Wing Girl

On the fall of the bikini… But not really because Zanita and I shot some.

Lisa Marie Fernandez + Peter Pilotto Maillot Wing Wetsuit from STYLERUNNER

More often than not, bikinis just don’t cut it. There’s something about international beach and party cultures that have somewhat cheapened the humble two-piece from its Audrey Hepburn heights. Given my sportier inclinations in the past couple of months, this piece of wetsuited wonder (certainly my favourite against the sleeved version) has a whole lot going for it: enough shoulder (and definitely enough back) to be the coolest kid at a Miami Beach hoe-down, but with a little slick-haired superhero quality as I sit here watching and not understanding The Avengers with my kid brother who is actually seventeen. To cut a long story short, I’ve always adored Lisa Marie Fernandez’s impossibly flattering cuts and Peter Pilotto’s print genius, so a lovechild of the two is the king to driving swimwear as outerwear, or just general jungle frolicking here at Sri Panwa.

And on that note, I’m going to get back to watching Robert Downie Jr fly around in a super suit. And you should check out the full swimwear shoot of mine with Zanita right here.
