The Coral Castle – a South Miami-Dade sculpture garden carved out of coral by one man from 1923 to 1951 – is one of South Florida’s most unique landmarks. We went there to get some truly Floridian fashion inspiration.

Runway fashion we can actually afford

While fashion trends may change from season to season, fashion collaborations aren’t going out of style anytime soon. Don’t believe us? Just look at the news of Forever 21 teaming up with PONY, Reebok collaborating with ASOS, and an L.K. Bennett x Preen capsule collection launching, all announced in only the last 24 hours. Just when we think there are no more dynamic individuals left who can pair up, we learn about yet another collaboration we didn’t think we needed but now can’t imagine living without. With New York Fashion Week being an inspiration playground for fashion creatives, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that so many designers partner up during this time on capsule collaborations, ranging from accessories to full fashion lines, that create as much buzz as everything else coming down the runways.

So while New York Fashion Week may have wrapped up, the dust surrounding some of the highlight moments hasn’t settled. Ahead, the eight best fashion collaborations that debuted on the NYFW runways. Bonus: Some of them are even available to shop now.

Nomia x Absurda
For its 10-year anniversary, the ultra-cool NYC-based womenswear label Nomia cast real women off Instagram as models to embody its ethos and brought back staples from the past decade. In addition to the sleek separates and versatile dresses, the collection included a limited-edition collaboration with Absurda, an impossibly cool South American eyewear brand, featuring two of its best-selling sunglasses styles in exclusive new lens colors meant to complement the collection.

Thanks to fun and slightly unusual frame styles and lens colors, Absurda has quickly become hot in its homeland, and the rest of South America as well — especially with fashion-forward artists and influencers. Now, you too can tap into Rio’s exuberant sense of spirit, even if you can’t actually sip a caipirinha on the beach because Absurda is now in (North) America.

While the company is squarely Brazilian, their focus is international. Their sunglasses are made in various spots, from Brazil to Italy to South Korea, and many of Absurda’s frame styles are named after and inspired by, locales as far flung as a neighborhood in Brooklyn and a famous downtown area in Buenos Aires.

It’s hard to pick just one favorite out of the 21 choices Absurda offers in men’s sunglasses styles (not including color choices). Amazon offers a wide range of the company’s frame and color selections and there are even more on Absurda’s website.

We like the Davis ($165), named for the hip Somerville, Massachusetts neighborhood Davis Square. These stylish shades are a mash-up between wire frames and acetate and feature a keyhole bridge and four color choices (black frames with matte gunmetal and grey with flash silver lenses, black with matte black metal and grey lenses, clear frames with matte blue metal and blue lenses and our absolute fave, the subtle tortoise shell in dark brown with light gold metal and brown lenses shown above). The Davis updates the key bridge frame made famous by Steve McQueen for that perfect balance between classic cool and contemporary style.

We also dig The Born (below, $95), which comes in five wildly different frame options, from black to tortoise shell — perfect for autumn — to a summer-y, brilliant sky blue.

 

We love Wayfarers as much as the next guy, but it’s high time to up your sunglasses game and now you do it with some international flavor.

Miami arrived on the art scene in 2002 when Art Basel, the world’s premier contemporary art fair decided to expand its venue. Miami was then selected as a location that would attract North and Latin American participants. By then, contemporary art found a home, and soon after, so did street art: Wynwood Art District

Once a neighborhood of empty warehouses, Wynwood is now known for its colorful murals. Every weekend, thousands of people flock to the area to enjoy the gallery exhibits, street musicians, and Miami’s famous food trucks.
