MIA MARCELLA SWIMWEAR’S 2015 COLLECTION SIZZLES @ MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK IN MIAMI 2015 !
SMI FASHION / July 17-21 2014
MIAMI (SMI-WIRE 07.17-07.21.14) Napa Valley, California’s Mia Marcelle Swimwear, opened their second swimwear collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: Swim. The Cabana Grande tent set the stage for the group show, with Mia Marcelle setting the pace with a string quartet performing Michael Jackson throwback Beat It. The evening was high in anticipation as the young brand also debuted the first looks from their men’s swimwear collection M. Marcelle. VIP guests were gifted with swag bags, including wine and cigars from the designer’s own vineyard: Copper Cane.
The collection, inspired by a dream Tahitian vacation, included effortless silhouettes. Bright colors in subtle prints created a bold elegance, while solids were soft yet striking. The audience was captivated by the chic plunging one-piece punctuated with a wide brimmed, old Hollywood hat. For the finale, designer Amber Wagner chose a black two-piece suit with flirty, strappy detailing. The female models, including Rachel Barnes, shimmied down the runway in the 2015 collection wearing simple ankle-strap stilettos and minimal statement jewelry; while the male models, met with a barrage of whistles, went shirtless and barefoot.
Mia Marcelle designer Amber Wagner, along with her husband Joe Wagner, added some spice to their Napa Valley winery by making it the headquarters for their burgeoning swimwear line. Drawing inspiration from the beauty of confident women, the mother of six chose to chase her dream of fashion by diving head first into the swim world. Her pieces breathe femininity and sensuality, incorporating both elegance and minimalism.
