Every year the hottest swim brands migrate to Miami Beach, and July 12 through July 17 marked yet another amazing season of swim wear fashion shows. The highly-anticipated swim show brings in the greatest players from around the world to debut swim and resort collections on the runway, through trade shows and during highly-coveted pop-up events throughout the city. Designers, buyers, and industry professionals from around the world flocked to Miami Swim Week’s annual swim and resort wear event. Lets see the best swimsuits in collections of 2019.
KAOHS Swim, a California-based swimwear company, made their second runway appearance at Miami Swim Week. The runway was decorated with displays of barrels and saloon swinging doors, and each model’s outfits carried an aspect of older country looks. The guests in attendance were fully entertained as each model brought their own fierce energy to the runway with looks featuring ropes, cowboy hats, chaps and even thigh high cowgirl boots. With swimsuits in a variety of cuts – from Brazilian to hipster and low to high, KAOHS Swim makes a swimsuit to flatter and become the ultimate confidence booster for every beach-going figure. Focusing on two-piece bikinis with a nod to one-piece swimsuits, KAOHS Swim’s collections feature edgy, feminine cuts, high-quality fabrics, and a playful, modern, and earthy palette of colors.
This year’s show, Haute Couture, took crochet to the next level with a mixture of sexy and modern swimwear styles, followed by delicate coverups. Inspired by the Greek Islands, the Bahamas, Hawaii and Malibu, Baes and Bikinis showcased a sexy swimwear line with plenty of knits, crochet, and delicate details. The brand combines imported soft fabrics and seamless comfort to encompass the lifestyle of the perfect low cut island bikini mixed with a flirty Malibu fit.
The Resort collection featured darker and slightly moody tones, with forest green polka dots, black and white florals, bronze and muted mustard yellows. Adding a more elevated vibe to the show, was the Spring collection, which highlighted various nude hues and dusty sky blues, alongside pops of fiery red coral, feminine yellow florals, and bright blue patterns. Both collections presented many new silhouettes and styles, ranging from cheeky Brazilian bottoms, to high 80’s-inspired cuts, to more modest coverage styles. Top trends included tie-front bandeaus, classic triangles, lace-up details, and asymmetrical one-shoulders.
Swimwear is very important, especially in the summer, if you leave near a beach or if you regularly attend pool parties. You want to step out in the best outfit and wow the crowd. On the flip side, rash guard-style suits were in great supply, though they’re not exactly designed to keep you safe from scratches, scrapes and the sun while you ride the waves. And if you love extra accents, no matter how unnecessary or cumbersome, 2019’s swimwear trends will have you covered.
