You know, for all of the unnaturally endowed women and over-the-top homerun fountains this city has, when real style arrives in Miami, it looks g-o-o-d. Like, girls with Latina/urban/bohemian influences sitting beachside good. Like, strolling down Collins with your best guy good. Like, the crocheted and pastel-hued Free People summer musts we've been fairly in love with for most of our adult lives good.
So we love this "day-in-the-life" glimpse of Miami that the Free People May catalogue has featured, which seems to start during an afternoon by the water and evolves into a girls' night on the town. And the 305 homage is not-so-subtle, with a model wearing an "I Heart South Beach" trucker hat (no, they're not back) and two gals perched next to a peach-colored convertible outside of Avalon. While there is certainly an element of hot pink, retro-fueled '80s extravagance for which our city has become synonymous, Free People's spread has a very now-feeling spin, especially with the maxi dresses and woven wedges. Is Miami having a possible fashion capital renaissance? (We say: Um, duh.)
