Last night, one of my favorite bikini designers hit the Mercedes Benz Miami Swim runways for day two - Poko Pano. I've been such a fan of this Brazilian line as I love that it blends sporty aesthetics with the uber feminine as well. it's such a fun way tp present swimwear without the fussiness. I also love how this show is accessorized as well (large necklace pieces, wrapped bracelets and more). Check out more about this line at the Mercedes Benz site as well as watch the video from last night's show.
Last week I talked about how much I liked Poko Pano and now I can show you my favorite bikini from last night's show at the Mercedes Benz Swim Miami Fashion Week Show at the Oasis. I love that there is a lot of sweet and sass in this collection and you're super beach ready when you are wearing these cool colors. I love the play with prints and the fact that this suit is definitely complimentary with its top and bottom; however, it isn't matchy matchy! What a great show to be included with the end of this series of Fashion Week since last night was the final day. There are a lot of shows and images that are still amazing to look at, so click the link above. For next year when considering attending the shows, think about how you can get that amazing VIP access by purchasing your tickets through AMEX so that you're not only front row but you can enjoy other member only benefits such as the parties and the trunk shows. In addition to checking out the main site, Coutorture has also kept a close eye on the shows so you can also check it out here as well!
We take this break from the Mercedes-Benz Miami Swim Fashion Week to suggest that there is only one thing that this event is missing and that is yummie Pinkberry and hello, Lychee is back! I never knew they had it but being a purist, I never have any toppings on my Green Tea Pinkberry but this weekend, I will enjoy having Lychee which is one of my favorite fruits to enjoy. Now if I was at the runway shows I would love to see Poko Pano's show on Mon with a cup of Pinkberry in my hand, I do believe that it would make my experience complete and absolutely tasty as well! If you're in NYC this weekend, you know where you may find me (my fave one is by my wing place with amazing pint specials) - of course when I am heading on the train, there is one that I like to go to there as well to make my walk a little cooler! I don't really care about the health debate about Pinkberry or the Fro Yo wars that are going on, I'm a Pinkberry Girl (and yes still a Buttercup Girl as well).
I am a huge fan of Brazilian designers from those that do denim to those that do swimwear! Poko Pano is one of my favorite swimwear designers and they will be participating within this year's Mercedes-Benz Swim Fashion Week on Mon the 21st at the Oasis! I can't wait to show you great images from this show! In the meantime, enjoy the Rosalea in black from Poko Pano which is available on Couture Candy (as a side note, kudos to Couture Candy which allows you to mix sizes for your swimsuits - I am always frustrated when I can't do this on Bluefly). I love the bottoms which have such a dramatic look to it and of course you can never go wrong with a great chic black look! This is perfect to wear on the beach or to grab a sarong as you have your own impromptu roofdeck party or whatever space you have available for drinks. Once again if you will be in Miami, make sure you have your VIP access by making sure to get your tickets through AMEX! I can't wait until I go next year for myself!
