Article excerpt by Hope Wilkos of The Examiner
“Ten years of swimwear evolution has culminated to today, 2014, and the ten-year anniversary of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, which is underway right now from July 17 through July 21, 2014
It is simple to see why Mercedes-Benz rules the road as exotically decorated designer vehicles lined the entrance to the host hotel, The Raleigh, located on Collins Avenue in the heart of South Beach.
Friday evening, July 18, 2014, gave us back to back swim shows from Poko Pano, Dolores Cortes, Frankie’s Bikinis, Clover Canyon, Wildfox Swim, We Are Handsome, Sinesia Karol and one of the best shows of the evening was saved for last. Beach Bunnyfeaturing The Blonds, packed the Cabana Grande’ tent to capacity in anticipation of what promised to be the sexiest and most grandiose fashion presentation of the night. As the lights dimmed and the music echoed throughout the tent, all eyes were fixated on the runway as three mannequin-like models appeared at the top of the runway. At that very moment, the venue exploded with dazzling beauty as Beach Bunny 2015 Spring Presentation ‘Electric Barbarella’ began.
These were not your ordinary swimwear designs, nor were they your ordinary models. Hailey Clauson opened the show, recognized face of the 2014 Beach Bunny Summer Campaign and seen on famous designer runways for New York and Paris Fashion Week in the past. Sports Illustrated superstar,Samantha Hoopes, mesmerized with her sparkling and seductive smile. Yara Khmidan hit the runway after shooting the 2015Beach Bunny Campaign. The newest addition to the team of tantalizing professionals is the brand’s 2014 Model Search winner, Mathilda Bernmark.
Nothing could surpass this collection which transported us swiftly into a sultry future of the fierce fashionista living in a totally technological world. ‘Electric Barbarella’ has just landed and the 2015 Spring Presentation made us want to stay out in space and relish in the lavish pieces drenched in diamonds, electrifying colors, gleaming metallics and cosmic crystals. Stellar inspired prints displayed a vision of retro futurism combined with an incredibly sexy design aesthetic that we have come to expect and look forward to from this brand.
