Summer Essentials


With the summer season in Cape Town being the ultimate motivator to live life to the fullest, we were on the lookout for beachwear that best represents our outdoorsy lifestyle – which is how we fell in love with Nicole Martine Beachwear!

We teamed up with the local luxury beachwear brand to inspire adventure, wellbeing and seaside playtime. We tested out our favourite must-have summer essentials based on practicality and quality, best suited for embarking on outdoor escapades this season.


Our top pick has got to be The Capri and Tahiti Neoprene Tote Bags, which doubles up as the perfect gym bag including a detachable neoprene pouch. These sexy beach companions are made from Neoprene making them durable, flexible, insulated, water and UV resistant! To top it off, the 100% neoprene bags are also 100% washable and fully reversible not only adding diversity but ideal for carrying sandy beach bats and wet swimwear and towels after hitting a little surf or a quick icy ocean dip.


Our go-to swimwear for beach activities is the classic Marie Louise white plunged one piece and the halter high neck Gabriel black one piece – minimalist style with maximum impact for playing volleyball, beach bats, surfing or even just a sunny beach stroll.


The La Flora Bandeau is the perfect bikini for a sunset SUP session or to whip on after your sweaty seaside activities to soak up some Vitamin D. The strapless top is ideal for avoiding tan lines whilst still feeling feminine with the sweetheart shape, centered bow and a gold clasp back detail.


Nicole Martine Beachwear embodies true island glamour and is the perfect gift for a friend or to spoil yourself this December. Their swimwear line incorporates material imported from Europe, manufactured in Mauritius and designed in South Africa.
