WE ARE HANDSOME

Jeremy and Katinka Somers are the designers behind this Australian label. Prints included hummingbirds intertwined with pineapples in a kaleidoscope grid; mirrored cheetahs in red and blue; the brand’s signature big cat print; and maps, sails and palm trees reflecting the designers’ travel lifestyle. A cropped rash guard in bright yellow sported a tropical print on the back, racer bikinis and leggings paired with mesh tops.  Bikini-clad models even held a live slithering snake. Male models sported trunks in prints.

TORY BURCH

The Tory Burch swimwear was inspired by the sun-bleached palette of Milton Avery, an American modern painter. Laidback looks included surf shirts, dresses and tunics, and button-down shirts that can be worn over bathing suits. A short-sleeved rash guard included a floral print called “Red Pepper Issy” with short ruffles along the collar. Accessories included oversized marbled sunglasses and perforated leather shoes. Fan favorite: A white leather bag with long fringe.

MIKOH

Inspired by the travels of sisters Kalani and Oleema Miller, MIKOH opened with Tahitian dancers wearing custom pieces from the surf collection made from coated neoprene. There were sleek designs (neoprene maillot with a halter-style top) and new prints (crashing white water, palm trees, a Samoan print) and colors (rich greens and reds, coral, turquoise and neutrals). Bikinis were paired with multi-string and laser-cut bottoms.
