Summer is all about relaxing, recharging, a great burst of energy encouraging positive thinking, well-being and joie de vivre.

The French Riviera is my inspiration for both the interiors I create and my own personal style. White and blues in different shades and texture help to create a casual chic style, perfect for the beach, summer parties, or entertaining. I always introduce a touch of gold to add glamour and create a more sophisticated look.”

Every year our family heads to Mykonos, Greece for our summer break. The simplicity of the blue and white colour scheme, mixed with pink Bouganvilea always makes me the happiest and most relaxed. It is understated, cool and timeless. As a result I tend to mix this in to my entertaining scheme over the summer holidays. Mix prints, patterns and blooms.

I’m a summer girl through and through. I love to wear as much colour and print as I can on the beach and by the bar. I’m obsessed with the current global artisan trend; my tassel slides and textured heels from Brazil, Pom Pom straw bags from Bali and colourful earrings from Mexico add that ‘I’m a citizen of the world’ vibe. My motto for accessories is ‘never enough’; pack as much as you can. Because playful hoops and statement necklaces can be worn with anything (even your one piece) and they make any simple out fit POP. My favourite scent to pack on holiday (and wear when I’m not so I pretend I am on holiday) is Cocobello by James Heeley. Everyone always comments when I wear it. It’s a heady mix of gardenia, dark rum and ylang ylang.

“Being base in Singapore, we are bless in a sense to have summer all year round. It is always easy to get dress during overseas trips when its cold as it is something that we lack and we embrace the colder weather. That being said, with 365 days of summer, we have become the master of summer dressing. This year, I am gearing towards more skirts thats are structured which could be dolled up with a crop top and a statement necklace. Pleats are also my new love, with it giving a great flow in the wind and an interesting texture to the overall outfit.”

“Bare legs, solid nude polish, pretty toes, wedges, little dresses, Quay sunnies, white, high waisted shorts, shoulders, skin, and insouciance. Living in the tropics means my Summer game is honed 24/7, 365..”

I personally like to wear long maxi dresses and rompers, especially when I want to feel that I am all about sun, salt and play. Maxi dresses make me feel comfortable yet elegant whilst playsuits tend to make me feel chic and sexy. This summer, I have created a collection using heather fabric with a stylish slubbed deep-denim effect, on some new resort styles like body con dress and playsuit. Playsuits in general are really fun to wear and easy to dress it up with a jacket when I need to look chic. I can also match it with bangles, dangling earrings, espadrilles wedged sandals or nice heels to suit the different occasions. Voila! Beach to bar too.
