Bienvenido a Miami! This is the one Fashion Week where less is always more and the bevy of designers that show during Swim (many of whom are Latino BTW) always seem to take that message to new heights. Lycra, leather, fringe, flowers—you name it, it's on a bikini, one-piece, monokini, or bandeaukini. Take a look at the most outrageous looks that were sent down the catwalk.
1. Dolores Cortes
When you mix leather, crazy cut-outs, and metal plates, you wind up with this. A possible option for J.Lo’s next video shoot on a yacht?
Florals are always huge for summer, but this high-waist brief is taking things to the next level. Do those wilt in water?
3. Salma Hayek
The 48-year-old star enjoyed time in the water along with her husband Francois-Henri Pinault, their daughter Valentina, 7, and French producer pal Thomas Langmann while vacationing in St. Barths.
We’re getting an old-school Madonna vibe from this suit. The new cone cups, perhaps?
5. Mara Hoffman
How Mara Hoffman does mixed prints. We can’t wait to see which A-list Latina is brave enough to rock this one!
Metallics and pelvic bones—clearly a combination trend for 2015.
We’re guessing the inspiration for this collection was “Creatures of Flight?” Fringe: clearly an embellishment that can be used many ways.
8. Minimale Animale
Glad to see sheer isn’t going anywhere next season.
