What better back drop to inspire talented local fashion and accessory designers than the beauty of Bermuda. This week I am all for the love of local and set out to discover fab finds from some of our top designers. No matter what the time of year, it is always good to be reminded of our homegrown, hard-working creators – and to Buy Bermuda!
Bermuda Brights – Hamec and Fennel (depicted above)
Embrace colours that are reminiscent of fall while still keeping cool in the heat in this romper from Hamec, and orange clutch made by Fennel. Hamec romper, $215 available from Luxury Gifts (Rosewood Bermuda) and FH (Hamilton Princess & Beach Club); Fennel clutch, $70 available for purchase from Pulp & Circumstance, People’s Pharmacy, &Partners and The Tuck Shop.
This summer TABS launched a resort collection for women, and I am in-love with the bright colours and prints as well as the soft fabrics! How fun are the Electric Hibiscus Culottes, priced at $110 and available to shop HERE or at TABS’ flagship store at 12 Reid Street, Hamilton.
Coral Coast Clothing
Keep your man looking dapper in Coral Coast’s high-quality shirts with fun print details. My favourite? I love the contrasting blue and yellow of the blue plaid and sand dollar island print shirt. Priced at $155, this dress shirt is available to shop HERE or from Coral Coast Clothing located at 15 Front Street, Hamilton.
Treat yourself to an iconic little blue box from Davidrose containing one of their new pieces from their fine jewelry collection. A personal favourite is the 18K gold Alyssa Ring. Priced at $3,300, you can shop the ring HERE or by visiting their Hamilton location (at 47 Front Street, Hamilton) or their St. George’s location (20 Water Street, St. George).
I have always adored Dana Cooper’s colourful prints, and I’m in love with the Bermuda Bay Grape Aqua Scarf from her new collection. It’s the perfect accessory to brighten up an outfit, or drape around your shoulders in the evening. Priced at $100, the scarf is available to shop HERE!
Alexandra Mosher Studio Jewellery
Alexandra has just launched a new “Critters” collection and I literally cooed out-loud when I saw the Splash Collection Turtle Pendant. If you’ve been watching the water this summer you will have noticed that turtle numbers are on the rise! The pendant is priced at $795 and is available to shop HERE or by visiting Alexandra Mosher’s flagship store, located at 5 Front Street, Hamilton.
1609 Design is a treasure trove, and not just for their beautiful jewelry. Their Bermuda-themed tanks and totes are perfect for the beach, the boat, or just running around the island while squeezing out the last drops of summer. Pop into their Hamilton store (Old Cellar Lane, 47 Front Street, Hamilton) and take home your own Bermuda-inspired bauble. Tote bag, $30, tank, $35.
Novah swimsuits are amazing quality and so comfortable. I love the Exolux Cooper One Piece because you can wear it as a swimsuit or as a bodysuit under some fabulous layering for the coming fall. Priced at $120, it is available to shop HERE from Luxury Gifts Bermuda (Rosewood Bermuda and Hamilton Princess & Beach Club).
Complete your outfit with shoes made just for you with a pair of luxurious Italian sandals from Della Valle.
