An Insider Guide To Lisbon With Lindsey Holland

Content creator, Lindsey Holland, has been very busy indeed; not only has she just moved to Lisbon, she has also unveiled a capsule collection with sustainable swimwear brand Vanessa Sposi.

Previously based in London, Lindsey Holland has found herself in Lisbon: ‘I really wanted an adventure that meant I could spend more time by the sea, and also surfing!’ With her love for being near water, her hotly-launched collaboration with Vanessa Sposi couldn’t be more timely. Marrying Holland’s cool-girl sporty aesthetic with the luxe fabrications Sposi has become known for, the small but perfectly formed collection of bikini, swimsuit, and baseball cap, are all you need to embody effortless beach chic. ‘I wanted this collection to represent me and how I feel when I’m at the beach’, Holland adds, ‘I think everyone feels their most beautiful when they’re in a place they love- and for me that’s by the sea.’
