Ultra creative Libby Desantis of Indah brings us her interpretation of the 60s with her new collection Magic Carpet Ride. The collection captures the allure of Indonesian beauty and the bohemian meets vintage vibe Indah is known for in new colours and creative prints.
All of Indah beachwear is hand made with every step of the process from screening to painting and dying to knitting for luxurious results.

Definitely a top pick of Miami Swim Week 2017, Hot-As-Hell celebrated individuality and unconventionalism with their collection Paradis Trouvé (Paradise Found). The show featured women of all ages and shapes, pregnant mamas and kiddos too, taking the audience on a journey through “paradise found” with lyrical dance performance.
Paradis Trouvé reflected the brand’s roots in natural, ethical apparel for women in an array of natural tones contrasted with lacy pieces and corsets.

Highlights include a high-waisted corset bikini with suspenders, ultra high-cut one pieces, and very hot machine-wash lace body suits. Find them on Instagram @we_are_hah
