Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim was as white-hot as the famous sands of Miami Beach this season. While all the designers truly brought their one and two-piece A-Game, one designer, in particular, took our breath away.

Described as sophisticated beach chic, glam surfer girl, and most definitely fashion-forward swimwear, L*Space is an award-winning brand, recognized as SIMA’s (Surfwear Industry Manufacturer’s Association) swimwear brand of the year — seven consecutive years. A favorite of celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Kristen Bell, Amy Adams and more, designer Monica Wise’s global travels provide her with endless inspiration. Stars such as Mary J.Blige, Jessica Alba and curvy Kim Kardashian have also donned L’Space in cover shoots for premier publications such as Shape Magazine,Entertainment Weekly and US Weekly, to name a few.

From the beaches of France, Mexico and Bali to all points along the southern California coast — pieces of these faraway places can be seen in her designs. Monica was also named the 2010 Mercedes Benz designer of the year. Always on the go, Monica is a beach girl at heart, happiest returning to her Corona del Mar bungalow by the sea.  The L’Space collection includes gorgeous swimsuits and sumptuous maxi-dresses perfect for idling away the dog days of summer in style.

Here’s a quick peek at some of our favorite looks from L*Space’s runway show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim.
