain with our ice coffees, frosty tasty delights,and fashionably hip straw hats to take the edge off that summer swelter. What makes things all the more unbearable is that we work with art from one of the most beautiful and beachy places on earth, Rio de Janerio. Recently, The New York Post featured Sobral's Kandinsky Kasimir bangle ($100) was paired with a bold Diane Von Furstenburg animal-print bikini. This is such a perfect match considering Rio de Janerio is veritably the bikini capital of the world! Reading the Post one can just imagine the pleasure of lounging in a bikini and perhaps even sipping billini cocktails poolside (just can’t resist a little alliteration). Come and visit us at Sobral USA 412 Broadway in SoHo for your own bangle—and though we cannot transport you to Rio (as much as we would love to be there ourselves) we can provide you with the right summer accessories, and a blast of cool air conditioning--a nice respite from the hot SoHo sun.

Sobral Featured in July 3rd New York Post

The July 3rd issue of the New York Post features the Sobral bangles from the Kandinsky collection (medium bangle $60, and large $75). The title of the Post article is "Get Shirty!", a cute play on words based off of the phase "Get Shorty". The bangles are paired with a Tommy Hilfiger shirt dress, D&G sunglasses, and Kate Spade sandals. 

Sobral Wishes You a Happy 4th Of July!

Summer is officially here! It is time for sunscreen, lobster rolls, the beach and fireworks. New Yorkers have quickly switched from singing, “Born this way!” (Lady Gaga), in celebration of last week's Pride Parade, to proudly belting “Born in the USA!”  (the classic Springsteen anthem) in celebration of the Fourth of July. Today the subway is jam-packed with people heading to the Coney Island hot-dog eating contest, or the nearest neighborhood block party, wearing flag sweaters (despite the heat), flamboyantly painted nails, or essentially anything you can think of in red, white and blue. Sobral has some fabulous, albiet more practical options, for the holiday and was recently featured in the 4th of July post for the NYC blog Sicka Than Average. The SOBRAL Naturals Diamentes Necklace ($100), is a bold red that would pop any outfit--just perfect for an outside cookout, and the Chic Shock RJ bracelet ($50) in blue is a great blue option for the holiday.

House of Rossil Trunk Show at Sobral USA's SoHo Boutique

Saturday June 25th, Sobral USA hosted the House Rossil trunk show. Guests mingled whilst shopping, sipping lemonade and Cachaca (the national drink of Brazil), and munching on homemade brownies and fresh fruit. The day was a huge success, with a large turnout, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. It was a pleasure for Sobral to collaborate with such a wonderful clothing company--the boldness of the Sobral jewelry was the perfect compliment to the House of Rossil dresses.
