Reinventing the classic black swimsuit: OYE

Masters of simplified sexiness (of the swimwear kind) – OYE – know precisely how to merge the season’s key swimwear trends into their own classic style. Their latest capsule for Turkish retailer ROMAN features more ways to reinvent the black swimsuit than you might expect, utilising asymmetrical cuts, sheer panels, Grecian Goddess sentiments and a bit of imagination.

Thankfully, fetish & high fashion are still getting along just fine

It seems strange to think it now, but there was a time when leather harnesses and metal cuffs were styling fodder found only deep underground; when mainstream magazines didn’t consider fetish and high fashion utterable in the same breath. Those days are behind us, and with each new interpretation of bondage leather and delicate lace that reaches our eyes comes a renewed gratitude for the…

This Moeva swim campaign makes us long for sun & sand

Moeva have a habit of wowing with their swimwear designs, always settling upon that perfect balance between highly unique and ultimately classic. Any brand who thinks you need leopard prints, lame and sequins to shine on the beach (here’s throwing a raised eyebrow in your direction, Victoria’s Secret swim) can be pretty quickly proved wrong by Moeva’s use of twists and turns and contrast panels…

Summer loving on the break of the beach

Breaking into summer is one of the most pleasing and invigorating experiences to go through on every level of life. From the warm summer sun opening up in the skies, to the pleasure of stealing away moments outdoors, to the fun and exciting additions you can make to your wardrobe.  Variations of bikinis and one piece swimwear always seem to gain a significant amount of…

Barbora & Maryia by Koray Parlak: simply splendid

We keep on exploring the present while fantasizing about the future, but every once in a while, the past catches up, disarming us with a romanticized version of the good-old days and suddenly it is all about “then”, and a little less about “now”. It only takes a luxurious backdrop, some gold accents shimmering in the decor, a couple of striking floor-length dresses and a…

Stylespiration for black and white dressing

Black and white is the new colour. No, really. For a long time now desaturation has been the enemy of fashion, with black in particular being equated to unphotographable and boring. But tides always turn and the shades at either end of the spectrum are waging war against the brights in between. Black needs white though, and white black. It’s about balancing the two, creating…

Model magic in a crumbling world

There’s something surreal about elegant evening styling juxtaposed against the backdrop of an abandoned building… Like one of Koray Parlak’s (korayparlak.com) shots of model Rose Botman draped across a velvet lounge wearing a feather-trimmed frock, wine-glass casually in hand while the mist shrouds the crumbling walls behind her and the light filters through from where a roof used to be. In another brilliant and surreal…

Moeva: swimwear classics reimagined

Every time you think you’ve seen it all when it comes to swimwear – every strappy black monokini, every white one piece with gold hardware, every gathered goddess bikini – someone comes along and executes it all a little differently. Moeva sees the classics with fresh eyes. The London-based brand (yes, rainy London can produce amazing swimwear designers too. Someone has to cater for all…

Coffins and candelabra make for a grim but gorgeous shoot

Ravens, coffins, candelabra… If we had to hazard a guess, Koray Parlak’s latest shoot is channeling fall 2012 fashion‘s love of the Gothic, awakening dark thoughts and reminiscing on grim childhood tales in the process. The blonde milkmaid braids and graphic white-on-black eyemakeup – matched with deep red lips – are brooding evil queen all over, but Cristina Cosentino’s fashion direction makes sure that this…

Sun drenched Venice beckons

“A realist, in Venice,” Arthur Symons once remarked, “would become a romantic by mere faithfulness to what he saw before him.” And that romanticism has captured the hearts and imaginations of many poets and artists throughout history. We might well add photographers to that list, too. For the photographer, Venice is a subject that needs no makeup, no styling or fancy lighting tricks to enhance…
