Miami. You don’t have to go there to draw a mental association of roads lined with palm trees, glittering nightlife, and expanses of bright blue water surrounding the city. There may also be an image that springs to mind of tanned skin and pink bikinis, copped tops and rollerskates. Michael David Adams’ shoot Miami Weiss isn’t just a clever play on the name of the ’80s TV show, it’s a clever play on that notion of glamorous beach styling. Against a backdrop of white on blue (weiss is German for white), Don West’s styling clashes swimsuits with furs, bikinis with blanket capes.
Complimented by makeup from Mary Irwin and hair by Gena Sullivan, you can view the full Miami Weiss shoot at the gallery above.
