Canadian based resort label Filthy Haanz unveiled their 2017 collection last night at SWIMMIAMI at the WET Deck. The gorgeous runway set atop the W South Beach’s pool served host to both male and female models in gorgeous rich jewel-tones. Notable for a sophisticated yet raw design philosophy, the brand continues to traverse boundaries.
The brand’s creative director Wilber Tellez was inspired by his travels. For 2017, an apparent Spanish influence made waves through the fabric choice and styling. “The raw sights, sounds, and textures off the streets led me to believe this city, its people and culture, were the epitome of our brand lifestyle.” This season, Wiber described his collection as “mysterious sexy” and that it was. Models strutted in sunglasses Tnemnroda and dainty jewelry by Tracilynn Jewelry.
Vivid jewel tones were complimented by a gold sheen lace and black strappy details. Unexpected teal and maroon color combinations caught the eye of attendees.The women’s category includes monokinis, bikinis, maillots, and wraps, whilst the men’s category includes speedos and trunks complimented with an assortment of essential tops and tanks perfect for poolside. The entire collection will range from $79-$300 CAD.
For three years now Filthy Haanz has delivered a lifestyle of “untamed-sophistication,” driven by a changing consumer landscape. “We’re tapping into a new and exciting market,” says designer Wilber Tellez, “that is driven by young professionals…Filthy Haanz designs for the work-hard- play-hard consumer.”
