Eco-conscious swimwear brand allSisters has revealed their summer 2016 campaign, continuing its mission of eco-friendly beachwear.

This new collection features styles inspired by the work of American artist Sol Lewitt, known for his geometric drawings and sculptures, and by the sports-chic swimsuits of the 80-90s. This has resulted in clean lines and unexpected cutouts in black and white; the favourite colours of founder Patricia Caballero. She is a great example of an eco-conscious fashion businesswoman who has created a brand responsibly, with low impact on the environment and society.

Firm believers in sustainable business models, allSisters emphasises the use of recycled materials and innovative, high quality ethical codes of business behaviour. They are convinced that fashion and sustainability can go hand in hand, and are working hard to find sustainable materials to produce a responsible brand that can compete in the high fashion industry. For this campaign, they have focused on the message of sustainable fashion, featuring hashtags like #cleantheoceans or #saynotoplastic.

Their fabrics contain almost 80% recycled polyamide to create a soft and durable material of very high quality. After many tests with different body shapes in the search for a common pattern that feels good for all, they have created designs that enhance the female body, giving women the power and confidence to feel sexy, in and out of the water.

allSisters is the perfect brand for all women who live an active life, love nature, fashion and sports, but who also care about the environment.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
