This time the coastline was wild. Turquoise waters edged by white sand and surrounded by jungle. This time I found myself in paradise where there was a sense of freedom, adventure and something a little bit sacred. The perfect setting for the The Beach People’s second campaign Volume #2


After curating their first campaign COTE D’AZUR | Volume #1 last year it was more than exciting for me when The Beach People wanted to continue our creative adventures. Emma and Victoria the talented sisters behind the original round towel had yet again created something really special and with this collection I knew there was no better place then the cobbled stone walls of the rambling and rustic Coqui Coqui for the back drop to their beautiful new designs. With it’s raw beauty and Yucatan soul brought to life with love by owners Francesca Bonato and Nicholas Malleville it is very much a Beach People kind of place.

To help tell this story who better then my nomadic friend Hanalei Reponty whose travels are influenced by her unconditional love for the ocean, a deep respect for the earth and a strong connection to family. Beautiful inside and out.

Along with the team at The Beach People I am very proud to share with you the first instalment from this campaign to launch Volume #2.
