Sunsational Fun-A A +A
Thursday, April 12, 2012
TURN your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind. The sun does not only give off heat that burns the skin but, more importantly, radiates warmth to the spirit and vigor to cheer up life. With all the good things put together, what is the best tribute for the sun?
A fine idea is to compliment the sun by having a Sunsational Fun while donning some of the chicest swimming garments brought to light by two determined designers: Jerrick Macasocol and Bree Esplanada.
Though this is the first time they did a fun-filled collaboration, the duo proves perfection is not only achieved through practice. Bree is known for his constructive sportswear while Jerrick has the whim for theatrical couture. Going out of their comfort zones, they formulated what they now call the “Sunsational Summer” or Bree Esplanada and Jerrick Macasocol’s Summer 2012 Capsule Collection.
The concept is to incorporate minimal touches of chic and edginess in one wardrobe.
They wanted to come up with sexy and high fashion garbs yet continue to conform with the summer look, from hair to makeup to outfit to accessories – and they did just that.
They chose to pick bold and vibrant colors to complement the sun. Much of the inspiration was taken from, well aside from the sun’s glory, the dynamic look of flowers and feel of fabrics. Thus, to be able to pull these pieces off, one has to possess the vitality to match the essence of the ensemble. Of course, a woman has to love what she wears to exude the right aura from within.
To achieve the desired results, they used spandex fabric for seamless bikini bottoms and sexy bikini tops. Other items include one-piece swim suit and some beige and nude high waist bottoms. Who would not feel good about swimming and baring it to the sun when you are sexily wrapped in glowing garments?
These pieces do not only convey plain sense of allure but, more importantly, they also speak of class while showing off what is worth showing off.
What makes some of these pieces more tasteful are the black and crystal rhinestones attached to them.
Nevertheless, this very feature does not make the garments any less commercial and wearable. One has to try them to know what it means.
For the ultimate summer look, adorn these pieces with apt accessories that will help complete the visage of fierceness, edginess and freshness of blooming flowers. Wraps and hats will add to the modish staging of summer get up.
So, are these garments only good for the summer season? Not necessarily. After all, the sun does not only come out in the summer.
