You’ve likely spotted them on Instagram before. A favourite of numerous celebrities, Lack Of Color is a must in our wardrobe. Founded by a creative couple from Queensland, Australia with the mission of making hats wearable, modern and fun, their high quality yet affordable fashion accessories easily complement your everyday staple wardrobe.

Zulu & Zephyr

Founded by bona-fide beach lovers just like us, Zulu & Zephy is another Aussie label on our not-to-be-missed list. Dedicated so supporting charitable causes, the brand strives to limit social and environmental impacts on a direct level. We love how they play with  textured fabrics and clever designs, making their manufacturing something that could equally come from your mother’s drawer in the 70s – Truly tapping into the cool side of coastal fashion.

Ranger Store

To the pool or to the beach? Why decide. Anyway, if we know one thing for sure it’s that we never leave without a handmade, Turkish Ranger Store Towel. Purchasing a throw you help the label raise funds for research and treatment of MND. Select from their pastel hues or get your custom throw.

Another one of our Bali friends, slow, artisan made jewellery brand La Luna Rose closes the production loop by producing 99% recycled silver jewellery pieces, using residues of industrial scraps and end-of-life applications like electronic and electrical scrap. Founder Rosie's aim is to form bonds with her makers, while keeping the brand's environmental footprint as light as possible.
