Joining the “destination:miami by Coterie” space for the first time is Gapaz Swimwear, who bring their Brazilian born, made in Brazil resort collection of one piece swimsuits, bikinis, and resort wear made up of high quality fabrics, exclusive prints, and strategic cutouts to the U.S.A., stemming from 2 friends and their love for bikinis made just for young and cool girls.
