Nicolita ended Fashion Week Swim on a high note with, easily, the most spirited show of the event. Designer Nicole Di Rocco paid homage to her homeland with sexy suits; festive flounces; colorful accessories; and a soundtrack of classic Cuban songs, Miami bass and freestyle favorites that had audience dancing in and out of their seats.
Over at SwimShow, we saved the best for last with visits to some standout booths. (From left to right) Already a hit in Brazil, Rosa Cha founder Amir Slama debuts his innovative collection in North America, as well as a swimwear collaboration with lingerie label Myla. Karla Colletto‘s collection mixes modern color blocking with retro silhouettes. California-designed and Colombia-made line La Isla brings already dynamic prints to life with intricate embroidery. Alexis epitomizes the jet set lifestyle with fashion-forward swimsuits, day-to-evening cover ups and coordinating accessories.
We also discovered some of the most covetable pieces of beachwear on our last day at SwimShow. (From left to right) Our Best in Show includes a patchwork of polka dots from Camilla and Marc, a color-blocked two-piece from Clube Bossa, a lace-trimed surplice maillot from Zimmermann and a Hanne Bloch poncho printed with a sketch done by her daughter.
Thank you, Miami, for a fantastic week of fashion, fêtes and the friendliest people around. See you next year!
