On­line store Sol Search­ing Brazil (www. sol search­ing brazil. com) has a thing for Brazil­ian brands – which are not only made for our equa­to­rial cli­mate, but de­fend against it too. “Our pri­mary fo­cus is on in­no­va­tive ap­parel that has gone through vig­or­ous tests and cer­ti­fi­ca­tions to pro­tect against the re­gion’s harm­ful UV rays and mos­qui­toes,” says co-founder Jeremy Lim. The star is H.Sun, which spe­cialises in lightweight fab­rics with the high­est pos­si­ble ul­tra­vi­o­let pro­tec­tion fac­tor (UPF) 50+, which blocks out 98 per cent of both UVA and UVB rays. They have also been treated with a re­pel­lent – cer­ti­fied by WHO – that keeps the Aedes mos­quito away, yet is non-toxic to hu­man skin. Made into tees, hats and caps, the UPF50+ is per­ma­nent, while in­sect re­pel­lency will last 40 washes if proper wash in­struc­tions are fol­lowed.

Swimwear brand La Playa – one of the la­bels car­ried by Sol Search­ing – is known for its fun, risque de­signs and bold prints.
