By instinct one might be inclined to minimize clothing in the middle of the summer months, but you still can't deny the dynamic glamor of Double Vision by Urivaldo Lopes. This editorial may not feature the most practical of beachy ensembles, but it surely does exude a certain heat for all of the right reasons.
Lionel Mahaut styled these spreads for the July/August 2011 issue of L’Officiel Ukraine, harnessing the eccentric flavor that this publication flaunts so well. While in some cases it's hardly clear what might be classified as swimwear as opposed to exuberant couture embellishment, but this idiosyncratic pictorial seems to indicate that they might be one in the same. Fundamentally, Double Vision by Urivaldo Lopes serves to inspire fashionistas to invent their own unique tropical looks with metallic patterns, snakeskin, sheer fabrics and leather.
