LILIANNA MONTOYA “I love sewing and have passion for every single piece I create either by hand or by just trimming and adding textures and colors.” Liliana Montoya

C

olombian designer Liliana Montoya took the swimwear world to a whole new level in 2006 when she introduced her Montoya Swimwear line. The influence of Latin

American fashion and culture is pervasive through the entire collection. Her feminine, upscale swimwear showcases the beauty of today’s modern woman.  Montoya’s ultrasexy bikinis and trikinis feature luxurious details in shape, texture, and color, and her fabulous prints are adorned with sequined borders, stones and Swarovski crystals. Each suit is completed with the signature Montoya Gold Heart.  Montoya’s interest in fashion dates back to childhood when she spent time watching fashion TV and runway shows, and developed a desire to one day live in that world. As she was finishing fashion design school, she created a beachwear line for her final thesis and knew immediately it would become her ultimate passion.  Montoya shares, “I love sewing and have passion for every single piece I create either by hand or by just trimming and adding textures and colors.”  Each day she looks forward to letting her senses flow with creativity and exploring new ideas and concepts. Montoya credits the support of her “team” as her driving force, stating, “I cannot do it without them. I have the inspiration and the desire to create but without the friends and family that support me, I couldn’t do it.  My ‘mermaids’ are a daily motivation to become a better and stronger designer.”

AQUAVITA RESORT WEAR If you’re in the market for affordable swimwear that is as beautiful as it is perfectly fitted, AquaVita Swim is your best bet. This classic line of swimwear was created in 2009 when its founders noticed women were spending too much money on swimwear in New York City. They decided then and there that swimwear and resort wear should be both beautiful and affordable. The designers at AquaVita Swim know that women are beautiful in all shapes and sizes. Their colorful swimwear designs come in a variety of cuts and styles to flatter all women’s bodies so they can feel classy and comfortable lounging poolside, swimming in the ocean, or dancing on a cruise ship. These empowering swimsuits, tops, and dresses look like they came straight off of the runway at the latest fashion show. In fact, many of AquaVita Swim pieces recently made their way across the catwalk at the International Swim Fashion Week in Curaçao at the Papagayo Beach Club in March. During the event, AquaVita displayed their timeless looks. The resort wear line included flowing skirts, tops, and dresses in the colors inspired by the beach; each designed to make women look spectacular in any setting. Swimwear and resort wear were styled with anklets, high-heeled sandals, statement necklaces, and straw tote bags.

Instead of Brazilian bottoms and barely-there strings, AquaVita designed their pieces for women who like to look beach-fabulous without revealing too much. Their one-piece designs feature figure-flattering wraps and straps to keep everything in place. Their tankinis are carefully cut to expose just the right amount of skin, while flattering the bust and bottom. Their bikinis are cut to lift and accentuate. Many of the suits come with golden accents or jewels in strategically placed locations. These luxurious suits look expensive, but are affordably priced between $49 and $89. AquaVita Swimwear is truly geared towards every woman. As AquaVita Swimwear looks to the future, they are working to expand their resort wear collection. The designers plan to include more sizing options to allow more women to look beautiful and be comfortable no matter their size. They also seek to expand the company into overseas markets to become a recognizable, yet exclusive, brand and a global leader online and in brickand-mortar marketplaces.

In 2014, after more than two decades in the fashion industry, Poemä Swim was launched by Pamela and her daughter Morea in Southern Florida. The two work seamlessly together to design beautiful and functional swimwear and resort collections. The goal is simple: encourage women to be true to themselves and feel confident and beautiful. Each piece of swimwear is inspired by stunning beaches and eclectic cultures from around the world, and are designed with intention and care. The brand’s namesake, Poemä, means “the pearl of the deep sea,” and represents the fine and delicate nature of the Poemä Swim collections. Like life, pearls are delicate, beautiful, and a bit mysterious. Pamela and Morea created Poemä Swim to reflect the beauty of life and their surroundings. Inspired by classic styles, unique details, earth tones, and exotic prints, Poemä Swim is perfect for fashion forward women everywhere. New for 2017 is the Enigma collection, inspired by beautiful and exotic beaches in Peru. Pamela notes, “the enigmatic elements created by nature enhance a woman’s sense of empowerment, intensifying their natural beauty and sensuality.” The Enigma collection uses fine fabrics from Spain and Italy, and features earthtones, nudes, and shades of rust and green to create feminine, sensual, and classic pieces. 92

