(A)muse in Bondi

Our French muse, Michaela Thomsen traveled to Australia for a little getaway with her (super talented) photographer boyfriend, Virgile Texier. Talk about a dream team. Michaela's look has "natural French beauty" written all over it and Virgile sure knows how to capture just that. The couple explored Bondi, hopping from beach to beach, exploring neighborhoods and parks, and shooting film all week. Michaela nonchalantly threw on her favorite Amuse pieces and looked flawless, always inserting her French twist into the Australian landscape. The Aussie sun bronzed her skin and made her light hair and eyes pop against her black and white ensembles. Quintessential Parisian stripes topped off her (already perfect) look. It's pretty safe to say that we're infatuated with this duo!

DAZED & AMUSED PARTY

Last Friday we kicked off the festival weekend with our Dazed & Amused Party at the AMUSE House in Downtown Palm Springs! Guests headed straight to our Bikini Bird Bar featuring Mo√ęt & Chandon MYO (make-your-own) Mimosas, and cooled off with signature cocktails featuring SVEDKA Vodka and brews thanks to our friends at House Beer. Sam Blacky kept the party going with her upbeat DJ set. Girls lined up outside our casita to get thier hair done by our friends at Joico. Babes in Amuse suits enjoyed the pool and soaked up those Palm Springs rays and guests enjoyed taking photos and videos at our photobooth all afternoon!

AND to wrap up the evening, we presented a surprise performance by our girl ROZES (singer of the hit song "Roses" with The Chainsmokers) at the Foray Collective House! Brody Jenner DJed while ROZES' voice captured the attention (and the hearts!) of all in attendance.

Ocean Eyes

As the temperature rises, we're getting to the beach more and more! Lately, we've been inspired by shades of blue and white, and the combination of the two together. Not only have we been drawing inspirtion from our surroundings - the sky, the waves crashing; but also retro classics like vintage denim paired with a white tee. We're taking this trend a little further with modern beach pieces, like open-weave kimonos, breezy dresses, and gauzy sets. We spent the day with Heather and Malgozata capturing our favorite looks with our favorite scenery as the backdrop.
