Tonight was the first night of runway shows at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami, and closing the night was one of our favorite brands, 2015 Beach Bunny Swimwear. This year Beach Bunny, normally known for its luxury fashion-forward designs, announced its return to Mercedes Benz Fashion Show with a jaw-dropping collaboration. They decided to team up with celebrity-coveted design duo, The Blonds. Together, Beach Bunny Swimwear and The Blonds produced a phenomenal show never before seen on the swimwear runways. We are talking an AMAZING display of 2015 swimwear as well as some of the hottest trends around.
Beach Bunny’s 2015 fashion show brought the heat to Miami Beach, creating media frenzy with fashion’s hottest supermodels, Hailey Clauson and Samantha Hoopes, who made their debut on the swimwear catwalk. But we wouldn’t be the top swimwear company around without dropping hints on the amazing trends we saw tonight from the behind-the-scenes runway show.
First things first, our predictions came true with the caged bikinis. We saw a TON of strappy bikinis with the extra ties, and the caged styles running up the ribs and hips. Besides the caged tattoos, but we also saw a few new trends sneaking into the mix.
There was a huge metallic element to the 2015 Beach Bunny Swimwear show that we cannot overlook. Metallic lycra and metallic under mesh really came through under the runway lights. Huge gems adorned some of the bikinis, which also added an extra emphasized space element. All of the models in the 2015 Beach Bunny show were dressed like Intergalatic space chicks with poofy hairstyles and futuristic makeup and accessories. Even at some point in the show the Beastie Boys hit “Intergalactic” began to play and everything fused together effortlessly. Most of the models wore knee high leather boots to accompany their swimwear styles, which were sexy and stylish.
Another crucial fashion trend revolved around hooded bikini tops. Whether these are actually practical for the beach, or predominantly for resort or music festival wear, Beach Bunny showcased a plethora of pieces with this hooded top style. This trend does ultimately seem like it would protect from the sun, however I would imagine getting that extra fabric wet in the water would be extremely uncomfortable. Perhaps a hooded removable rashguard would done the trick.
And by the way….. did we mention we sat RIGHT beyond Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl Nina Agdal? Although Ms. Agdal was not too fond of paparazzi photos during the event, and in fact made a very quick bee-line to the exit after the show, she still was repping one of her favorite brands, and one of our favorite brands, Beach Bunny Swimwear.
Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim events.
