Backstage At Vix Paula Hermanny Spring 2014 Show 4


What goes into creating the perfect beach look for every woman? “Think about it just like you would when you go out. I think of every piece that goes into it, and putting every part of the puzzle together,” says Paula Hermanny, founder and designer of Vix, a maker of high-end swimwear and accessories (WSJ, 2013). Filled with items that create the perfect beach look according to Paula Hermanny, the atmosphere in the backstage area of the Vix, Paula Hermanny 2014 Spring Collection Show was electric. The models buzzed with excitement as they played dress up with the simple accessories Paula provided for the collection. As a mother and a lover of the beach, Paula Hermanny designed the collection with versatility in mind. The collection includes the sexy, triangle bikini for hot date nights away from the kids, functional, but chic suits for a fun day at the beach with the kids, as well as stylish and street ready cover-alls, for women who prefer to stay covered up.


This season Paula focused on the details of the swimwear in the collection stating, “A flash of gold at the halter or at the hips can almost have the same effect as wearing a piece of jewelry”. (WSJ, 2013) Paula does not recommend jewelry as part of a beach ensemble and strongly expressed that the metals in the accessories, should match the metals in the swimwear. Suits with strong detail, prevent the need for extravagant accessories, and allow for the minimalist approach Paula favors. Paula chooses fabulous, Jackie-O style, straw beach hats to pair with her suits, creating a sophisticated look, especially with the full suits of the collection. The hats serve two purposes, fashion and protection from the sun, as Paula is avid about sun safety. The cover-alls of the collection, created to be mismatched, expresses Paula’s love for contrasting colors against her suits. You could go as far as calling the backstage experience of the Vix Paula Hermanny 2014 Spring Collection Show at the Miami Swim Fashion Week, the great experiment. The models enjoyed the exploration of choosing the perfect accessories for their suits just as much as you will. [ Photo source: Fashion TV]
