Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, Day Two: Bride of Frankenstein Goes to the Beach
Poko Pano jumped into the rainforest for its Spring/Summer 2013 offerings, with leaf prints, fruit prints, and puka shell necklaces. Metal sequined detailing and mosaic-style bird tiling were welcome surprises to the collection, and liquid-like shiny fabrics in neon oranges and greens made the rest of the neutral pieces pop.
Standout Looks: Zig-zag prints and the circle cut-out cover-up that's so jaw-dropping it could be worn from the beach to the club.
Trend Alert: High-waisted bikini bottoms are in.
The Vibe: Nature prints (leaves, fruit, birds) meet flirty fun
Cute Factor: The models actually smiled during the show -- rare for a runway (and totally welcome).
