La Perla for the pool

Here’s to taking a clothing trend of 2011 and applying to swimwear, merging it with 2011′s bikini trends to stunning effect: thank you, La Perla. Skirted swimsuits can often go so wrong, but this one, incorporating the high slit we’re currently loving so much, doesn’t fail on any level. This is pool side glamour that both covers up and reveals, that’s both sporty and glamorous.

Elsewhere in Jean Paul Gaultier’s collection for the label you’ll find other flattering shapes like draping cowl necks and bikinis with plenty of ruching and gathering in the right places.

I need not even have to mention that the lingerie component of the collection is more than worth a look, stunningly detailed and unique as you would expect, you can view more from Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla‘s 2011 swimwear & lingerie collection by clicking on the thumbnails.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
