Naked but not

“Oh, it’s meant to be over the top,” we reassure our friends when they look upon a catwalk with bewilderment. So much of the fashion that hits catwalks is described as ‘wearable art’, made only to fill the wardrobes of the likes of Anna Dello Russo. But what happens when a piece really is wearable art? What happens when the echo of Helmut Newton’s voyeuristic…

A bold and beguiling beauty in summer’s latest display

With the aspiring season of warmth moving into the northern hemisphere’s midst it is time to peel away the layering style of colder times and settle into something a little more vibrant. With winter declaring its dominance so persistently in the last few months it almost seems inconsequential not to celebrate the skinlessness and brilliance that comes with summer clothing.

Cintia Dicker wears a bikini for winter

The sun is always shining somewhere. Certainly not where I happen to be writing this from – where the snow insists on falling despite it, theoretically, being spring time – but perhaps in Brazil, from where label Agua de Coco hails. In fact, if you were to judge by this campaign starring adorable redhead Cintia Dicker, the sun is always shining in Brazil. Instent on…

Natalia Vodianova for Etam swimwear

Zimmermann’s spring collection contributes to this desirable predicament. A heavenly white bikini with ruffles that hug the chest like…

Hanna Bloch’s vintage play

Winter ends and we all collectively look forward to one thing during summer: fun in the sun. People flock to the beach to take advantage of the warm weather while others hang out poolside with a drink beside them. Whatever your summer activity may be, if you’re of the fairer sex it will more than likely involve a swimsuit at some point.

We Are Handsome: a desirously enchanted world

We see and experience many things: there are those things that fall by the wayside, neither igniting nor inspiring us. And there are those things of supreme beauty and flawless design. Today I am going to talk about the latter of these two things. Today I will mention the occurrence of elongated elegance, of wisps of colour and texture. I will mention the undeniable presence…

Inspired by their own edgy pieces of lingerie, Bordelle’s first swimwear collection – envisioned for spring 2013 – is all about fusing the flattering retro silhouettes with the tough bondage accents. The 2013 bikinis are ready to set the beach on fire with their slick cuts, alluring silhouettes and overall sophisticated feel. The graphic elements emerge against the sleek and powerful hourglass figures, gently colored in…

Denisa Dvorakova for Zimmermann swim: the pictures

A swimwear label’s job is done if they produce swimwear you’d want to buy. A swimwear campaign‘s job is done if you suddenly find yourself wanting to be on a beach somewhere, wanting to be the model, wanting to live a holiday lifestyle far from the cares of the world. Zimmermann, generally speaking, do a pretty good job of both season after season. You may…
