Colombian beachwear brand Agua Bendita debuted their 2013 swimwear collection on the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Runways at the Miami Swim Shows last week. This season, the Agua Bendita designers Catalina Alvarez and Mariana Hinestroza dedicated the collection to their team of artisans who hand-make each garment. The collection was called "Lovely Heros" and it was inspired by the 700 men and women that collaborate with the two designers each season to create the innovative and ultra-embellished garments that we all love so much.
The hero inspiration is translated into cowboy, military and sailor prints and pieces. The trademark Agua Bendita beading, appliques and embroidery were all there. And to satiate our appetite for trends several pieces in the line incorporate neon and aztec prints.
Here are some of our favorite pieces from the collection:
