Last spring any mention of scuba was to be taken fairly literally. The trend centred around clinging diving-suit cuts, neon panels, exposed zips and neoprene-gone-luxe. But 2012 is the year of swirling influences of trends, and now it doesn’t matter if it’s Prada’s 50s inspired bodysuits or a floral Cavalli jacket; the neoprene plays second fiddle. It’s all about femininty infused with a sporty sensibility, and the crowning glory of a wet look hairstyle.
Shot by Thomas Cooksey for Flair Italy’s April 2012 issue, nothing makes that fact clearer than this shoot of Ali Stephens. Vittoria Cerciello’s styling mixes it up but still keeps the romance of underwater diving well intact.
