Tibi swimsuits displayed brightly at the Mercedes-Benze Fashion Week Swim in Miami Beach. Along with the bright colors were bold prints and attention getting contrasts. Tibi's designer Amy Smilovic returned to original printes first showed in Indonesia. She enlarged the prints and put them in unexpected places of the bathing suits. She was looking for something that didn't repeat patterns seen on most swimwear she said.

Flowers and vibrant colors are strewn throughout the collection. For example, a purple and pink flower looks like it's scattered on an orange bikini, so that half of the petals are visible in one area.

A strapless bikini top made of orange, purple and white was shown with matching boy-shorts bottoms. A turquoise tunic is decorated with a shapes that look like waves.
