New York, Milan, and Paris may be the reigning capitals of the runaway, but Miami certainly knows how to mix fun with fashion.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, honoring top swimwear brands from around the world. But it wasn’t all lycra and triangle tops – the designers presented some pretty creative interpretations of what high-fashion would be on the boardwalk.

Here are some of our favorite looks. Whether they’re functional is debatable… but we at Sudsies are adept in cleaning couture garments… even the itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie ones.

Mirror, Mirror – Sauvage’s muse model glinted with a pieced-together top of shiny metal. Talk about blindingly beautiful in the sunlight.

Stage Presence – Over-the-top pieces from Beach Bunny Featuring The Blonds channeled pop star divas like Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Katie Perry with burlesque-like beading, intricate hardware, and hologram materials.

Boat Couture – Jankele suits were more like art pieces with intricate hand beading combined with architecturally interesting silhouettes.

NETworth – Perhaps most representative of Miami flair was the Luli Fama collection. She made crochet vibrantly chic with fun colors, tassels, and fringe that made us want to shimmy.
