Around the world in 10 swimwear collections
Amelia Earhart was a free spirit with an adventurous lifestyle; something considered quite outrageous for a woman at the beginning of the 20th century. But we’ve come a long way, baby!
Just compare Amelia’s globetrotting, spontaneous trips and no-fuss dressing to our own lifestyles. Don’t you think we’re all Amelia’s now? We’re active, we’re on the move, we take lovers and we like to travel light. We indulge in our wanderlust; we claim our freedom. My latest swimwear collection is a marvelous ode to exactly that kind of freedom. The freedom to travel and visit exotic places, the freedom to use our wings.
Whether you want to swim, lounge, jog, do a spontaneous handstand or dance the night away; I’ve got you covered. (Quite literally, actually; my bikinis stay in place no matter what and are definitely burpee-proof!). And whether you prefer bathing suits or like to feel the sun kiss your belly; thanks to the many styles per look, you can enjoy the sensuality of the sun, sand and sea on YOUR terms.
From my sleek, glamorous ‘Black Sea‘ collection to the deliciously flirty, red-and-white gingham looks of my coquettish ‘Côte d’Azur collection; each piece was designed to make you feel comfortable, confident and fabulous enough to use the beach or pool as your catwalk. So, grab your bikini and let’s hit the road!

How to keep your heels and standards HIGH
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. I met up with the American style maven in New York where we discovered we have a lot in common. Ruthie: “Fashion can be a tough game! I’m proud to still be standing… in my six-inch heels!”

Selfmade STAR maker
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.”