Highlights of the Enigma Collection include the Estefania Bottom, a swimsuit bottom with criss-cross and knotted details, minimal back coverage, and the Poemä signature gold plate. The Tahiti Top, another popular piece, features bold, strappy detailing on the chest and neck that is both comfortable and flattering. Of course, the collection is not without classic pieces such as the Kiss Kiss Bottom, a “basic” swimsuit bottom with minimal back coverage and a seamless design. Plus, mixing and matching has never been easier with reversible swimwear pieces, making the entire Enigma Collection incredibly versatile. Pamela and Morea have created Poemä Swimwear to inspire women to feel beautiful and empowered. Their gorgeous designs, custom fit, and classic style are the perfect pieces for beach bathers, travel enthusiasts, and trendsetters alike.

Beach Hotel at Papagayo The Beach Hotel is designed with a striking modern style that shines against the perfectly manicured grass. Clean lines inside and out emphasize the beauty of the Caribbean Sea. The hotel interior and exterior feature clean white lines, linens, and furniture. Its minimal design truly allows guests to relax in a transcendent environment. The hotel features a private infinity pool that overlooks the Caribbean and is only accessible to the hotel guests. Surrounded by the privacy of inviting lounge chairs, the pool is a short walk from the hotel, but the intimate setting is worth the stroll. While relaxing at the pool, guests can book reservations for water activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, sailing, and other water sports.

The Beach Club If the luxurious rooms, exquisite food, and beautiful

surroundings are not enough, the Papagayo Beach Hotel is also home to the Papagayo Beach Club. This trendy spot in Curaçao features white sandy beaches punctuated by an infinity pool that appears to flow directly into the sea. On weekends, this relaxation hub seamlessly shifts into a nightclub with live music and entertainment. It is the perfect place in Curaçao for relaxation and play time. Don’t be fooled however, the best part of the Papagayo Beach Hotel is the view. Throughout the hotel, the Caribbean Sea can be seen from nearly every room through plentiful windows and glass doors. By keeping the interior design minimal, there are no distractions to the outside environment.

O

ne of the fashion industry’s pre-eminent luxury swimwear designers, Gabriela Pires was ‘born’ into this business. Before taking her first breath, Gabriela was already purchasing clothing fabrics in Rio de Janeiro while

still in her mother’s womb In between her first moments on earth until now, Gabriela has followed the fashion industry around all life’s corners. After moving to Miami at an early age, Gabriela then headed to Italy to study fashion at the Istituto Marangoni of Milan. She then took her talents to the fashion capitol of the world, New York City, starring in her first New York City Fashion Week at the age of 21. In 2009, Gabriela opened her first New York City-based swimwear showroom on Broadway, followed-up by her guest-designing her very own line for the renowned Opera Swimwear in 2010. Adding another vertical to her already astounding repertoire, Gabriela debuted her lingerie designs via her very own brand, The Panty Box, in 2012. At this same time, she opened a brick-and-mortar boutique for the line in the NoLita district of Manhattan. Following years of dedication and determination in launching her illustrious Gabriela Pires Beachwearluxury swimwear line, the brand was first featured in the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimwear Edition, the Super Bowl of all swimwear showcases. To ensure her staying power, Gabriela has followed this up with two features since. Tking her God-given Brazilian roots and combining them with a generation’s worth of experience in the fashion industry, Gabriela has developed Gabriela Pires Beachwear into a force to be reckoned with. From styles and cuts to fit all shapes and sizes, Gabriela Pires Beachwear dares you to show-off on your next beach excursion. And the best part of all:Gabriela ensures each piece of swimwear is crafted with the same careful, motherly touch that sifted through the various clothing fabrics with her in her youngest days in Rio de Janeiro.
