Day 3 of Mercedes-Benz Swim Week took a spiritual odyssey deep into the jungles of Africa and the Amazon with Mara Hoffman Swim, followed with a romp in Rio with Poko Pano's playful swimwear, and a trip back to hippier times with True Religion's '70s-inspired suits. Aqua di Lara and Qiss Qiss brought a little '90s flair.

Here's a recap of some of the top looks from the evening.

Mother Nature and magic hit the runway at Mara Hoffman. Models were transformed into tribeswomen of all sorts from African priestesses to Amazon goddesses in feathers, loose fishtail braids, face paint, and jeweled headdresses.

Swimwear ranged from neon pink, mint, and highlighter yellow, often mottled together on geometric patterns or splattered on like paint. Lots of suits and resort wear featured intricate lattice, diamond shapes, and giant, mystical all-seeing blue eyes. Ethereal, flowy cover-ups and hooded caftans moved dreamily across the runway.

The allure of Rio de Janeiro was echoed in Poko Pano's festive and fun collection. Mixing mismatching prints and patterns was designer Paola Robba's forte. Watermelon-print bottoms were complemented by striped tops, while Cupid seemed to have spread the love on some very Valentine's Day-looking swimwear that featured an explosion of hearts.

They say every woman loves flowers, and if they don't, they'll catch floral fever from the Brazilian line's pastel pink gingham looks adorned with budding pink cartoonlike daisies.

At True Religion, the message was peace, love, and happiness as models stepped out as if they were at Woodstock. Barefoot in beaded bracelets, dream-catcher pendants, scarves, and fringe, it was clear as Jim Morrison blared that hippie chic and boho flair still hadn't lost their edge. Neon boy shorts, denim-looking suits accented with leather and fringed bags, and leopard-print vests took us on a trip.

Reyhan Sofraci's Aqua Di Lara and Qiss Qiss were featured back to back. While Sofraci's Aqua Di Lara set a serious and sophisticated tone with earthy hues and metallic shades, Qiss Qiss came out to play. Delicate laces, bows, and retro '90s looks made waves. The crowd's favorite seemed to be the aqua monokini glamorized with a hot-pink flamingo.
