Agua Bendita and Dolores Cortés at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim: Punks in the Jungle

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim

Day 2: July 19, 2013

1775 Collins Ave., Miami Beach

Day two of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim started off with a bang -- albeit a delayed one. All shows ran half an hour behind at least, and we can't help but think it had something to do with poor organization skills. But hey, the sun was finally out, the heat was scorching, and while media and attendees try to find new and interesting ways to combat sweat-inducing high temperatures while still maintaining photo ready, we're here to report on the latest trends from the swim runways.

Newsflash: If last night's shows are any indication, punk is in, studs are on everything, and snakeskin is making a comeback in the pastel variety. Walk with attitude and strut your stuff; [almost] anything goes.
