For Charina Sarte, being sexy at the beach is a no-brainer. A favorite among celebrities and Manila's young, hip society, this young designer constantly churns out über-stylish clothes that strike just the right balance between chic sexiness and all-out glamor. So it shouldn't be a surprise that her resort wear pieces are no different.

Flirty, perked up with an edge of tribal chic and spiced up with animal prints, Charina's Summer 2010 collection debuted in the Azure Launch and Fashion Show last April 16.

“This collection is made up of my resort wear staples. I have a few maillots, bikinis, a kaftan, and a jumpsuit. Animal print is of course a signature look for my clothes,” the designer tells us. “This season I found this beautiful butterfly print and a really gorgeous blood orange leopard print which I absolutely love.”

Charina also tells us that every time she makes a summer collection, she always has in mind a bohemian muse, “Someone who loves to travel and loves fashion just as much.”

We know every girl out there has a streak of bohemian sexiness in them, so check out Charina's summer 2010 collection in the photo gallery after reading her Designer Spotlight interview!
