Tell us your favourite travel quote?

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mark Twain

Your Instagram has a quote which says every summer has a story to tell what will your story for 2018 be?

Well, I am getting married this summer so this is an extra special one so I have to say celebrating love and romance and I also think 2018 will be all about detaching from your phone whilst on holidays and taking in the beauty around you whether its watching the sun go down or taking a dip in turquoise waters.

Creative Director and Founder of LAZUL London, Nina Deckers

What is your top tip before trying on a swimsuit or bikini?

Get comfortable in your actual body not your aspirational body.

What's a must try from your collection?

Our Matisse Silk Kaftan is summer in a cover up.

Tell us the story behind your amazing LAZUL London Matisse prints?

We are constantly inspired by different artists, Matisse is definitely having a moment. His cut-outs are so exuberant and speak of bright joy-filled days so we thought these would sing on swimwear.

Formentera, Spain

Tell us about your must see beaches?

I dream of a private beach without a soul in sight, my personal favourite is Cala Saona in Formentera, it's the smallest of Spain’s Balearic islands.

Tell us your favourite travel quote?

An artist is an explorer.

Henri Matisse

What’s in your beach bag?

Everything! Books, make up, spray water, sunscreen (organic and chemical free), shades, a bikini or two. I’m a firm believer in making yourself comfortable, I do not travel light!
