A friend of mine from New York, Ilona Hamer, started her own swimwear line last year called Matteau Swim. Ilona is a well-known stylist (doing a lot of work for Unconditional Magazine, Styleby, Russh and more) who also got a great eye for design and style. The line is beautiful with modern and classic pieces, very simple yet very tasteful. In their spring and summer campaign (I believe the girls when to Mexico and Coqui Coqui Hotel if I am not mistaken) they have shot their pieces for summer’16. My favorite set is the yellow one, almost mustard in the tone, worn by Phoebe Tonkin and photographed by Alexandra Nataf. The brand has also got a beautiful and inspirational Instagram, which you wouldn’t want to miss for one bit – find it here.
I am all about chunky bohemian and chic jewellry when I am going out. For an everyday use I like wearing more subtle and simple pieces but for dressing up I love wearing statement jewellery like my Lara Bohinc earrings. So when I found these beauties above, from the Australian brand Mezi, I fell head over heels in love. I wouldn’t mind wearing all of the rings, at once (!) since I love a chunky knuckle and mixing rings together. From their AW12 collection I found some earrings as well… Love the idea of styling them with simple pieces to create a focus around the jewellery. You’ll find them here.
