While every A-lister seems to have been swanning around St Barth’s this month, we’ve been busy stalking their Instagram accounts for future summer wardrobe inspiration. Currently enjoying the most ‘likes’ are the following three labels designed by women who hail from all corners of the globe. Buy now or miss out.

As the name suggests, Kiini (kiini.com) make bikinis and nothing but. What’s more, every bikini is handmade, so no two are ever the same. Created by Turkish born, New York-based designer Ipek Irgit, the label has 164,000 Instagram followers and counts Cara Delevingne and ManRepeller’s Leandra Medine as fans.
Founded by Venezuelan-born Yosuzi Sylvester, her eponymous brand (yosuzi.com) makes sunhats with a difference. Using Iraka palm straw sourced from Venezuela’s Guajira desert, each hat is hand woven by local craftsmen according to Sylvester’s designs. Suki Waterhouse and Anna Dello Russo have both been spotted wearing these hip head-turners.
3. Dodo Bar Or
Launched by Israeli actress and designer Dorit Bar Or in 2009, this cult brand has the fashion pack clamouring for its s/s 2016 collection of pom-pom adorned dresses and kaftans. This season marks the first time the collection is available in the UK so don’t be surprised if it sells out at Matches, Selfridges and net-a-porter.com.
