La Vita Bella — The Beautiful Life

Imagine a romantic rendezvous being pampered like royalty at a world-class resort and spa on the island of Mykonos, the Italian Rivera, Barcelona, Naples or anywhere else in the Mediterranean. The following pages provide a fantasy view of that paradise in some of the beautiful swimwear and resortwear fashions that will grace the runways for Season 2018. Relax, enjoy and dream.

When one looks this good, it must be Miraclesuit! The one-piece is a key style for the season, and this one has a dual purpose. The black deep plunge maillot is joined at scoop neckline with peekaboo mesh and generously lavished with sequins for day to evening glam.

This romantically inspired V-neck dress with bell sleeves by Elan is sized small to large. Available in rose, mauve, seafoam, black and white (as shown).

Shine — another trend for the season, makes a posh statement in this black bandeau maillot accented with front zipper by Leonisa.

The shoulder — this season’s new erogenous zone. Shan’s one-shoulder maillot featuring wide asymmetrical stripes and peekaboo slit at bust line is accented with an oversized button detail at shoulder.

Double-tiered rows of see-through mesh adorn the top of this V-neck royal blue tankini by Sunsets Separates.

Filthy Haanz gives men what they really want this season in stylish poolside fashion. Swim trunks are tailored and suitably trim. Shown in a sophisticated tropical print, which pops against solid navy.

Lise Charmel turns an Asian-inspired print into a work of art.  Design elements in this unique bikini include the use of overlay, strapping details and gold-toned ornamentation.

Long flowing viscose cover-up with drawstring waist by Melissa Odabash is featured in a pastel feather print. Shown with a matching two-piece.

Pretty in pink — this trendy shade for the season is perfect for Resort By Fleur’s feminine V-wire bandeau bikini.

Femme fatale! Bikini by Agua Bendita is presented in nude — one of the trendiest colors of the season. Lattice-tie bra top is bordered with scalloped trim. Both top and bottom are embellished with embroidery.

A beautiful and refreshing watercolor floral print is the back drop for a well-fitted two-piece with shirred V-front bra top by Maryan Mehlhorn. Shown with matching pareo.

Embellished with intricate embroidery, a crop top bikini by Saha is perfect for swim, active and beyond.
