Pulling fashion looks for our editorial shoots is one of the best parts of our job. The location we selected for our story A Return to Glamour in the summer edition was Hale Honu, a private estate tucked away on Maui’s southernmost coast. The styling cues—and hues—of the day were inspired by the midcentury modern design ethos of Palm Springs, California. The old Hollywood-meets-new-bohemia vibe of Palm Springs means bold color, pattern and shine in fashion. We went totally retro for the swimwear looks (find the credits below). Enjoy! Photography by Anna Kim

Vanessa is wearing a Hawaiian print dress by couture designer Jeffrey Yoshida. Based in Honolulu, Yoshida’s dresses are heralded for their precise detail and effortless sophistication, and this one inspired by Audrey Hepburn. 

We love the fresh look of a white bikini. Here, Vanessa is lounging poolside in a Tori Praverbikini top with Aila Blue Moscow bottoms and Marc Jacobs sunglasses. Furniture bySignature Boutique Event Rentals, Maui.

The mod cut of this Aila Blue dress was perfect for the Midcentury glamour look. We loved the bright green hue! Sunglasses by Marc Jacobs. 

How cute are those custom shaved ice cone wrappers by Ceci New York? Garnish Events created a festive mini shaved ice  display, perfect for a poolside party. Vanessa is wearing Tori Praver’s Cabazon bikini and Juicy Couture sunglasses. 

When it comes to Hawaii beach life, nothing makes a statement like Acacia Swimwear, one of the country’s most recognized swim lines and a mainstay of Maui beach culture. Vanessa is gorgeous in Acacia’s Positano crochet maxi dress in vanilla, holding a striking bouquet of green hydrangea, yellow kangaroo paw, ranunculus, spray rose and bells of Ireland byMandy Grace.  Isn’t that Acacia Morocco skirt in dragon fruit to die for?
