EVARAE

KALITA

On a trip to Greece, founder Kalita Al Swaidi, witnessed women in free-flowing dresses rather than the structured summer looks she’d packed. She created her glamorous resort wear brand with light-packing, 60s icons in mind. Her Brigitte silk maxi dresses evoke a bohemian spirit and the glamour of St Tropez.

JOHANNA ORTIZ

Colombian designer Johanna Ortiz creates feminine and fun pieces inspired by her home town of Cali, Colombia. Her bold details and fresh prints invite women to ‘have fun’ and bring fabulous frivolity to day-to-night dressing. We’ll be packing her decorative halterneck dresses.


AGUA BY AGUA BENDITA

Inspired by the vibrant culture of South America friends, Catalina Alvarez and Mariana Hinestroza, founded their label after finding a box of discarded fabric samples while studying in Colombia. Today, the duo create ready-to-wear and swimwear pieces using traditional design, with craftsmanship by a team of local female artisans.
