Miami Swim Week: Five Indie Designers To Watch

Categories: Fashion

We Are Handsome
If you like babes in bikinis--or even just half naked models--then your favorite week of the year is upon us. Hello, Miami Swim Week.

With so many shows, both official Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim functions and satellite events, it's impossible to see it all. But don't worry; we've done our homework and have hand-selected our five favorite indie designers gracing the catwalks this week.

Wildfox made a splash a few years ago with its artsy prints collection. Since then, the brand has shown us swimwear with constellations, horses, and even a nod to patriotism. But Wildfox is taking its cheeky designs down the sophisticated route for this collection, pairing prints like fruits and butterflies with va-va-voom-inducing deep plunges that scream class with a little sass.

Showing: Sunday, July 21, at Soho Beach House
Open to the public?: No.

Minimale Animale
If you've ever wanted to look like you've jumped out of The Fifth Element while at the beach, you'll want to sport some pieces from Minimale Animale. The brand was recently featured in the Sports Illustrated: Swim Edition (you know, the one with a near-frozen Kate Upton).

Showing: Monday, July 22 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim
Open to the public?: No.
