Our Beach designer lets us in on what she is obsessed about right now, the type of girl that’s on her mind and the lifestyle she lives. I always find when designing a collection it’s important to create a story and a muse, here shes done just that.
It’s that time of year where swim becomes an important thought: summer vacation, weekend park hang-outs and the notion of being free. We love a good bikini — it’s a necessity.
Here at Free People we think about swim as a lifestyle — we daydream about the beach girl, so we wanted to find out what our fashion manager and buyer for swim and intimates are thinking about this summer.
We all need to get away sometime, step away and truly appreciate you and your surroundings. Maya Tulum Resort is located on the beautiful Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico; it is a seaside wellness retreat where you feel a true connection with the Mayan past.

The Yamba Story.
I live in the land of sun and sky, beaches and beauty. I moved to Australia from the UK just over two and half years ago and have based myself in Brisbane.
Just over three hours drive from home and I can be in Yamba. One of Australia’s best-kept secrets, same beauty and wonder as Byron Bay but imagine it before the travelers took over.
One pub perched on the cliffs overlooks the beach and a perfect place to sip beer and soak up the views. The home of Billabongs creator and a pro surfer attraction with the famous Angourie surf break just down the road.
Yamba calms me, it has a presence and a serenity that I search for and haven’t found anywhere else yet. Beautiful coastline, perfect for learner surfers like myself to practice my surf skills and to get tossed around by the waves.
Pitching a tent and spending a few days is all you need to unwind and escape from the city.
Yamba I love you with all my heart, one day when I have made my mark I will buy a plot near the beach and call you home.
