We rarely shoot a one-piece, but when we do, we don’t mess around. Forget the days of wearing one to cover up. With high-cut Brazilian bottoms, a plunging back and virtually no upper body coverage, this single piece of Lycra by Cantik Swimwear certainly commands attention.
We’d been looking for a place to shoot it for most of our Fiji trip, but it wasn’t until we reached Taveuni Island that our vision came to life. Our home on the island was the incredible Taveuni Island Resort & Spa – a boutique 5-star property perched high on a cliff with uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean. It may have been a resort, but with resident Dobermans to muck around with, we felt completely at home.
In an ideal world I’d just rock this one-piece on it’s own, but with honeymoon couples lunching on the deck right near us, we were cautious. Not everyone likes side boob with their salad, especially when it’s a romantic meal, so out of respect I teamed the swimsuit with a classic white shirt.
White on white is one of my favourite looks for summer and makes for a killer black and white editorial. We can’t wait to share the rest of our shoots and adventures from our time on Taveuni Island in Fiji.
