Official Footwear Sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami Beach, FL through 2015, Ipanema made a splash in its successful first year of the sponsorship trilogy. From July 18th-July 22nd, the Brazilian sandal brand infiltrated The Raleigh, home of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, with an impressive poolside cabana, presence at notable runway shows, such as L*SPACE by Monica Wise, and a cocktail event for an exclusive group of VIP guests.
The brand’s poolside cabana, designed to be a chic beachside living room, functioned as an oasis enjoyed by the event’s guests. Steady foot traffic kept Ipanema’s cabana bustling as guests had their photos taken by a Facebook integrated photo kiosk in front of the illuminated Ipanema beach backdrop, previewed the brand’s 2014 collection and left with a pair of the Limited Edition Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week flip flops in-hand.
Ipanema is a fun, hip and colorful sandal and flip flop collection inspired by one of the most beautiful and famous beaches in the world. Made for the fashion-conscious contemporary woman, the styling is constantly in touch with the latest trends. In addition to the brand’s inherent fashion sense, Ipanema’s products are 100% recyclable and feature unique traits including surrounding prints wrapping around the footbed, anatomic soles offering increased comfort and fit, and enhanced uppers and straps.
