Laura from This Island Life is someone who knows how to travel in style. She's a good friend of mine (we've worked together at two different agencies in our previous careers in adland) and I have lived vicariously through her exotic adventures for years now. There's nothing nicer than a creative collaboration with one of your closest pals - so it was a pleasure to give Laura some Ms. Kensington pieces to take with her on a trip to beautiful Bawah Island in Indonesia. A private island resort just a short journey from Singapore. See how Laura styled our London Print Slip and Ivory silk cotton robe to perfect lounging around 'island style' in her beach bungalow next to the most stunning aquamarine paradise.

"I’ve owned some beautiful lingerie over the years, but nothing as beautiful as these pieces. While I usually focus on swimwear and resort wear, it’s become apparent that I’ve been neglecting my outfits in the bedroom. Now usually island life calls for little more than your birthday suit, but there’s something so luxurious about slipping on a delicate silk slip on a balmy island evening. So when I was planning my outfits for my trip to Bawah Island in Indonesia, I made sure I had nocturnal adventures covered too."
"I’m usually straight into a bikini when I wake up, but on Bawah Island, all I wanted to do was swan around my beach bungalow in this silky ensemble. "
The bush fire situation happening here in Australia right now is devastating. It is hard not to know someone who has been affected. It is hard to watch rolling footage of what looks like some kind of futuristic apocalypse and not feel utterly heartbroken for the people, animals and land affected. Now is not the time to talk about fashion or try and selfishly promote a business while others are suffering. It is the time to donate, help and heal however possible.
Before Angie Kent joined the madness that is the Bachelorette 2019 I thought I’d send her some Ms. Kensington lingerie and a bespoke love letter to help her feel inspired and confident on the journey to find love. I was thrilled when Angie reached out to tell me she had worn her London Print robe everyday on set.
There isn’t a planet B. Fashion is meant to be forward thinking and ahead of the curve and yet it is one of the most heavily polluting industries contributing to #climatechange. We must stay committed to working towards better practices for people and the planet.
