Summer is finally here and Team Coco is filling our wardrobes with bright colours, joyful prints and sustainable swimwear pieces to make the most of the brief albeit glorious British summertime in style.

Our editors have rounded up their favourite summer-ready brands so you can take your summer style to the next level.

Wanderlust Life Jewellery 

The new jewellery collection from Wanderlust Life features gorgeous heirloom-inspired pieces that borrow from the past. Inspired by the 1970s, 80s and 90s, Revival is all about a pick ‘n’ mix approach, where the emphasis is on experimentation, unexpected combinations and complete freedom of expression. Like rifling through your mum’s jewellery box or exploring a vintage shop in a foreign city, the eclectic range celebrates the joy of vintage – and we’re all for it!

With textural chains, statement pendants and eye-catching rings and earrings, the pieces are made to be piled on with confidence. The Green Onyx is a key stone for this collection. It appears on heart and porthole shaped pendants as well as the statement Sigaro chunky ring. Wishbone designs, paperclip chains and the Cornicello, horn of plenty inspired pieces have clear vintage references. All pendants are available with a choice of four adjustable chains to style solo, stack up or give your own spin.


Masarà 

Masarà is a sustainable swimwear brand offering minimal beachwear styles in a variety of vibrant block-colours.
100% sustainably made in Italy from yarn to tag, Masarà’s pieces are super soft and made from durable ECONYL fabric. All packaging is recyclable and delivered in VELA paper bags. Even the tags are printed on Alga Carta Paper by Favini, which is an innovative ecological paper made from the algae of the Venice Lagoon.

Masarà’s mix and match swimwear staples come in six vibrant colours. You’ll find a bikini top, two styles of bikini bottoms, the Coco and the Brazil Bikini slip, a one piece, beach skirts, tank tops and cute headbands all featured in Pistachio green, Azure Blue, Cappuccino Beige, Paprika Orange, Grape Purple and Blueberry Blue.

Champion

With the weather beginning to warm and planes ready for take-off, there’s one last thing to add to your summer holiday suitcase and that’s a brand new Champion bikini. Featuring tonal colourways and playful prints including bandana and snake print across a selection of bikinis and swimsuits, whether you’re jetting off to the tropics, or just heading to Brighton, there’s swimwear to suit any style from Champion this summer.

Dr. Martens x National Gallery

Punk’s favourite boots meets the National Gallery’s greatest artists in this cool fashion collab. This latest collection is the latest in the Dr. Martens’ artist series launched in partnership with convention-breaking artists such as Basquiat and Keith Haring. It features three artworks painted on Dr. Martens’ Original silhouettes that were inspired by artists that defied convention. The collaboration infuses iconic DM’s silhouettes with art that broke the rules by artists who walked their own path. The shoes feature the work of impressionists Claude Monet and Vincent Can Gogh, along with the post-impressionist George Seurat.

Tucca Swim

Tucca Swim is the British Swimwear brand by sister duo Chloe & Helaina Thomas. Its mew summer collection takes us back to the brand story with the sisters’ love for sustainability, nature and travel.

Sustainability is at the heart of the brand and all swimwear is made Econyl® regenerated nylon. We like Tucca Swim’s signature Multiway Bikini, which is as colourful and flattering as it is versatile. Other pieces include the Multiway Bikini with added frills, Bikini Brief, High Waisted Brief, Swimsuit, Sarongs, Beachwear and Hair Accessories. What we love is Tucca Swim’s inclusive sizing, which comes in UK Sizes 6-16.

Aurum

Goldsmith and designer Guðbjörg once again turns to Iceland’s myths and legends as well as the country’s flora and fauna for the inspiration which shapes her unique designs. Her latest collection was inspired by Iðunn, who In Norse mythology was the goddess of spring, youth, and rejuvenation. The new IÐUNN collection represents both the goddess and spring and is our top choice for summer jewellery.

People Of All Nations

Paying homage to 1980’s Miami beach, we love Peoples Of All Nations new ‘Pink Ice Cream’ style which is perfect for summer. Part of the VICE Collection, this latest drop was inspired by sunset hues of pinks and features casual yet cool dip dye denim pieces.

Cro-Che

Cro-Che is a forward thinking women’s label, based in London. Founder Tacita Brown, believed a fashion brand should begin with how the clothes are made, and the people who make them before anything else is considered. Cro-Che produces clothes which are hand made by extraordinarily talented female artisans in developing countries across the globe. It was important for Tacita that these skilled artisans did not have to leave their homes or their families and children to travel sometimes hundreds of miles to find work in factories based in the cities. Cro-Che aims to empower the incredibly skilled women by employing them to work from home. Conscious, slow and beautiful fashion? Now that’s the kind of brand we can get behind.

Clō Stories

Clō Stories is a SUSTAINABLE Barcelona-based brand launched in June 2017.

Clō is all about nature and sustainability with bathing suit designs adapt to your body enhancing your natural feminine side. Its cute swimwear pieces are reversible you can mix and match them for endless summer looks.

Clō is focused on the slow fashion movement.

All its clothing is designed in our studio in Barcelona and Made in Barcelona. All its clothing is made of fabrics and materials locally and sustainably-sourced and we love that.
