The We Are Handsome x New Caledonia capsule collection


Who doesn’t get inspired by beautiful beaches in exotic locations? Unfortunately for Australian’s exotic locations are usually a long plane ride away. That is not the case for New Caledonia, who have inspired Australian swimwear brand We Are Handsome to create a French Pacific inspired capsule collection.

We Are Handsome’s creative duo Jeremy and Katinka Somers created the exclusive print which was inspired by New Caledonia’s serene palette of lagoon blues and Isle of Pines greens. This ongoing partnership extends from when We Are Handsome shot their latest Euphoria campaign there earlier this year.

“Working with New Caledonia has been a dream for us. We’re no strangers to island paradise, but New Caledonia represents something completely unique as an experience and environment. A mere 2.5 hours from Sydney, the mix of both French and Kanak cultures is truly fascinating. Throw in the mix of beach, blue lagoons, and both palm and pine trees and you have something completely unique at every turn,“ said Katinka Somers, Director, We Are Handsome.

The limited-edition We Are Handsome x New Caledonia collection includes two styles in the brand’s signature scoop neck one piece and best-selling string bikini, both featuring a striking, print design reflecting New Caledonia’s European sophistication and spectacular island setting.

As we previewed on Instagram over the weekend, we have a piece of this limited edition collection and we think you should buy yourself one for summer, available on now. And start finding travel buddies for a girls or romantic trip for two to this nearby paradise, aka New Caledonia, for 2015. I recommend looking at long weekends next year.WAH_IsleOfPines01
