Swim Week has ended as quickly as it began leaving us with many memories of the shows that we attended. While it is almost impossible to escape the uniformity of trends and colors, we were happy to see that every designer that we saw found a clever way to stay on trend and unique to their own aesthetic. So here are a few of our observations paired with a few pictures of our favorite looks from our favorite shows.
1. Sinesia Karol
Location: The Setai Hotel
Day: Friday July 17th 8 p.m.
Possibly our favorite show. Sinesia brought us the best of summer with her gorgeous couture swim suits and resort wear. She embraced the warm purple and golds of the upcoming season but she also introduced light warm blues pairing beautiful textures with luxurious fabrics. We sat among her friends and family as even they whispered:
“I think that this is her best collection yet.”
Being that the designer is a prominent fixture in our current issue, we can’t help but admit that we love everything that the designer provides in all of her collections. True to her aesthetic, it was not about shocking her audience, which consisted of the who’s who, with loud colors and patterns. The poetry is always in the collection’s design. Her looks were effortless, elegant, enchanting and yet intricate. Her closing piece left us all in an editorial summer daze. Like we could imagine having that suit on the digital pages of Worthy right now.
2. Keva J
Location: The Ritz-Carlton Hotel South Beach
Day: Saturday July 18th 2-4 p.m.
The upcoming season seems to be a sharp cry from last season, which opted for dark colors, textured swim suits with long sleeves. For the upcoming season we can look forward to vibrant colors we are happy that purple and gold stayed and that black will never depart. Keva J gave us all the colors of the upcoming season. Her unique signature was that her suits were layered and cut to perfection with perfectly placed muted gray and white swim pieces. We lost count of the gasps of excitement her audience accounted for. Did we mention that Eva Marcelle was in attendance and loved the pieces?
3. Liliana Montoya
Location: Funksion Tent
Day: Thursday: 6 p.m.
What we love about this designer is her ability to make every collection unique and signature to a specific season. What we saw last year was very different from what we saw this year. Down to the cut of her suits and her color choices. Her looks were the perfect mermaid oasis complete with Dash of Flash tattoos. Vibrant, intrinsic and dreamy are the words we would use to describe her collection.
4. Lila Nikole
Location: 1 Hotel South Beach
Day: Sunday 6 p.m.
Calling in one of our favorite worthy women of 2014, Lila Nikole offered up a show that hypnotically trendy and signature. We loved the conscious choice to showcase one piece swim suits paired with playful, fashion forward sneakers from Kruzin footware.
5. Anita Rincon
Location: Riviera Hotel South Beach
Day: Sunday 2-4 p.m.
This was the collection for the curvy and confident woman. Purples, dark greens and golds glistened in the summer haze by the pool at the Riviera Hotel in South Beach. The designer paired her looks with one of a kind accessories from Erica Mena’s accessory collection, HER. We loved every detail.
