Le Midi by Amber Watkins at Lobby Nightclub

The word “Luxe” pretty much summed up the Ottawa based designer Amber Watkins’ latest swimwear collection, Le Midi, which was showcased at Lobby Nightclub over the weekend.

Le Midi was inspired by lavish vacation spots in the south of France. When Amber was designing the line, she imagined this collection to be worn boutique shopping in St. Tropez or tanning on a yacht while sipping wine with a handsome, dark hair French guy. Okay, I made up the “handsome French guy” part. But from watching the show I definitely imagined myself wearing one of those pieces on a yacht and with a foreign hunk.

The materials used for the collection oozed luxury through their rich textures and sumptuous fabrics. Each look was carefully put together from the model’s hair style down to the smallest accessory that was worn. There is no doubt that these pieces will make heads turn when you wear them out.











Here are some backstage photos of the models getting ready. Hair done by Hair Junkie located on 200 Laurier Avenue West.






And of course, some other photos throughout the night. Everyone had a great time.

  4. I love your event coverage post! You're lucky that you get to be a part of all the behind-the-scenes action! The swimsuits are GORGEOUS!! I could totally see myself sunning on a yacht with one of these babies! Then again...I have an active imagination ;o) I won't be sailing anytime soon, nor squeezing into one of these numbers until I lose another 20 lbs!

  12. That's so neat that you got to see a second swimwear show in just a matter of two weeks (not even?). And you look beautiful in that picture!
    I'm not sure about the metallic finish on many of the swimsuits - I'm sure many other ladies can pull it off but it reminds me of clubwear! LOL
    But you know which one I really like? I love that nude coloured stripped one. I want a nude coloured fabric swimsuit like that - been looking everywhere!

  13. Foreign hunks (with yachts) everywhere just had big, silly grins spread over their faces. =)

    So, not an athlete. I'm a little surprised, you appear to have the confidence that comes with excellent coordination.

  14. beautiful swimsuits, I know I wouldn't be able to pull that off. It's so great that you get to go to all these beautiful interesting events. :)

  15. that gold sun hat is so eye-catching! I like the look of the cream/nude monokini. I think that's a really unique color for swimwear.
    I think you could definitely rock a vera bradley bag. I just don't like the herd of girls who all bought the same/similar things to look like each other. I wouldn't mind owning a VB tote but I've bashed them to the point of no return hahaha
