Miami Swimweek Review: Luli Fama
Miami-bred designer Luli Hanimian is always a hit during Miami Swim Week — they're widely regarded as one of the week's best parties — and this season's “Dream Catcher” collection made good on the hype, while delivering a show that somehow managed to score both in terms of artistry and out-and-out glam: Barely-there bikinis, intricately crocheted one-pieces, fringe details and more were at the fore of the collection — but what stood out most of all for us was the sex appeal.
Call the look boho-meets-Bond-girl — this surprisingly hard-to-achieve style is both organic and real while also super sultry. How'd she do it? Consider some of our favorite pieces, like sheer rompers and leather two-pieces that we couldn't decide if we wanted to wear or hang on the wall as art — the pieces were that intricately woven.
Yet Hanimian still managed to be playful, with prints like the namesake dream catcher—a flirty combination of pink, aqua and feathers. Bright animal prints and bodysuit crop tops also made appearances, as models were adorned with feathered temporary tats in interesting places. Make sure you check out the last slide above, a tapesty of weaving that's one part 1970s macrame class and one part "Bad Blood" assasin. Trust: You're going to want to get on the wait list for that one ASAP.
