DAY 4: 6 SHORE ROAD BY POOJA

6 Shore Road models strutted down the runway wearing boho chic designs with vibrant colors and textured patterns. From their #CertifiedCOOL mohawk braids by blo Blow Dry Bar Midtown Miami, to their animalistic eye make up and nose rings, this show had tribal written all over it. The designer created beautiful culturally-inspired artwork in the fabrics. The textiles were then masterfully transformed into the modern swimwear that graced the runway. Tribal references were a definite trend seen across many of the runways this year.

DAY 4: LOLLI

Miami, FL (July 22, 2014) – Celebrated swimwear brands Acacia and Lolli debuted their Cruise 2015 collections on Sunday, July 20th. Each brand featured their latest looks in back-to-back runway shows at Soho Beach House during Miami Swim Week to a jam packed crowd of leading editors, international buyers and celebrity fans including American country singer LeAnn Rimes, actor Eddie Cibrian, and Graceland’s Serinda Swan.

Hula girls were trending on the runways. Lolli kicked-off their show with hula girls in grass skirts dancing to the sweet sounds of Hawaii. The mood suddenly changed as hip-hop took over the playlist. The models had a blast on the runway in the playful pieces and some even held coconuts as a bikini top. Lolli Swim was packed full of flirty details, vibrant colors and soft, feminine detail. Designer Vy Nguyen incorporated sunny shades of citron yellow and sherbet pink into her collection of bikinis and one-pieces, featuring playful details like bows, stripes and eyelets that evoke a sense of sweet, playful childhood summers in the sun. Our favorite, the bikini bottom with a cute bow tie on the rear was #CertifiedCOOL!

    









The show’s finale was a COOL surprise as 2 models blew a kiss to the audience before jumping into the water!
