As the Summer (for most of us) comes to a close and we seep in to Fall, we take a look back at the Mercedes Miami Swim Fashion Week back in July. Noticeable neon Indian inspired Tribal Trends are seeping in to the 2012 RTW ("Ready To Wear") collections.
"From Fierce animal prints to safari suiting, spring is swinging to a tribal beat..." - Vogue.com
COLOURlovers themselves seem to be trending amongst pattern and palette designs. Take a look for yourself...

Mara Hoffman collaged complex patterns and playful color combinations, using cooler hues like ostrich feather green and sky blue as a base to feature rays of fluorescent warmer oranges, yellows, and pinks. Showing a flair for Egyptian patterns and colors, Hoffman cites her husband Javier Piñón’s last collection O Babalon as an influence for her tribal trend.
Heavily saturated eye-popping brights are set to bleed into the next season, after being mastered this spring by fashion veterans from Haider Ackermann to Jill Sander, and Rachel Roy. Red Carter used blocks of electric blue, lime green and flaming coral to create strong futuristic swimwear bound to turn heads.
On the other end of the color saturation spectrum, soft watercolors and bleeding patterns created a rainbow connection. Aqua Di Lara stayed true to its feminine style by evoking galaxy gazing, with midnight blues as a backdrop for whirls of soft pinks, mellow yellows and dewy greens.
Softer pastel prints were also channeled by White Sands Australia in Australian bushland inspired colors of soft olive, sweet peach and pale wattle yellow. L*Space, Caffe Swimwear and A.Che also proved that pretty pops of posies on a light canvas are eternally classic.
Regardless of your penchant for neon or pastels, next Summer is set to sizzle with these colorful new trends.
