The elegant swimsuits featured in Vogue China's 'Urban Swimwear Garden' editorial channel aristocracy at its most refined and high fashion. Modeled by the striking Marique Schimmel, these suits exude class and charm, making them the perfect ensembles for high-class beach lovers.

Each swimsuit exists in a color palette of mauve, pale pink and red, and employs a high-waisted design reminiscent of 1940s and 50s swimwear. This high-waisted look offers more coverage for the bathing beach-goer while creating flattering lines around the waist, giving the wearer a curvy hourglass shape.

Coverups are featured quite prominently along with the swimsuits in this editorial. Each coverup is white, and exists either as a long, flowing robe, a maxi skirt, or a shawl-cape hybrid. These long lines and flowing fabrics add to the aristocracy of the editorial.

The elegant swimsuits featured in 'Urban Swimsuit Garden' are indicative of a change in the swimsuit industry towards a more skin-covering, retro-style bathing suit that is sure to flatter women of all sizes.
