The Mikoh Swimwear 2015 collection was the talk of the town last night as they released their 2015 swimwear line at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim. The brand debuted to a packed house, where even such high profile designers like Tori Praver had to stand at the back of the house to get a good glimpse.
Just some quick history of the brand, Mikoh Swimwear is the collaboration of sister duo Oleema and Kalani Miller. Born and bred in the small beach town of San Clemente in Orange County, California, Oleema and Kalani grew up with the ocean in their backyard. Ths Mikoh Swimwear line is their statement on swimwear for the modern woman, inspired by a life spent in bikinis and oceans around the world.
Oleema and Kalani were raised in a family of surfers, designers, and lovers of the sea. Both were encouraged to explore creativity and self-expression — Oleema through her passion for all things fashion and Kalani with a paintbrush in hand. Creative expression was the spirit of the household and the water was a second home.
That’s why Mikoh 2015 was such a creative, awe-inspiring collection. For me, the 2015 Mikoh Fashion Show embodied simplicity and confidence. One of the main trends, however, was the strappy embellishments on the top and bottoms. Strappy tops and caged bikinis are in the same family and the extra straps give an added flair to the swimsuit.
The rest of the Mikoh 2015 collection did not disappoint. We’re looking forward to seeing more from this brand, and embracing that California-cool culture.
