Electric Barbarella: Beach Bunny Swimwear ft. The Blonds MBFW Swim 2015 Show

Beach Bunny Brings Us, ‘Electric Barbarella’

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 Hooper, 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.

BB: How many places have you taken your Beach Bunny to so far?

TBA: I’ve traveled to around 35 countries in total since I began traveling full-time in 2011.  Beach Bunny has been everywhere from the French Riviera to Australia with me!

Burning Manb u r n i n g m a n

BB: What is one of your favorite memories shared abroad with your trusty Beach Bunny?

TBA: I think my favorite Beach Bunny memory was with my first BB I ever got.  My girlfriends and I rocked BB on a sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands.  Normally, I’ll pack a bikini for each day of a vacation yet I ended up wearing that one bikini the whole trip because I loved it so much.  I’ve never had a bikini fit me so perfectly!

BB: If you had to pick one Beach Bunny suit to take with you for the rest of your travels, which would it be and why?

TBA: I love the Beach Bunny underwire tops and cheeky bottoms.  As a girl with curves, I’ve never felt more confident in a bikini!

Berlin.Germany-2
b e r l i n

BB: You’ve seen a lot of amazing places, but which place would you say gave you and your Beach Bunny the best view?

TBA: The ultimate bikini destinations I’ve brought my Beach Bunny were probably Cote d’Azur (south of France) and on a sailing trip to Sardinia and Corsica.  Every girl needs to experience the Mediterranean! Gorgeous blue water and the kiss of the sun can’t be beat.

Lisbon.Portugal

BB: What is your favorite thing about your Beach Bunny bikinis?

TBA: My favorite thing about Beach Bunny is how unique the bikinis are. Whether you’re a girly girl or a bit of a rebel, there’s a BB bikini for you!
