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.
Above and below are accessories, leather goods and shoes I definitely wouldn’t say no to for this spring and summer. Especially not the large white “pillow” hand bag, nor the “flap pillow” clutch in black. These bags making me think about Pierre Paulin’s Canape sofa in leather, or Vittorio Introini designed chairs for Saporiti from the1970s. Anyway, the suede clutch from Resort 2016 isn’t bad either.
