Wow, the year’s already half over, and I can’t help but look back at the amazing start we’ve had. From cover stars to great events, our success is a reflection of the incredible support Ocean Drive continues to receive from our readers and partners. We’re really feeling the love this summer, and what better way to celebrate than with our highly anticipated annual Swim Issue? Gracing this year’s cover: the absolutely gorgeous Chrissy Teigen, photographed to stunning effect at The Cove Atlantis resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. To put an exclamation point on the celebratory mood, we’ll also be hosting the afterparty to the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim kickoff, held Thursday, July 14, at the W South Beach.
With summer, travel comes to mind. That could mean anything from staycations to Bahamian jaunts, or even a trip north to the Hamptons— all of which we touch upon in this double issue. And if you’re one of the many locals who plan to stick close to home, hit up one of the Grey Goose Summer Soireé events, which we’ll be telling you about via our e-newsletter. Don’t forget to sign up at oceandrive.com.
Hope to see you around town….
