Summer Vintage: From here to eternity

In this classic black and white film that will survive as long as cinema does, viewers follow the love stories of two Army men in Hawaii, just a few months before the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese during the WWII. Robert E. Lee Prewitt (Montgomery Cliff) has requested a transfer and ends up in Hawaii, where his new captain, tries to get him to play box representing the company, by making his life a living hell. Meanwhile Sergeant Warden (Burt Lancaster) starts seeing the captain’s wife (Deborah Kerr), who has a long history of seeking lovers in order to find relief from her troubled and dysfunctional marriage.

The famous kiss at the beach where Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr are lying fully oblivious of the waves crashing across them, is perhaps one of the most powerful and immortal in the movies history due to the couples impossible romance and Kerr’ s style and femininity.

The black swimsuit not only inspires us for chic appearances on the beach but works as a perfect basic piece for ethereal and romantic ensembles.
