Pack your bags – STYLE is going on a road trip! This month we’re getting you ready for summer as we take you along with us during STYLE’s Summer Road Trip (#SSRT). We’re packing our bags and touring the Carolinas in search of what’s hot this summer in travel and tourism. We are also sitting down with our favorite Fashion folks and asking them where they usually go for summer vacation. #travelSTYLE #SSRT
Our Special Feature this month is our Fashion Editorial photographed on Coney Island Beach in NY styled by our NYC based Market Editor, Bianca Torres. Here we chat with her about the shoot (fashion editorial follows the interview).
Tell us about the swimsuits featured in this issue?
This year fashion is all about denim and mesh. The swimsuits featured for the Travel in STYLE Issue showcased the two trends in a fun, yet sophisticated way.
We combined chic bathing suits from an emerging designer label, BYLNK by Dominique Sade with accessories from Michael Kors and Oscar de la Renta.
Talk about the beauty looks in the editorial.
As for beauty the most wearable yet sought-after looks were featured for this issue. Fresh faces were seen on the Custo Barcelona’s runways at MBFW. Natural makeup is low maintenance, easy to apply and makes a statement all at once.
Orange lipstick was a staple look for Rag & Bone’s summer collection. We accented tangerine lips with the infamous cat eye liner, which is always a great makeup trend that never goes out of style.
Where was the shoot photographed and why did you choose this location?
The shoot took place at Coney Island Beach in Brooklyn, NY. Coney Island is considered a land mark and is known for their infamous Nathan’s hot dogs and Cyclone roller coaster. If traveling to the New York City area this summer, you should take a trip to Coney Island, Brooklyn for fun in the sun while enjoying one of the Big Apple’s most historical locations.
