S.I. Swimsuit Issue Preview Images

 S.I. Swimsuit Issue Preview Images

Speaking of sports, it’s February and for Sports Illustrated fans, that means the famous swimsuit issue will soon be hitting stands. Over the past week, S.I. has been leaking out videos and stills, with the lucky cover model to be revealed on Dave Letterman’s show on Feb. 8th. This year, the shoot was stylized to be ’70s and ’80s inspired and “happy and sunny and more subtle” and less “full-on sexy,” according to one of the video narratives. The images, the girls and the suits are always stunningly beautiful, but it does seem that this year’s shoot could be just as at home in Elle as S.I. And take note world! Two of the models, Jessica White (after the flip) and Damaris Lewis (above right), are Brooklyn natives, and there’s a third whose first name is Brooklyn!

Aviator Nation Cut-off Cords

Leave it to the Jersey Girl to be more than a little clueless about California clothing culture. When I visited Dietch p.r.’s N.Y. showroom a week or so back, the rep introduced me to Aviator Nation, a brand I knew nothing about, but which I’m told has quite the following. Apparently it’s built a name via its distinctive color combos and trademark designs (like this summer’s lightening bolt), which have found a home in the hearts of beach-minded folks all the world over.

I swear, I have to get out more often. One of these days!

Two more after the jump, one of which is a pair of flippy-floppies.

Posso the Spat x Costume Dept. Swimwear

possocoouverture 540x363 Posso the Spat x Costume Dept. Swimwear

When I heard  about the collaboration between the very inventive Posso the Spat and Costume Dept. I expected a very visually inspiring and creative collection with a little bit of the fabulous Flo Jo (R.I.P) thrown in , a combo of one legged suits and Denise Marchebout s/s ‘09. I  got event more.  Titled ‘Space Safari’, this collaboration takes a stylish and modern look at swimwear, with very wearable styles in a mainly dark palette accentuated by neon and tribal accents.

Some standout pieces include, a very fun  unisex safari shirt, a neon netted strapless suit and a great draped ’swimsuit dress’ one piece  that would double very well as bodysuit, neon spats and great neon belts. A closer look at Posso the Spat and Costume Dept. Swimwear collection on the next page.
