Who better than Laure Heriard Dubreuil (founder of The Webster), to give us a glimpse of Miami Beach’s fabulous Swim Week 2011? We love her highlights of Swim, including driving the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Force car, the Coveter Shoot at her apartment, her fashion police arrest of Lisa Marie Fernandez, and of course, her favorite pics of Lazy Sunday Swim at The Standard Miami.

On Saturday, Swim Vixen Swim by RANA*ROJO was a huge success and we loved the designs of RANA*ROJO’s resort line for 2012. The Standard Miami’s Lido Lounge was the perfect location for this sexy Swim Show. Born in Katmandu, Nepal, lead designer Ash Rana and Cuban born, fine artist Damian Rojo merged their talents and formed RANA*ROJO in 2008. For this collection, RANA*ROJO created their prints by hand drawing and digitally re-contextualizing their findings ranging from medieval textiles to 60’s wallpaper design. Swim Vixen Swim was inspired by 50’s undergarments, orientalism and 60’s film femme fatales. Each distinctive piece in the collection is hand dyed and screen-printed. Check out the pictures here.

On Saturday night was also Native Swim with DJ Mia Moretti and DJ Tamara Sky. It was so much fun! We even heard one of the DJ’s jumped onto a paddle board with a pair of Natives on! The party was dope as usual with Xavier Burt of Native and Sebastian Puga as hosts of the party. The kicks are perfect for the Miami weather and we loved the Native vibe. Check out the party pics!

This year’s Swim Week Lazy Sunday Party was just the perfect day in paradise. A great collaboration came together with The Standard Miami, The Webster, Gilt City Miami, Ocean Drive Magazine, Havaianas and sponsors Leblon Cachaca and Societe Perrier. Everyone loved making their own Havaianas and taking funny photo booth pictures. The models from The Webster sported all the latest looks as they mingled throughout the crowd. Add to that all the weekly Lazy Sunday goodies including Brazilian BBQ, Ping-Pong, Tetherball, and Paddle boarding. Check out the rest of the pictures here!
