Boss joined the growing list of designers showing off-schedule this season and decamped to Miami to absorb the warmth and present a set inspired by the humid city. The likes of Maluma, Demi Lovato, and Emily in Paris star Lucien Laviscount went south for the week to soak up the epic runway, staged on the waterfront Herald Plaza.

The opening run of looks, modeled by none aside from Pamela Anderson and supermodel Anok Yai, set the tone for the splashy show to come back (literally). Models seemed to be walking on water, atop a slick black runway and surrounded by fountains misting water over your entire collection, a lot in order that by the tip of every models’ walk, their outfits were damp, as in the event that they had spent the last several minutes out to sea. Crinkled linen jackets in ecru and tans appeared light as air, complemented by sheer skirts and matching tops to counter the linen.

Boss definitely took cues from the form of Miami, which is by nature breezy to accommodate the stifling humidity and winds that come from the water. Officewear staples in black, white, and tan felt extra bouncy and free, and the classic pinstripe and gray marl suiting found latest life as shift dresses, vests, and workwear skirts. The second half of the show saw models like Grace Elizabeth and Precious Lee in muted, slinky silk-and-mesh dresses that draped just so over the body, embracing a latest sensuality that contrasts well with the standard tailoring we’re used to seeing from the brand.

Everyone from aughts supermodel Omahyra Mota, Japanese superstar Naomi Watanabe, industry veteran Amber Valletta, and even DJ Khaled walked the runway (one other one). Recently-retired stylist Law Roach even made an appearance in a three-piece suit. Naomi Campbell stomped out for the finale in a show-stopping black deconstructed halter-top suit gown—the final word Boss lady look. Although the show pulled the brand into the longer term with a latest give attention to fashion-forward pieces, the timelessness and commitment to honoring its core customer shone through. All it took was jetting to the final word spring break location to unlock a latest level.
