“ ‘Allure’ is a word very few people use nowadays,” she said recently, “but it’s something that exists. Allure holds you, doesn’t it? Whether it’s a gaze or a glance in the street or a face in the crowd or someone sitting opposite you at lunch… you are held.” – Diane Vreeland from Allure
There are a few things that I believe in doing solely for myself. Quiet time alone with my thoughts, a good book, uninterrupted gym time, beautiful underthings, indulgent manicures and pedicures at my favorite spa are a few of my small luxuries. While catching up with childhood friends by the pool, I realized that comfortable, well-made, elegant swimwear is one of my, just because items. There’s something utterly luxurious about a swimsuit with a streamlined silhouette that molds carefully to the body just so.
The maillot is perfect for a late summer afternoon spent leaping and plunging into the pool just like this. The Eres maillot with its perfect shape, straps, cuts and seams does simplicity at its very best. There’s something timeless sophisticated and alluring about the maillot. It just feels right in every instance. It always reminds me of Charlotte Rampling, Romy Schneider or that photo of Liz Taylor. Glamour over the overt. There’s something subversive about wearing precisely the opposite of the expected.
Over the years, I’ve invested in a few great swimsuits (both maillots and elegantly cut two pieces) that combine form and function. In no way am I suggesting that Eres is the end all of swimwear, but I adore the fabric technology that dries swiftly, holds up to the elements and lasts. As you all know, when I find something I love, there’s no going back.
Have you had any pool or beach time lately? I would love to hear what you’re wearing.
