What Our Fashion Editor Is Loving This May

It’s time to plan your spring/summer sartorial calendar, aided by Citizen Femme’s May 2024 fashion round-up.

Featuring holiday-ready pieces, cool-capsules and an exciting store launch, our fashion editor’s picks will see you through the summer in style.


This Californian-based fashion brand combines vintage West Coast vibes with European cool, and their latest capsule collection is just in time for summer. Inspired by the glamorous escapism of the French Riviera, FRAME has created warm-weather essentials perfect for sun-drenched escapes. Think sophisticated crochet pieces and romantic lace details paired with staple denim – the ultimate Parisian-girl wardrobe. 



Jet-setter favourite Hunza G has extended its offering with an exclusive shirting capsule: The Weekend Collection, to coincide with the brand's 40th anniversary. Designed to wear solo or layered over your swimwear, the collection has three shirts and shorts sets in black-and-white linen and stripe-cotton poplin, which will take you from cover-ups on the beach to al fresco daytime dining and balmy days in the city.


Bohemian-inspired resortwear label Second Summer pays homage to the captivating island of Ibiza with a new collection that embodies its unique allure. Ethereal prints and a soft colour palette grace matching separates, linen dresses and multi-way sarongs that will slot seamlessly into your holiday wardrobe.


Metier's summer collection was inspired by founder Melissa Morris' trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, a city she long admired for its vibrant energy, rich sense of culture and high-octane colours. Complementing the brand's timeless neutral colour palette, the new vivid hues brighten the mood whilst staying true to Metier's DNA of transcending trends. Expect their iconic designs reimagined in soft blue, burnt orange and mustard yellow, amongst natural linen and cognac leather.


Based between London and Athens, this Greek jewellery brand by mother-and-daughter duo, Alexia and Stalo Karides, is the name to know for standout summer pieces. YSSO speaks to lovers of unique design with gold plated styles that turn heads, and are celebrating the launch of exclusive sterling silver styles on NET-A-PORTER for summer.


Réalisation Par is the fashion sets' most beloved brand, and last month marked the unveiling of their first standalone store on Mayfair's prestigious Mount Street with a carefully-curated selection of the brand's most iconic pieces. A haven for holiday shopping, you can immerse yourself in Réalisation's world of elevated, cult-classic dresses, from the Gia to the Lila.

French designer Rowen Rose proves safari style doesn't have to be boring, with an 11-piece collection designed exclusively for London-based boutique Koibird that celebrates women as protagonists of their own adventures; embodying liberation, sexuality, and a profound connection to the wild. Bold leopard print separates, vibrant green polka dots and tailored linen pieces all come together for a playful safari-themed capsule that represents powerful femininity through the female gaze.


Whether you're team Boston or team Arizona, BIRKENSTOCK's are a staple in all frequent-flyers' wardrobes. This month sees the launch of the Suede Braided. Mixing the classic suede material of the shoe with oiled leather braiding, this is a footwear refresh that will see you through the summer months.
