Why to buy: B THE BEACH BRAND is a sustainable swimwear brand born and developed in Barcelona. B THE BEACH BRAND arises from the desire of two sisters to create minimalist and elegant pieces, designed to ensure a perfect fit, while being respectful with the planet.
B THE BEACH BRAND not only uses recycled fabrics. It takes care of all the phases, from design to packaging, looking for and studying all the alternatives so that the impacts are as minimal as possible. The use of plastic has been completely eliminated throughout the supply chain and has been replaced by recycled and/or biodegradable materials, generating as little waste as possible.
What we love: “Back to the source” is the third collection of B THE BEACH BRAND, an invitation to journey within… to go back to the source. To reconnect to our own nature. A manifesto to find beauty in simplicity, to find strength in fragility. A dialogue between soft and wild, between woman and wave. An ode to natural beauty. A gentle reminder to listen.
You are the secret… you are the source. This poetic vision is translated into minimal and simple yet elegant silhouettes. Drawing inspiration from nature, delicate flower prints and dreamy pastel colours meet earthy hues and textures. Soft and wild… and sensual all at once.
Why to buy: AURORE is a contemporary premium lingerie brand based in London specializing in high-quality handmade lingerie.

Why to buy: Founded in 2018, ISABEL BONNER STUDIO (iB Studio) creates season-less, sculptural, contemporary jewelry. iB Studio is about the creation of timeless objects that can live both on and off the body. Each detail of the designs has been considered accordingly –from the fastenings, links and hoops–, designed with a nod towards how we as humans navigate through spaces. The pieces have an architectural character and in a similar vein examine how things move and connect.
What we love: Each and every iB Studio piece is constructed individually in New York City by a hand-selected group of artisans. Creating pieces one by one allows them to determine quality and detail at every stage of the process and steers away from mass production methods and approaches. iB Studio is inspired by the intersectionality of design processes across furniture-making, architecture, sculpture, painting and the innate beauty of the natural world; be it flowers, coastlines or shadows.
