Early Marilyn Monroe rocked a high waist 2-piece & so can you!
I’ve been vacating at my Western retreat and have suddenly become fixated with one of my collection of retro Hollywood ski and Western photos that I used in the decoration of our place out here.
It’s an early photo of Marilyn Monroe on snow skis at the beach.
Don’t think it’s the cutesy gimmick of the shot or the technicolor lighting that I’m focused on. It’s what Marilyn is wearing that suddenly seems to look so modern and fresh to me.
Her color-blocked, high waist 2-piece swimsuit seems so of the moment.
And, yes, I’m grooving her T-strap wedgies too.
Just as that thought passed my mind, here comes the fabulously chic, slightly retro vibe of the new C&M by Camilla and Marc swimwear for resort/holiday 2012.
Ironic, yes?! I’ll let Naveed tell you more.— S.H.
Dive into the season’s call for graphic color-blocking with Camilla & Marc’s latest C&M resort swimwear range in-stores from October 15th.
Inspired by Brazil’s glamorous beach culture and the modernist landscape architecture of Roberto Burle Marx, their paneled, minimal offerings are destined to keep you looking sleek, modern and in sync with the current tides of fashion.
We love the Mario Testino campaign photos too! — Naveed Hussain
