Marvel at Mara Hoffman


Beautiful, exotic, tribal print clash. Another stunning collection by Mara Hoffman – bikinis, swimsuits and floaty silk cover ups with divine detailing.  The neon green frilly bandeau bikini is on my lust list.  And I can see myself wafting around in that kaftan with bare feet and a smile.  Loving her blog too.

Chanel athletics by the sea

I can’t stop looking at Chanel’s incredible Spring/Summer ’12 campaign styled by the inimitable Carine Roitfeld and shot at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. Is that a pearly white nail polish that I can spy? I’m predicting it’s the colour used in their Spring / summer ’12 show called Attraction, available from May. Better get your name on the wait list!



Behold this YSL beauty

I can’t decide what I love most about this incredible YSL swimsuit.  The plunging neckline?  The 80s high thigh-cut?  The nautical anchor appliqué?  The classic black silhouette? This is very Goldie Hawn in Overboard – those fabulous, iconic one-piece swimsuits she wears before she falls off her yacht and into the scheming arms of Kurt Russell.

To modernise this look, just add the Stella McCartney capelet from her Cruise 2012 collection.  And of course why wouldn’t you throw on the matching YSL anchor charm bracelet and anchor embroidered suede wedges.
