Papi’s latest collection, Suave, introduces a unique finishing concept—peaching—on the fabric that offers a thin, suede leather feel on the skin. Hitting store shelves this weekend, Suave consists of a Brazilian and European trunk ($22) as well as a tank top ($28). Check out the line and then read more about Papi’s innovate finishing concept after the jump.
“The concept of peaching the Micro-Polyester Spandex is something we have not seen in the market and so we developed the collection Suave, which literally means soft and sleek,” says Lucio De Carvalho, Vice President of Design for Papi.
Made from 88 % polyester and 12% spandex, the fabric is brushed on the inside to create a plush comfortable feeling, according to De Carvalho. The Micro-Polyester fabrics typically offer a soft feel on the skin. “But on Suave, we added one more step to make it even softer,” he adds. “We kept the outside of the garment as is so the colors are vibrant and the print is sharp.”
The trunks are offered in retro inspired colors and are available in shades of black, iron ore, rio, geisha red, sunset and cayo. “We also went back to our original Papi logo with the oval outline going around it,” says De Carvalho. The line is offered S-XL.

WORN: Blue Papi Ibiza 2 Pack Brazilian Trunk Medium
FUNCTION: Everyday, Going out, Relaxing
FIT: True to size
FABRIC: 88% Polyester, 12% Spandex
The Look: Sexy, fun, stylish.
The Design: Inspired by Papi’s ongoing push for brilliant colors, the Papi Ibiza 2 Pack Brazilian Trunk features a crisp, solid trunk and a plaid-print trunk. Geometric lines and strategically designed 3D effect make this underwear truly pop. Influenced by Hispanic cultures, Papi offers a vivid mix of green, blue, yellow and purple.
The Fit: Offering a soft stretch fabric with additional room for an ideal body contouring fit, the Papi Ibiza 2 Pack Brazilian Trunk offers a fresh, comfortable feel. The fabric blend of polyester and spandex has moisture wicking and quick-dry properties and is highly breathable, enough to keep you dry and fresh throughout the day.
The Construction: The luxurious mix of polyester and spandex for the Papi Ibiza 2 Pack Brazilian Trunk provides a strong stretch and comfortable feel. The fabric is sewn seamlessly and almost appears invisible to the naked eye. The trunk, which gives an unobtrusive contour for the body, is resistant to shrinking and fading.
The Underwear Expert Opinion: Infused with Papi’s signature bright, bold colors, the Papi Ibiza 2 Pack Brazilian Trunk offers the best of both worlds: a solid black pair with a yellow, purple, blue or green waistband and a plaid print in yellow, purple, blue or green that complements the black pair’s waistband. The cool, comfortable fit and eye-catching design is an instant win.
