Miami Nice

Planet Botkier June 28, 2011

Aimee Song of Song of Style and Monica Botkier trooped on down to Miami last week to hang out for an inspiration tour as part of the 2011 Vogue Eyewear  CFDA City Collection project. Botkier will be introducing our first ever sunglass design in October 2011 which will be sold at Sunglass Huts everywhere! In particular we were thrilled to see how Aimee Song took our accessories: eyewear and bags, in our inspirational city of Miami and in turn inspired us with her styling. See her looks below and for more info and Aimee’s take on the trip go to

On South Beach with our Eden small satchel in multi-color, Holiday Resort 2011.

South Beach in the afternoon, Aimee is rocking out with color! We love this look, she is wearing the Misha clutch in red, Holiday Resort 2011.

Aimee and Monica keeping cool in the shade of the palms on South Beach. Monica is wearing dear friend and fave designer Tucker polka dot wrap dress.

Behind the scenes of the shoot, notice the tattooed forearm of the photo assistant camera right. That breeze felt good but the reflection board was pure torture shooting silver hard light right into our eyes (yes on purpose! suffer for beauty even on film)

Joe’s Stone Crab, definitely a highlight of the shoot. We had to eat their yummy specialty of Stone Crabs over and over and over again! Then they bought out the hash browns and we were ready for a nap!!

The beautiful Aimee Song towards the end of the shoot outside The Webster, talk about inspiring – fashion, food, architecture, books. Our kind of one stop shop! After shooting for 12 hours in the heat we were beyond thrilled to take it all in. Amazing can’t wait to go back!

Emily Blunt’s role in The Devil Wears Prada afforded her a super luxe wardrobe, and off the screen she is equally stylish. Her day to day look is classically cool, choosing blacks, whites and solids instead of busy prints. The look is anything but basic, Emily adds a modern edgy factor by accessorizing with a pop of color.  Whether it’s electric red flats or her Jackie Hobo in pewter snake, she’s always looking effortlessly chic.
