Ahhh beaches and discos, my two favourite things. I love love love Massimo Vitali‘s cult photo book, Beach & Disco, perfect for perusing at this time of year while envying the likes of Marc Jacobs frolicking on the sands of St Bart’s and other beachy New Year destinations.

Marc Jacobs rallied a few of his favourite muses to model for the campaign, chiming with the prevailing trend of the last few seasons for an all-ages approach to fashion (Edie Campbell, Catherine Deneuve and Fan Bingbing also feature).
