Our latest spring/summer collection Holiday will transport you to a European summer, with bright florals, ripe fruit, and seaside moments. That's why we've asked Euro veteran, jet-setter and photographer, Ashlyn Lincoln, for her favourite European destinations and what new season Kip&Co product reminds her of it.
Ashlyn has recently taken her love for travel, the beach and European sun to create @1800nostalgia; a curated capsule of film & digital prints available to purchase. So between your bedsheets, wardrobe and walls, we're bringing an everlasting Euro summer to you!
1. Valldemossa and Deià, Mallorca, Spain
You'll go to Mallorca for the beaches of the east coast, but if you're anything like me, you'll stay for the lush greenscapes of the west. I fell completely in love with the enchanting countryside-meets-seaside villages. Mentally, I'm always that girl on the chair in the background below - except I'm wearing the Kip&Co Vine Linen Longsleeve Jumpsuit.
2. Cefalù, Sicily
Nowhere hits the sweet spot between rugged and sexy better than Sicily, and Cefalù simply oozes it. Definitely try to stay in the old town if you can! The Cape Cod Kantha Throw screams Cefalù in all the best ways.
3. Taormina, Sicily
My ego finds solace in knowing that I went to Taormina before season two of The White Lotus aired. It's even more spectacular IRL than on the screen. The old town is one of my favourites in all of Europe - you absolutely must eat dinner at Osteria da Rita, followed by dessert of granita gelato con brioche at Bam Bar (they even offer gluten free brioche - what?!) I'll see you there next July - just look for the girl in front of the iconic tiled wall at Bam Bar, wearing the Cape Denim Jeans (check the sweet embroidered seashells - obsessed!) and scoffing local strawberry granita.
4. Cinque Terre, Italy
A slightly less popularised and more charmingly rugged alternative to than the Amalfi coast. The cliffside hikes between the five seaside villages are absolute heaven. This photo captures my favourite of the towns, Vernazza. I haven't been there since 2016, but I still dream about its pastel facades all the time. The Deep White Organic Cotton Quilt Cover & sheets remind me of slow, easy mornings and sun-drenched afternoons exploring the fishing villages.Not to mention all the fresh seafood... my god, the SEAFOOD!
5. Amalfi Coast & Positano, Italy, OBVIOUSLY.
A total hedonist's paradise - it's a European summer cliché for a reason. And it's also obviously disgustingly photogenic. If I was to style and shoot a tablescape for a particular brand (WINK WINK NUDGE NUDGE) on a romantic Positano balcony overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean, I'd definitely need the Summer Lily White Tablecloth. Anyone in the market for a content creator in Italy next July? ANYONE?!
