Filipa Nascimento stars in the new swimwear campaign for the Calzedonia brand alongside Catarina Maia and Kika Cerqueira Gomes. The three CALZEDONIA GIRLS convey all their beauty, naturalness and energy in the stunning and unique landscapes of the Algarve. A 100% national production that reflects the beauty of the South of our country, and tells the summer adventures of three friends, with a young spirit, also present in the collection’s bikinis and swimsuits.
Filipa Nascimento tells us a little about this challenge:
What does it mean for you to be the protagonist of the first Calzedonia Friends campaign?
It is a great pride to be part of this family. I’ve always admired the brand and being part of Calzedonia’s first youth line campaign makes perfect sense to me, because I believe I have the characteristics of a Calzedonia Girl: being relaxed, having an adventurous and fun spirit!
Bikini or swimsuit?
I’m bikini team!
What is your favorite Swimwear model from this campaign? Because?
I soon fell in love with the Capri model, it was love at first sight. I think the model brings out a woman’s curves, it’s elegant and fun at the same time, both for the way it fits on the body, as for the flower pattern and the frills. These for me are essential characteristics to be a bikini of choice.
What is most important to you when choosing swimwear?
I’m always looking for a bikini that doesn’t leave too many marks and is comfortable above all!
What sets Calzedonia apart from other swimwear brands?
Calzedonia brings together the various characteristics that for me are essential in a Swimwear line: lightness, color, comfort and class. It’s not easy to find all these features in another brand.
What is your favorite beach in Portugal?
Caneiros beach, in Lagoa, in my mother’s city and where I go every year. I’ve visited many beaches in Portugal and never found one as beautiful as this one.
What are your beach essentials?
Sunscreen, water and as I’m a person who likes to eat, I don’t need some good snacks to accompany me.
What is your perfect summer plan? How do you usually pass the season?
Summer is my favorite season, I feel it’s the time of year when I have more plans and more activities, so it’s hard to choose just one plan, but I can say that I love a late afternoon on a terrace accompanied by snails and a very cold beer.
How would you describe yourself in one word?
What is the song that means summer for you?
Stolen Dance by Milky Chance. When this song is on the radio, it just makes me think of the summer!
What is your favorite time of day at the beach?
I’m a beach girl so I love to get there early and stay until sunset and enjoy every time of day.
What is the best beach accessory?
A bottle of water, no doubt. It’s impossible for me to spend a day at the beach without a bottle of water.
How would you describe the two friends who are leading this campaign with you.
Fellows in crime.
