The summer solstice is but six days away and will usher in what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasts will be a summer with “well above average” temperatures. Translation, this summer will be hot. Marloes Horst clearly has gotten the memo as evidenced in the July 2016 Marie Claire Italia cover story photographed by David Bellemère and styled by Elisabetta Massari. Marloes is pictured on the cover bounding across the beach wearing a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci bomber worn over a bikini by Calzedonia. The corresponding cover story titled “Tropical Fever” is a sprawling take on this season’s beachwear, which Marloes brings to vivid life.
