Right after that early breath of fresh air that doesn’t smell like winter at all and a very first walk spent haunting the streets without a heavy jacket on, there’s only one fantasy that can instantly invade both the mind and the soul. It all begins with the long for an endless summer, the craving for an exotic destination and the need of a light wardrobe able to brave the heat and fit any given occasion, all day, all night.
Photographed by Kelly Defina, Laura Andric effortlessly models what appears to be the perfect summer beach apparel, both colourful and relevant, intricate yet uncomplicated. Living the dream doesn’t seem all that impossible when you’re wearing a stunning colour-blocked one piece, a bold zip front strapless top that begs for attention or a halter top that can easily inject an outfit with poise and edge. These unique street wear outfits are blended from high fashion pieces by the likes of Willow, Ksubi and Dion Lee, with sporty neoprene bikinis and one-pieces by A.T.G. Clothing.
Vanessa Belle helped paint the perfect summer portrait by opting for a fresh, natural make-up and several hair-styles, including a textured braid, that worked towards emphasizing the cool factor defining the clothes. Styled with ankle boots and sunglasses, the body conscious silhouettes gained a brand new attitude.
