Donhall & Bell hit the runway at Miami Fashion Week this season, thanks to our friends at 209 Mare.
209 Mare, the luxury beachwear label founded by Gabriel and Federico Uribe in 2016, has largely stayed close to its Cote d’Azur home since its inception. But after showing collections in Saint Tropez and Monte Carlo in previous seasons, the brothers opted for a larger stage this year — jetting across the Atlantic to showcase their wares at Miami Swim Week, one of the biggest industry showcases in the world.
And whilst the focus was, naturally enough, on the label’s signature towelling blazers and tailored trunks, we were delighted to see they’d made space in their luggage for the fruits of their recent collaboration with Donhall & Bell. At the end of the show designer Federico Uribe took his bow in sleek navy velvet slippers, embroidered with 209 Mare’s distinctive crest; a shield stamped with mermaid, anchor cocktail, crab — and the words ‘From Monte Carlo With Love’
