If you’re a fan of vintage interiors and antique styles, then you’ll love Bode. Born in New York by the hand of Emily Adams Bode, the American designer’s taste for 19th- and 20th-century fabrics and quilts—and vintage fabrics’ longevity—is the basis of this textile-inspired clothing line that only started in 2016.

Bode recreates collegiate-inspired elements including regatta stripes, while herringbone wools are added to with patchwork and embroidery for tailoring that utile yet soft. Be sure to check out Bode’s chore coats too.

“I wanted to be the same person every day that I was on holidays,” founder Richard Jarman explains about his label, Commas.

Commas will make you want to stay in your swimwear all day, and you won’t feel bad about it. The luxury Australian label provides timeless garments of quality and style—from swimshorts to shirts and trousers, tanks and robes—for a complete resort wardrobe made to transcend the beach and enter the everyday. The party shirts and luxury walk shorts are superb.

Marine Serre is quickly becoming a household name in her native France. Following fashion internships with Alexander McQueen, Maison Margiela, Dior and Balenciaga, the Parisienne went on to win the LVMH-backed emerging design award in 2017 for her now established namesake label. And here’s why.

Serre’s style is an attractive tension of aesthetics: old pieces are reimagined into something new; utility items are refined and made elegance; athleticism collides with luxury design. Be sure to check out Serre’s Hardcore Couture line, which drops this season and features digital-graphic bombers, neoprene tops and psychedelic pointed boots.

If you’ve ever wanted to dress French, then Jacquemus is your next label love.

Helmed by Provence-raised Simon Porte Jacquemus, the eponymous label reimagined seaside fashion of the South for its debut last year, and in early 2019 ventured into French workwear. Describing his own personal style, Jacquemus says: "I am Simon, I like blue and white, stripes, the sun, fruit, circles, life, poetry, Marseille and the '80s."
