As London's grey skies subside and make way for spring, the desire to find the perfect swimsuit for the summer holidays becomes every girl's priority. Whether you need something for a romantic European minibreak, sailing around the Greek Islands or sun baking in your local park, Australian swimwear label LUCA has something for everyone. 

Good friends and business partners Clare Robertson and Kate Thomson set up LUCA when the hope of finding the perfect swimsuit fell flat. With Robertson from a design background and Thomson's skills in Marketing, they launched the label in 2010. The name LUCA originated from Robertson meeting an inspiring, effortlessly cool and easy-on-the-eye Italian man -someone who possessed the three traits that they wanted the label to represent.

LUCA was designed with the iconic eras of the 60's and 70's in mind with a modern twist so as to appeal to a wider audience. The current collection has a warm colour palette differing from the usual bright colours and prints of most Australia swimwear labels.

LUCA is stocked in Cheap Monday in Bondi and more info can be found online at http://lucaonline.com.au/

The release of the Rainbird

A couple of months ago I posted about a collaboration with the very talented band NOVA'S BASEMENT on the song "Rainbird".   

The song was originally written as a poem to inspire myself for the collection AW2011 Song of the Rainbird. Although this is how I start every collection, as this particular collection was hugely inspired by music, I thought it would be a lovely idea to have music written to go along with the words. 

Nova's Basement then wrote the most beautiful music, took a hop & a skip to the recording studio and the rest as they say is history....

Rainbird is now available to buy on i-tunes at http://bit.ly/lGCIT and even better - if you would like to see the song performed live go to http://www.novasbasement.com/ for details of the tour! Happy listening.......
