Watch: Highlights from Miami Swim Fashion Week 2013
For swimwear one simply can't go past Miami. Which is why we thought it appropriate to bring you all the hottest swimwear designs fresh off the catwalk from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim 2013. Now entering it's final day, so far audiences have been treated to stunning swimsuits from designers including Mara Hoffman, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Gottex, Red Carter, and L*Space by Monica Wise.
For L*Space by Monica Wise, the collection featured Southwestern geometrics and Art Deco designs accentuated by Native American influences. Her versatile line included floaty maxi dresses, and beach cover-ups based on a palette of orange, turquoise, and coral.
During the Mara Hoffman presentation, models were described as "desert outlaw gypsies," where her signature prints were allowed to roam free. In eye-popping colours and patterns, Hoffman's summer wear often took on an Aztec/tribal feel thanks to beaded necklines, intricate prints and metal jewellery.
The Red Carter show was filled with metallics and references to the Rio Carnivale. Gold and bronze swimsuits hit the catwalk along with multi-coloured mosaic printed styles. Chunky tribal necklaces, large hoop earrings and cuffs also added a touch of glamour. Check out a video from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim for all the latest highlights.
