This summer it is all about getting the beach look right but right for YOU. By this we mean the one that mostly reflects your mood. Send the correct message and enjoy a fully fashionable summer.
Swide suggests the ultimate summer kits for vintage glamour women, for the
ones that cannot wait to express their bohemian side, for the eternal city girls
or for the ones that have decided that this summer is going to be wild.
From the bag to the book, these are your suitable essentials to lean, lay and love.
Vintage Glamour : Dolce&Gabbana
Many of us are fond of anything that is tagged vintage. Why? Well because it
is synonym of glamour. Summer seems to be the perfect time to get inspired by
fifties looks, movies and just let our imagination go. How about pretending to
be a Hollywood actress just out of a black and white movie? If “Some Like it
Hot”*, you might do as well…
Opt for a Dolce&Gabbana beach basket that is like no other with a black crochet detail, throw in it a stylish camera, a good book to inspire you such as The Art of the Scrapbook by Cecil Beaton, and head to the beach bar in your favourite wedges and oversized sunglasses. Vintage, yes but you are of your time so slide your newly acquired iPad in a Dolce&Gabbana exclusive case. We made a trailer, you star your movie…
"Some Like it Hot"*: movie directed by Billy Wilder, 1959.
Pure Adventure: Dolce&Gabbana
"Me Tarzan, You Jane"… Let’s get the Bo Derek look and go on the wild side. No need to be in a jungle or in a surviving mode. Only the look count, so count the dark spot on you leo print and slip into a swimsuit that has a real “décolleté”. Be creative and play the match game with a Dolce&Gabbana iPad case: 3 colours, 3 ways of seeing the adventure. It is summer, there is no way down as mentioned on the cover of the book No Way Down: Life and Death on K2 by Graham Bowley that you will leave on your towel while deep diving in some turquoise waters. Leave an animal trace behind you, but not too strong, just a mesmerizing enchanting smell: Light Blue by Dolce&Gabbana. To dress up your feline attributes, a cable necklace, and some bejewelled flats (Dolce&Gabbana) should add the bling without the ring.
Allow yourself to relax and enjoy a bohemian twist on your beach look. Focus on the print for your swimsuit with a classic paisley that is just exotic enough to push you in the holidays. Say summer with a reworked version of the traditional beach basket. The chic is the leather handle, finished like a proper city handbag, this carry-all is good enough for your essentials and your summer reading Flappers and Philosophers F. Scott Fitzgerald. Fancy a walk and a talk let your spartiate shoes (D&G) make the conversation. Like a good pilgrim you will frame your sea view with bold orange D&G sunglasses and for the mock and the troc a metallic chunky cord necklace will answer your call.
City Girl : D&G
It is summer in the city, but let’s play it intimate and stop in a harbour or a coastal urban point. In a word, a place where heels are still “de rigueur”, where flirty light frocks rock the pavement and surf the sand. La vie en rose, the gloom and the bloom out of a D&G rose bottle, L’Amoureux, … a simple desire expressed in a dream. In a form of an urban dragonfly you will appear on his bed table and with a blink of an eye you will hypnotise him. Flip through the pages of Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcom Gladwell and keep fresh and hydrated at all times with a design iced carafe. Leave a note to the waiter: this evening you might be free. Behind your D&G darkly pink sunglasses: you browse, you choose and you catch.
