Nicole Pollard and Lydia Collins look hot and steamy in Zimmermann's Swim Campaign. Shot by Simon Lekias, the campaign evokes a steam/locker room type of vibe. Models slouch sensually with slicked back hair and sweaty skin. I love how the campaign differs from others in that it does not resort to the bright, sunny, and beachy images that one would expect. Ruffles, florals and prints make each suit unique. I especially love the one shouldered printed bikini and the bright neon floral bandeau bikini. Take a peak at the campaign below.

Just discovered this fabulous photographer, Olivia Malone, on The Ones 2 Watch blog. She has shot for Foam Mag, Nylon Mexico, Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff and Mara Hoffman to name a few. Malone is inspired by "Road trips, cinema, the way the light changes throughout the day, Guy Bourdin, Godard, Jean Rollin, Jodorowsky, Alexander McQueen" according to her interview with The Ones 2 Watch. She hopes to work with Abbey Lee, Michelle Williams and Cat Power one day.
Malone was raised in LA and studied at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. She currently lives in NYC and splits her time between there and LA. Her bio explains that her images explore the transition between youth and adulthood and finding independence in such a time. She refers to the world as "fantastical and candid" and sources her ideas from her own experiences. Take a peak at Malone's website and blog. Her work is so diverse and utterly amazing.

Chicago based jewelry designer, Lindsay Rae, is making quite the name for herself. She began making jewelry at a young age and soon realized she could turn her hobby into something more after someone bought a piece she made right off her wrist. Her bracelets are made with a mix of colorful stones, skulls, and fun ornamentations. I adore the pave beads, especially the skulls! Her neon necklaces are perfect additions to any outfit this spring and summer. Take a look at her Etsy page and our mini-interview below!
How did you develop your style/look for your brand?
I think my style comes from things I see around me and colors I like. I love funky things and love color. I try to incorporate both into my line. I know not everyone likes a lot of color so I also do a lot of neutral tones as well.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I would say I get my inspiration from people and places around me. I read a lot of fashion magazines and get ideas from there as well.

Stacy King, Darren King and Jeremy Larson make up the band Sucre. I discovered the band via Nylon's Instagram and fell in love with Stacy's Southern bibbed dress and adorable straw hat. Sucre's first album, "A Minor Bird," debuted April 10th and Nylon had a release party for them. Stacy, the beautiful vocalist, is amazingly stylish. She mixes her Southern flair, being from Texas, into her every day looks quite well. Read her blog, here; she posts about touring, every day life and the new album. This fashionable Southern Belle is definitely someone to keep your eye on.
