Havaianas Collaborates With Design Studio Reality to Idea
Travelling abroad might not be on your to-do list this year but we can channel our inner Los Angeles vibe with the brand new collaboration between Havaianas and graphic artist Joshua Vides’ design studio, Reality to Idea. Inspired by LA, the collection celebrates the bohemian spirit of Venice Beach, fused with Vides signature black and white illustration style. The range includes a top, T-Shirt, flip flops, socks and a beach towel, all following the same Reality to Idea monochrome graphic. We basically feel like we’re already on a Southern Californian beach!
Being raised in Southern California, anytime we would hear or see the Havaianas brand was because we were near the beach. We wanted to develop a “Beach Essentials” collection that you could pack up and hit the sand with.Joshua Vides, founder of Reality to Idea

Eco-Swimwear Brand Away That Day Collaborates with Influencer Bettina Looney
One thing we love about summer is swimwear shopping, and this year is even easier as eco-friendly swimwear brand Away That Day launches an eye-catching collection with Bettina Looney. This partnership embodies elegance, style and body confidence, whilst ensuring that true joint passion for sustainability. Sticking to this idea of planet-friendly swimwear, the pieces have been made from regenerated nylon, derived from ocean plastic, fishing nets and other waste materials. *adds the whole collection to basket*
I was very much inspired by my mum, especially her style back in the 80’s! I love the flattering shape of the bikini and how the bottoms sit high on the hips. I love Away That Day’s sustainability aspect and how inclusive the brand is – It is an amazing way forward. I love how the collection has a bit of a Miami flare to it, and especially how it was inspired by something my mum wore in the ’80s. My favourite has to be the two-piece bikini with the high waisted bottom – I’m obsessed with it!Bettina Looney
