Laurie Nouchka Miami Swim Week FW19
Commissioned to make site-responsive pieces, designer Laurie Nouchka immerses herself in the architecture of Miami Beach and creates limited-edition artwork on fabrics, clothing and client-specific products.
During her residency at Soho Beach House in December 2017, Laurie immersed herself in the architecture, design and atmosphere of Miami Beach, taking inspiration from the iconic Art Deco heritage and the contemporary juxtaposition of much of the architecture that has grown around it to tell an architectural story.

The artwork created by her time at Soho Beach House has been translated onto Laurie’s iconic wearable collections. Unique features of Soho Beach House included in the collection are the tiles, the pool, and the surrounding gardens as well as neighbor, Miami City Ballet. The wearable art pieces are translated into leggings, tops and even swimsuits that are designed to provide form and function.
