Day 5 Part 2 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami 2012


Earlier in Day 5 we saw diNelia Brazil, A.Z Arujo, Aguaclara, Aquarella Swimwear, and Have Faith Swimwear. Next we saw Kooey Swimwear Australia, Nicolita, Sonia Vera Swimwear. 

Kooey’s collections include separates and one-piece swimwear as well as resort wear, including kaftans, pants and t-shirts. Sizes range from XS-XL in a wide variety of styles to suit every body type. 100% Australian made with a pre-treated Lycra ensuring the colorful prints have an increased resistance to fading. Their new collection was inspired by the Australian desert and it’s rich bold colors.


Nicolita was next with their cuban-inspired collection designed by Nicole Di Rocco. Unique, flattering, conservative sexy styles that any woman can wear and feel confident at the beach or poolside.


Sonia Vera Swimwear’s fifth collection, Resort Getaway 2012 is a combination of Vera’s Club Canella swim classics, Black Label originals, and Beach Couture separates. Combining fabrics and hardware that Vera hand-selected from her trips to Italy & France, Resort 2012 mixes a serene color palette with brilliant metalwork and striking silhouettes.

“I took blues from the sky and ocean, soothing earth tones, clean neutrals– then threw in jolts of color. Teals, greens, dusty pinks, fresh pastels– all hues to lift your spirit yet calm your soul.”

This season’s swimsuits incorporate strappy halters, sporty asymmetrical bandeaus, retro briefs, plunging necklines and Sonia Vera’s signature Butterfly Twist bikini. Vera’s use of intricate beading, draping, and accent lacing complete the collection’s “luxury castaway” theme. Resort 2012 includes the widest array of Beach Couture cover-ups and separates the brand has exhibited thus far. Hand-dyed laces, feather prints and billowy silk chiffons create ethereal pieces that are as appropriate for a private party as they are for the pool itself. Featuring blouses, pants, dresses, shorts, and vests, Sonia Vera creates everything her jet-setting muse will need to fill her suitcase this season.
