MBIFW 2012 Swimwear: Emma

Emma Swimwear’s debut collection at Miami Beach International Fashion Week brought with it the warmth of the Greek Isles, home to emerging designer Emmanuela Iliaki. Despite this being her first collection, Emma has enjoyed top-level fashion experience, working previously for esteemed fashion houses such as Alexander McQueen. Partial to prints that favor the bohemian, Emma names her inspiration as the elements and simplicity of nature.

MBIFW 2012 Swimwear: Minka

Minka Swimwear Last Walks - Miami Beach International Fashion Week 2012

Miami Beach International Fashion Week wrapped on the 24th and we’ve been working hard to get some images up as quickly as possible for your viewing pleasure. Though I’m admittedly not much of a swimwear fan, I’ve plucked out a few favorite pieces from the Swimwear Showcase last week.

Below you’ll find Minka Swimwear by Bahamian designer Latoya Moxey. Think Bond Girl meets Greek goddess. The cuts were simple, clean, and referential of the 1970’s in a very sexy-spy-movie kind of aesthetic. You can see more Minka designs on Facebook and can expect to see the collection in upscale boutiques later this year.

I’ll be updating the blog with pics from my favorite shows, so keep checking back. You can also see more pics from the show on our Facebook page.

Suit Up for Happy Hour

The weather in Scottsdale has been nothing short of perfect: crisp, sunny, breezy and not a drop of humidity in sight. But as Miami teeters dangerously close to Summer even in the very beginnings of Spring, a girl has to set aside fantasies of cooler days and just suit up.

In today’s Happy Hour, I give you a few suits to splurge on this payday – swimsuits that will have you begging for those scorching Summer days on the beach. Or at least a really great lounge chair to wear them on while channeling your inner Bettie Page.
