And just like that, Miami Swim Week 2016 is wrapped! This year we debuted our newest collection Le Romantique. Our ambition was to create a powerful experience, a fantasy of infinite travel with french infusion. Envision a girl with a free soul embarking on her travels through Europe and her craving for wanderlust is what drives her passion. Weren’t able to make it? No problem. Keep reading to feel like you were sitting front row at our show & sipping drinks from coconuts at our cocktail party.
We want you all to be able to experience the aloha we felt at this show. You can expect to feel the translated passion from the artisans that handmade each and every ‘kini in the collection. Le Romantique is an ode to the creative spirit. Needless to say, our SL babes absolutely rocked these looks on the runway.
Not sure if its the way that she swings her hips or that super exotic fire she has in her eyes, or maybe both, but we love some Leila Thomas. We couldn’t get enough since we last shot for our LA BOHEME collection, so we had to bring her again and grace our VINTAGE ALOHA collection with everything that makes her beautiful self. After a wild week for Swim Miami, we spent our last day exploring around the beaches of south Miami as we channel our island roots in this palm paradise.
The last few hours leading up to the catwalk can be both exciting and overwhelming. As the stage is getting prepared and chairs are being lined up, it is much like the calm before the storm. On the outside, everything is quiet and tranquil . But behind the scenes, models, hair & makeup artists, designers, and stylists are hard at work putting the final touches on their collections before they’re presented to the world. The process of getting ready for the final moment where MIND . BALI . SOUL took the stage, involved hair stylists spending time braiding and weaving traditional balinese flowers into the models hair, makeup artists painting the model’s faces to look effortless and naturally beautiful , and stylists making sure the bright and exotic prints of Bali fit the models bodies perfectly. We felt a special connection with our whole team, and shared great conversations and laughs as we got ready to take the stage. We’re so thankful for everyone’s hard work and the part everyone played in bringing MIND . BALI . SOUL to life. It was definitely a night to remember!
And just like that our first solo show at Miami Swim Week is over! Our collection MIND BALI SOUL was a stand out on the catwalk. Inspired by everything Balinese, the luscious fabrics, unique models, and fresh flowers made our vision come to life. For the next half hour the audience was transported out of Miami and onto the islands of Indonesia. Now we know all our SL babes couldn’t be in Miami, so we want to take you back in time to re-experience this magical moment with us.
We are still obsessing over the opening moment of the show– a vision of sunset and silhouette, the models moved like naturals dancing to traditional Balinese music.
