"The water is calm and clear, the bodies laid out on the sand sparkle with seaspray. Sun-drenched fantasy? No, it's the summertime. Our special issue brings a completely new approach to savoring the sunny coda that we long for all year", writes Emmanuelle Alt,Vogue Pariseditor-in-chief, in her June/July 2014 editorial. With her enviable figure poured into a red bikini, cover girl Natasha Poly raises the temperature for Inez & Vinoodh, as a water babe to rival Romy Schneider in La Piscine. Get your own body beach-ready with the Vogue Paris approach to toning up for Summer, as with a little help from technology, model advice, meditation and sport we go back to basics to keep body and mind in top form. Reach for the red and white looks that are set to turn heads poolside under the Summer sun and when you're ready for a little light refreshment, turn to the cocktail colors of our fine jewelry treasures and pre-Fall/Winter 2014-2015 round-up. Shade-seekers should head to the upcoming Jeff Koons exhibition, or one of many insider addresses from fashion stars includingLou Doillon, Milla Jovovich, Karlie Kloss and Mario Testino. Vacation time is just around the corner.
