Founded by former fashion publicist Holly Anna Scarsella who spent her childhood between the UK and St Tropez, Pampelone Clothing will make you feel like Bridget Bardot. Inspired by the effortless beauty of the Cote D’Azur, we adore her boho-chic summer pieces.

When it comes to swimwear, it's all about high quality fabric and flattering designs. Luckily, Marysia Swim ticks both boxes (it's also adored by Gwyneth Paltrow). We're obsessed with these classic prints and sophisticated scalloped edges. They also do adorable swimwear for kids so you can match your mini - perfect if you're into the mummy-and-me fashion trend.

THE BOHO BAG: Wayuu Mochila by Mo-Nique
We have found the ultimate summer statement bag. The Wayuu people of Colombia hand weave some of Mochila Wayuu's slouchy pieces using just one single thread. The end result is an eye-popping print that is the perfect accompaniment to your summer look.

These sandals are a fashion Instagrammer's dream. Sourcing the finest local Greek leather, beads and pom poms, Elina’s colourful sandals are exquisitely handcrafted in Athens. Of course getting them on with kids might be a bit tricky, but once you're dressed you'll never want to take them off.
