Black and White Swimsuits – Our pick for 2019

Colour trends come and go with each season but the black and white swimsuits and bikinis keep returning year after year without fail. The reason is quite simple – there is always a demand and 2019 is certainly no exception. Black and White swimwear does not need to re-invent itself each season, it has the confidence in itself that it can remain classic and classy without having to try too hard. Customers return each year for their monochrome one piece mainly because it ticks all the boxes required from swimwear. It is flattering, timeless and sophisticated. It offers the safety of a black swimsuit but with a statement twist which brings in the fun. For those of you on the hunt for a beautiful Black and White swimming costume, there are a lot to choose from as all the swimwear designers like Seafolly, Moontide and Banana Moon will treat us to beautiful designs as a staple but here are a couple of our favourite for 2019.

Going Behind the Scenes on our Beachwear Photoshoot 

Plus our Review of Simpson Travel’s The Korsan Kuzey Villa, Kalkan When looking for the perfect location for a photoshoot, we always have a fairly hefty list of requirements. Of course we need to find somewhere picturesque, blue sea and bright sandy beaches are at the top of the wish list. We also need to factor in where the light will be at certain times of day as well as where and when the sun sets at different times of year. Practicalities of multiple outfit changes and a venue for hair and makeup need to be taken into account plus excessive heat and high winds can all prove challenging (not to mention the dreaded rain!)  Coco Bay are big fans of Simpson Travel and after a very successful photoshoot earlier this year at one of their spectacular villas in Kalkan we were keen to return. We enlisted their help once again and loved their suggestion of using The Korsan Kuzey, a spectacular hillside villa set amongst the wild olive groves which surround Kalkan. With it’s Infinity pool, grand style architecture, pretty terraced gardens and private access to the sea, we felt sure that this would present the perfect back drop to the shoot and we couldn’t wait to be there!
