Style Saves

The eighth annual Swim Week edition of the showcase features looks from Eberjey and Onia, all while raising funds for Style Saves—a charity that strives to provide school children with basic necessities, from uniforms to pencils to eyeglasses. Model and influencer Jenny Lopez hosts the fashionable fundraiser, featuring drinks courtesy of Tito’s Vodka and Whispering Angel.

Cesta Collective x Mrs. Mandolin Pop-Up

If you’ve been thinking about dabbling in prairie-core—the trend whose trademarks include ruffled sleeves and wicker basket purses—here’s a safer way to attempt one of this summer’s weirder looks. This first-time collab brings together New York City-based handbag label Cesta, known for its handmade woven baskets made by Rwandan artisans, and Mrs. Mandolin, the Design District’s boho lifestyle boutique. Open as part of Miami Swim Week, the pop-up kicks off with a cocktail party on Friday from 6 to 9pm, featuring a meet-and-greet with Cesta’s designers, and sticks around through the weekend.

WILDFOX x Delano Hotel

What happens when sexy swimwear brand WILDFOX takes over one of South Beach’s hottest hotels for Swim Week? Four days of pool parties, late-night shenanigans, brunch and more. Pop into the Delano on Friday and Saturday at 10am for free yoga, stay till 1pm for a poolside bash and, if you can hang, head to Doheny Room at 10pm to party until, well, late. Rock your pajamas to brunch on Sunday at 1am and, in between, browse WILDFOX’s 2018 resort collection, “Alice in Miami,” packed with summer essentials. RSVP is required but all events are free to attend.

Bastille Day Soirée at La Côte

France is having the biggest weekend ever. Though before the national team competes in Sunday’s FIFA World Cup final, the country is spending all day Saturday commemorating Bastille Day. La fête nationale kicks off early at 11am at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s poolside rooftop restaurant. Head upstairs for free tastings of Moet & Chandon Champagne, live music and plenty of celebrating.

Overtown Music and Arts Festival

The annual Overtown Music and Arts Festival, produced by Headliner Market Group, brings in all sorts of Grammy Award-winning talent for its latest edition, which takes over Overtown’s Business District all day Saturday. Expect performances by Ginuwine, Musiq Soulchild, Vivian Green, Estelle and Jon B., among many others. Local shops, restaurants and galleries open throughout the day, plus there will be food trucks and a Youth Zone for kids of all ages to participate in making crafts, face painting and fitness activities. At NW Second and NW Third Aves between 8th and 10th Sts.

Canine Film Festival

You’ve heard of the Festival de Cannes, now try the way cooler Festival des Canines! Bring your pooch to the movies for a day of fun and activities at Cinepolis in Coconut Grove, including a red carpet, fashion show and awards ceremony. What doggy celebrities will appear on the silver screen?

Markets for Makers

Are you looking for something you didn’t know you were looking for? Something that’ll sit in your home and make it look good? The Miami Market for Makers may have just the thing, whether that be a fashionable new scarf, a deliciously scented candle or a new rug that really pulls the room together.

Boatsetter Summer Splash

Boatsetter, the company that bills itself as the Airbnb of boats, throws a free bash at the Haulover Sandbar on Saturday. There’ll be all sorts of watercrafts to try for those who don’t have one of their own (most of us, let’s be honest), plus music and tons of giveaways.

Lazy Sunday BBQ: Swim Week Edition

No need to sneak into the Standard Spa pool this weekend. Everyone’s favorite Sunday hang returns for a special Swim Week edition, hosted by Chromat and female collective (F)empower. The Asian-themed ’cue features vermicelli rice bowls and tropical cocktails, plus tunes by Michelle Leshem and Loka.

Coterie Pop-Up Shop at Faena Bazaar

What the Museum of Ice Cream was to foodies and kiddos, Coterie is to the fashion set: an eight-day, immersive style pop-up filled with designer clothing, of-the-moment accessories and—most importantly—plenty of Instagrammable moments. Once you’re through giving your followers a major dose of FOMO (which may not be the case since the pop-up is free and open to everyone), shop more than 30 luxury and ready-to-wear labels such as CDFA designer Chromat plus 16 brands hand-picked by the folks behind Cartagena’s ultra cool concept shop St.DOM—all of which are brand new to the U.S. Beauty, home goods and other wares are also on tap at Coterie.
