Every now and then the exhilarating feeling of the island breeze tickling our sunkissed skin gives us a little cool sensation in the smoldering heat. Pool days spent in the midst of wondrous nature and architecture in post-modern colonial style with a hint of ethnic heritage call for according attire. The flirty, glamorous appeal of retro-inspired swimwear has an almost timeless allure as it is most functional and flattering on virtually any body. Hailing from the early 20th century, glamour swimwear really took off in the 1950’s and 60’s with designs featuring sweetheart necklines paired with high-waisted shorts, as seen on her, creating that ultimate pool side Hollywood starlet look with floppy sun hat and oversized cats-eye shades. This bikini is a true classic with authentic black and white striped print, with the twist detail of the top giving it a playful feminine touch. For men, the length of swimming shorts kept changing throughout even the shortest stretch of the past decades. This classic length in an almost neon, vibrant turquoise green marks the modern day interpretation of the 50’s cut. The matching mirrored Gatsby sunglasses by Rayban complete this fetching bathing vestment. That summer high, it always feels so classic.
