July is typically the most sun-strewn month of the year, and escape is traditionally what one does in the Magic City. Unless, of course, it is…Swim Week, and the rest of the world is headed here.

Miami Swim Week brought them all out and Miami’s fashion elite navigated the summer in their usual fabulous, glam eclectic style.

The summer soirees included the outstanding kick-off for Swim Week at the Bagatelle Restaurant hosted by Celebrity Page TV; the haute reception at Louis Vuitton, the adored shopping hotspot in Miami Design District; the fave swimwear brand Ondademar sexy showing at East Miami and the brunch bashes at Soho House for Niin Jewelry (in from Hong Kong) and Formes Swimwear (Brigitte Bardot inspired for every woman!); Sundays on the rooftop at The Webster.
