🔫Heidi Sommerau and Kirsty Ames🔫 👙👙👙👙👙👙👙👙👙👙☀️
@ayla.swim ☀️ Kirsty and Heidi created Ayla Swim in 2018 after bonding over their love of the beach. For Kirsty, it’s Trinidad and Tobago and for Heidi, from Hong Kong, it’s the secret shores of the Philippines. But more than the place, they realised they loved those beach days that merge seamlessly with the night, when time slips away and going home to change would interrupt the fun.
Their collection of sustainable swim and resort wear is designed to take you from boat to beach club, pool to piazza, or beach to bar in style. They create swimwear that makes you want to dive head first into your day in styles and shapes that suit different body types, destinations and agendas. The resort wear lets you dress your swimwear up or down so you’re ready for any adventure that comes your way.
Each of Ayla’s collections features bespoke prints inspired by experiences and places close to the founders’ hearts. Sustainability is important to the brand, and so for their latest collection they took inspiration from the world’s coral reefs. They will donate 1% of all sales to the non-profit, Coral Guardian, to support their coral regeneration work in Indonesia.

Writing with her heart on her sleeve, London’s Emily Laing draws inspiration from her own experiences to create music which is intrinsically human at its core. Her debut release “Hey It’s You” is a soft, folk-tinged ballad detailing the intoxicating sparks of a romantic encounter.
Inspired by traditional folk songs, Emily has always had a passion for storytelling. “Hey It’s You” is an intimate narrative from the young songwriter, filled with rolling drum patterns and languid guitar melodies. Sprinkled with a light patter of percussion, her delicate vocals float effortlessly over the soothing soundscape - creating a soft haven for her listener to reside in.
“It’s about meeting someone for the first time and that connection you have with them almost instantly” Emily explains. “How a moment can exist between two people and no one else knows about it”.
Finding fame with a song she wrote about Christopher Chope’s controversial vote in parliament regarding upskirting, the viral video went on to achieve almost 140,000 views on Twitter alone. The sharp increase of fans inspired Emily to write short songs and upload them to her social channels, connecting with fans across her musical platform. Finding a kinship with Scottish folklore, the young artist imbues her creations with a refreshing degree of sincerity and candour, embracing life's imperfections.
Set to release a single every month over the course of the year, Emily Laing is set to take 2020 by storm.

She’s photographed all kinds of special occasions, including Elton John’s Christmas party, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 70th and the Queen at home Buckingham Palace. She also loves to work more personally with families, children and individuals through portraiture.
Her sister Bizzy has recently become a crucial member of her team, bringing her own style and perspective to the duo, whilst making sure that a lot of laughs are had along the way.
She’s recently started balancing her event work with humanitarian and environmental photojournalism, hoping to give a voice to marginalised groups displaced by climate change through powerful visual storytelling, whilst attempting to shift the narrative to one of resilience, solutions and empowerment.
Regardless of the commission, working with people is where Lara is happiest, and she feels lucky that her career allows her to meet such interesting and beautiful characters in all walks of life.

🔫 Lucy Warhurst🔫 🍾🍾🥃🍾🍾🍸🍾🍾🍹🍾 Lucy Warhurst is the founder of Percival & Co, a new drinks brands which creates delicious, lightly alcoholic drinks.
It was a desire to find an alternative alcoholic drink that was refreshing and reinvigorating, but without the high ABV, calorie and sugar content of the usual offerings that led founder Lucy to quit her job in finance and start Percival & Co in 2018.
Growing up on a farm where they made elderflower cordial religiously every summer, the hedgerows seemed like the right place to start in her quest to create high quality, health conscious drinks to fill this gap.
After a lot of trial and error in her kitchen, the result is a range of botanically infused ‘Hard Tonics’. These have an ABV of 4% and are low in calories and sugar, gluten free, vegan friendly and made from 100% natural ingredients.
Find them at Ocado, Selfridges, Daylesford, 31 Dover and pubs, bars and restaurants nationwide.

Chloe was working in London as a celebrity assistant stylist, when COVID-19 hit meaning all red carpet events and photoshoots were cancelled and work came to a halt. After moving out of London and back home, it was time for Chloe to think of how best to utilize this time away from work. Having studied textiles it was now time to put practice into play. Cooked up from the depths of Suffolk and the height of quarantine, Chloe has now created her own bespoke t-shirt range. Made for men, women and children each design is hand-stitched and brightly coloured. Chloe designs a wide range of patterns and motifs inspired from works of Mattisse and Picasso. These titillating designs not only bring a whacky twist to the classic white T, but kudos from your colleagues on another boring zoom call!

🔫 Pip Durell🔫 👕💍👕💍👕💍👕 I’ve always been into style over 'fashion' and WNU really came about when I was working at Vogue when I needed to be polished and put together and a shirt was always a great ‘uniform’. The idea came about then and it wasn’t until 2 years later when I finally thought let’s see if we could make something cool, elegant, ethical and affordable – a piece that really could be for everyone. The whole point is that they arent' a statement, they are a classic - for anyone to throw on and get one woth their day, with or without thought - or anything underneath!
The Box actually came second - after Vogue I became the Jewellery Editor at Tatler and it was the same thing – I didn’t like the changing seasons and ‘trends’ but I loved the sentiment and meaning behind jewellery and so now help people create or find pieces they will treasure forever. With The Box it is mostly engagement rings which I LOVE - I am such a romantic and its so special helping someone create something so important. I guide them through the purchase, helping choose the stones and the setting within their budget. Also i do a lot or resetting of inherited family pieces which is so fun making them wearable again!
