Versace for H&M SS’12

Versace for H&M SS’12 collection brings us a tasty little selection of fruity beach wear featuring some of our favourite iconic and archival Versace magic.  And no need to sharpen those elbows, the collection is available only online from January 19th, here.

The Visor

The panama is dead this spring summer.  No longer relegated to ‘mum’ status, the visor is back but with a modernist edge – neoprene was key across many of the Cruise catwalks. From top to bottom:  Russian Vogue, Marc Jacobs, Kenzo, Mulberry, Givenchy, Balenciaga, Mulberry.

 

 

Temptation Island – Vogue US

Girl-of-the-moment Karlie Kloss by Mario Testino.  A powerful print story and the freshest spring colours with peeps of swimwear by Eres, Tori Praver Swimwear, Nina Ricci. Almost time to dig out the Hawaiian shirts and make them new again. That Stella McCartney Hawaiian-print cotton top (2nd from the bottom) is popping up all over the place, we’re having a South Pacific moment.

WOW beach towels

(WOW) ‘Works on Whatever’ towels feature designs from famous artists, bringing art to the masses…and a beach near you!  Better yet, revenue earned goes to their non-profit mission ‘Art Production Fund’.

These towels will add serious cred to any beach bag, I’ll take the Jeff Koons, thank you very much.

Artists from top to bottom:  Cindy Sherman, Jasper Johns, Julian Schnabel, Ed Ruscha, Raymond Pettibon, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Jeff Koons, Peter Doig, Tracey Emin.

 

Excessive print

V Magazine presents Cruise collections abound with clashing prints and pop colours.  I’m dreaming of an Island Christmas, adorning myself with a festive lei or 3.

NY Times

Thank you to fave blog, Because I’m Addicted for this glimpse into an idyllic tropical paradise shot by Angelo Panetta for NY Times T Style.  So many gorgeous treats to take on our next island jaunt and loving the recurrent theme of big tropical, Hawaiian prints. Don’t hold back.  Clash them up with a mish mash of colours and patterns, namely stripes.
