South Beach Miami- The OASIS tent at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim 2014 Collections was filled to capacity on Monday July 22 for the Minimale Animale runway show. The Venice Beach brand delivered a sexy collection, the silhouette was athletic with barely there bathing suits, lots of playful mesh with one that had appropriately placed palm trees on a once piece suit and a pair of 7’s on a cropped sleeveless mesh top with high wasted bottom that had mesh inserts, as well as jersey inspired cover ups that were reminiscent of the styles from the late 80’s. The models wore minimal makeup, wet hair that was slicked back and no heels or accessories which focused the attention to the suites. Playful, fun, sporty and definitely sexy, this collection will turn up the heat for summer 2014.

South Beach Miami, Florida- Not even the torrential rain could stop the 2014 Barraca Chic collection that took place at the SLS Hotel in South Beach to kick off SWIM week.
This luxury alpine beachwear brand presented a collection inspired by cities around the world, added glitz and glamour by incorporating nearly 10,000 Swarovski crystals set by hand and holiday inspired pieces for all the snowbirds leaving the cold weather behind during the winter. The collection also had pieces for men including a tuxedo-trouser and versatile shorts that dry quickly and maintain an elegant yet sporty appearance.
The crowd took cover by the side of the pool where couches, lounge chairs and ottomans decorated the space; they also sipped on cocktails and listened to funky beats by the guest dj.
