Nothing exudes the start of a new season and quarter than a brand-new column – which brings us to the here and now, fellow readers! We’re excited to announce the first edition of Want, Need, Read, Wear – the weekly feature will encompass the top pick from our team for each category. WANT is a current must-have and the kind of product which when we decide to ‘sleep on it’ makes an appearance in our dreams and is one of the first things that cross our minds when we sip that first cup of coffee in the morning. NEED is as you may assume a pure necessity – whether it’s that *one* it bag or accessory we’re spotting everywhere or the latest Amazon buy we plan to reorder. READ isn’t limited to a book, (although we’ve got a handful of best-sellers we’re dying to share with you) it can be a recent article we’ve bookmarked or the latest newsletter we subscribed to and read on our way to work. Lastly, WEAR will introduce solely fashion purchases, including but not limited to that one pair of white trousers we must add to our summer collection or those just under $10 heart shaped sunglasses available on Amazon Prime, and happen to be a fraction of the original YSL pair (because you know we love a bargain!). Let’s jump right into it, shall we?
Ever since we came across these artisanal made woven-leather tote bags by Dragon Diffusion, they’ve been a must when packing for a holiday at the beach. This year, the brand launched their signature bags in a light cream shade and we’re one step away from hitting ‘buy now’. The leather material is soft and flexible enough to store it in your luggage (without losing its shape) or to wear it as a carry-on.
Summer = heat = sweat – amirite? After the big trend of natural deodorants that are aluminium-free and environmentally-friendly, there’s a new player on the market and it’s by Kosas, our go-to for clean makeup and beauty. This AHA serum deodorant keeps you feeling clean and fresh thanks to the 3 different acids used to fight sweat, including shikimic, mandelic and lactic acids. Top that with aloe vera and hyaluronic acid and you’ve got yourself this easy applicable summer staple!

Founded by Dutch stylist Marloes Hoedeman, Love Stories features lingerie, sleep, swim and ready to wear that’s easy to wear with no frills. Although this shirt is considered to be sleepwear, you can easily wear it outside the house paired with white jeans, denim shorts or a silk skirt for a more dressed up look. We love the pink polka dot contrasted with the rust orange – the material guarantees to leave you feeling comfortable, feminine with a luxury feel, but without the high-end price tag.
