LIGHTNESS OF BEING
This season, light-coloured lenses are in sharp focus thanks to the latest offering from Super By Retrosuperfuture. Inspired by the idea of lightness, transparency, and fading tones, Super’s collection will have you looking at the world through canary, rose, and turquoise lenses.
Do not panic about your poolside attire: Witchery’s womenswear design manager, Barbara Polo, gives us the lowdown on what to wear by the water now.
Describe the new Witchery resort and swimwear collection. It’s ultra-feminine and relaxed, combining the softness of the season with considered swimwear pieces that have been designed specifically with a focus on support and fabric technology.
What inspired the collection? It all started when we found a beautiful pastel-coloured tropical print from our international print house. We then mixed it back with natural palettes and linen, both of which were major trends coming through from the international runway shows.
What’s your personal favourite style of swimwear? I like to mix things up, but I have been wearing a one-piece for the past years — for coverage and fashionability at the same time.
What trend should we be trying this season? A square neckline top is the crucial silhouette style for swimwear this summer. The rash vest is stylish and functional for a day at the beach.
We offer a beautiful one-piece that really highlights a strong scuba trend.
Smell night-blooming f lowers in the seductive new scent from master perfumer Alberto Morillas.
