"Beach Bunny is always striving to top ourselves with this show, and I feel that collaborating with The Blonds is the perfect way to bring something completely unique for the 10th anniversary of Swim week.” -Beach Bunny CEO Angela Chittenden
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) July 02, 2014
Beach Bunny, the iconic American swimwear label known for its luxury fashion-forward designs, announces its return to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim with a jaw-dropping collaboration as it teams up with celebrity-coveted design duo, The Blonds. Together, Beach Bunny and The Blonds will produce a phenomenal show never before seen on the swimwear runways. Beach Bunny’s 2015 presentation will bring the heat to Miami Beach on July 18th, creating media frenzy with fashion’s hottest supermodels, Hailey Clauson and Samantha Hoopes, who are making their debuts on the swimwear catwalk.
Miami Swim Week hotshot, Beach Bunny, and NY Fashion Week favorites, The Blonds, will join forces for a sensational production that will feature a variety of striking Beach Bunny bikinis amped up to extreme by The Blonds lavishly embellished styling and creative direction.
“It was definitely love at first sight with Beach Bunny, the details, the craftsmanship, the embellishments!! Angela Chittenden is a visionary, and truly understands the modern women,” says David Blond of the platinum design duo.
Beach Bunny CEO, Angela Chittenden shares a similar admiration for the dazzling designers. “I attended The Blonds’ show at New York Fashion Week and was blown away by their creativity and the playful energy they bring to the runway,” says Chittenden. “They are such exceptionally imaginative designers and I love that they aren’t afraid to take risks. Beach Bunny is always striving to top ourselves with this show, and I feel that collaborating with The Blonds is the perfect way to bring something completely unique for the 10th anniversary of Swim week.”
In addition to being the creative geniuses behind the elaborate costumes on Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter Show World Tour and Miley Cyrus’ out of this world Bangerz tour, The Blonds have created scintillating gem-encrusted bodysuits and crystal corsets for the biggest names in the entertainment business, including Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, and Kim Kardashian. Known for their impressive collaborations, The Blonds enter the realm of swimwear for the first time with Beach Bunny.
“The Beach Bunny aesthetic has that perfect blend of sophistication, strength and sensuality with a twist,” says Phillipe Blond. “Every woman has a little bombshell just waiting to get out and Beach Bunny is the answer. The Blonds are thrilled to be celebrating the 10th anniversary of Swim Week with Beach Bunny and this will be one show you won't want to miss.”
For this year’s show, Beach Bunny has teamed with VO|CO®, the world’s first premixed Coconut Water and Vodka Cocktail, as the presenting sponsor of its 2015 collection. VO|CO will fuel Miami’s vibrant nightlife and beach scene with its launch in Southern Florida during Fashion Week.
Supermodel bombshell, Hailey Clauson, will add to the sizzle on the runway, opening the show in Beach Bunny and The Blonds’ super sexy designs. Clauson captured Beach Bunny’s heart after shooting its 2014 summer campaign. She continues as the face of the brand throughout the 2015 season. Clauson, who makes her debut at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim with Beach Bunny, has starred on the catwalks of New York and Paris Fashion Week since the age of 14 for high-end designers such as Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Oscar De La Renta, Christian Dior, and Diane Von Furstenberg.
Beach Bunny model and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit superstar, Samantha Hoopes, will join Clauson down the catwalk and will also be making her first appearance on the Miami runway. Talent scouts at Beach Bunny knew instantly after seeing Samantha Hoopes in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit issue that they had a star on their hands. She has since modeled for the swimwear line as well as the brand’s lingerie label, Love Haus.
The show is backed with an all-star beauty team to put the finishing touches on the runway looks. TRESemmé®, the #1 styling brand in the U.S. and the official hair care sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, will create sexy, salon-gorgeous hairstyles with TRESemmé Stylist Tyler Laswell leading the team. For a flawless finish, official makeup sponsor, Per-fékt Beauty®, tops the show off with their ultra-feminine aesthetic and impeccable makeup technique.
Beach Bunny’s runway show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim takes place Friday, July 18th at 10 pm inside the Cabaña Grande at Miami Beach's historic hotel, The Raleigh. The brand’s 2015 collection launches online at BeachBunny.com and hits retail floors starting in September 2014. Price points range between $150 and $360 for its signature pieces.
