Inspired by Mother Earth – Have you heard the call?

Have you heard the call? The call to venture into the unknown and meet your tribe in an ecstatic celebration of love, music and nature? Whether it’s a full–moon party on a tropical island or a deep–desert dance fest, the party starts as soon as you decide to drop everything and follow your heart. Travel light; you only need to pack the essentials. With some great swimwear, like my own fashionable yet durable bikinis and bathing suits, you’re ready for any type of action!

What other fashion items can handle heat, sweat, sea water and spontaneous headstands, all while looking super stylish? Over 50 years ago, nearly half a million hippies walked, biked or hitchhiked their way to Woodstock where, during three days of peace and music, they changed the world. Their slogans – ‘Power to the people’ and ‘Save the earth’ – are as powerful as ever, brought back to life each time we get together to make the world a better, more beautiful place, whether it’s during Coachella or a climate demonstration. My Mother Earth swimwear collection celebrates the hope, joy and diversity of these global gatherings. With my designs, I dare you to show your true colors and walk on the wild side. Feel the urge to dance in the desert, rock out in the rain or go for a midnight swim? Go right ahead! With this season’s colorful, multifunctional swimwear, you can answer the call in style.

Ruthie Davis is just like the amazing shoes she designs: daring, empowering and totally fabulous. After making Reebok hip again and completely revamping Uggs, she launched her own brand 10 years ago and quickly became the go-to designer for feminine feminists like Beyoncé and Lady Gaga.

She grew up in a town with 3 traffic lights; now Lisa Benson represents some of the top names in the industry like Chanel Iman, Chrissy Teigen and Kelly Rohrbach. I met up with the IMG model manager to talk about the art of persistence and the importance of dreaming big. “I always trust my instinct.”
