Proud to rep the 3-0-5 and all things that make up Miami: Colorful palms and gardens, the infinite green you see when you when you are in a mid or high rise building, the endless honking and traffic at any, yes, ANY time of day. To the crispy croquettas, & all the long and short haired haired goddesses, young & old, that flaunt what their mommas gave them and feel the unspoken social bond, dress code, and need to wear heels when they go out, because let's face it, that's typical of THE MIA. 

Let's start our design process guide with what inspired the whole collection to begin with... colors & prints!

Meet & Greet: Print Edition

     Miami's iconic Ocean Drive is vibrant and colorful. The road lends itself to different streets that divide themselves up to different age and social groups, hotels, bars, condominiums, private & public beaches, & our very colorful Miami personalities; the old man in the neon green high waisted speedo, the queens of The Palace lipsyncing and stopping traffic as they perform their routines, the music lovers and brunchers of Nikki Beach, The Surfcomber, Fat Tuesdays, endless club promoters, & the excited tourist taking their epic mermaid beach pics for the gram.

     Take a stroll or a drive, but you won't deny the white sandy beaches, beautiful Miami Blue waters, and of course the hustle & bustle that is Miami Beach! Below you'll see our Mela Leo & Zoey Top in our new Ocean Drive print; totally Miami & that's just how we LOVE it!

    You can't always appreciate it from ground level, but get on up 4 stories or higher and Miami is a sea of green! Palms E V E R Y W H E R E! Not to mention our epic red, purple, & pink sunrise & sunsets! 

     This is what inspired our Pink Palms print! A combination of two of our favorite colors; red & peach to an abstract palm design! Very representative our our fiery personalities found throughout the city & it's natural beauty!

   Plus these colors look great on any skin tone! So for all of you who live in that golden tan & the beautiful shades of chocolate; dark, milk, & white, these color combinations will look phenomenal on you during any season!
