Sizzling Styles From Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim
What’s better than hot bathing suits, hot weather and hot models? This might sound like man’s fantasy, but I’m actually talking about Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, which just wrapped up in Miami. Now swim isn’t like the other global fashion week’s sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, it carries much more of a party atmosphere and attracts a different demographic then say New York or Berlin. But, being a California girl and a beach regular, I love seeing the trends and styles that are emerging for summer 2012. Therefore, I had to share some of the swimsuit highlights below…
Designer Norma Kamali had a retro fabulous presentation with mostly nude pieces, but she mixed it up some blues and black. Her style is classic, so it’s no surprise her variation of the one piece remains a staple.
Next, a brand from down under, Kooey presented stand-out swirl and feather prints along with ibrant neon lime, bright purple, vivid blue and orange colors which were inspired by Australia’s indigenous culture and native birds. How amazing is that purple top? Gimme!
Going for a goddess theme, a line I hadn’t heard of, Aguaclara showed pieces which had golden accents and asymmetrical designs. The khaki wrap arounds on their bottoms are a unique touch to their provocative suits.
Lastly, if you want to get a taste of the swim runway atmosphere check out Diesel‘s show below, where you’ll see lots of bright colors, stripes, and neon accents. Talk about looks that’ll have you ready for some fun in the sun!
