We have been following the sun for as long as we can remember. Growing up by the coastlines of St Barths, Argentina, the Balearic Islands and Australia, while we were on other sides of the world, we would later learn that our summers were quite similar: balmy days spent snacking on fresh watermelon, building sandcastles, snorkeling, spelling our names on the sand with seashells, and napping under striped beach umbrellas. Life was uncomplicated, innocent, fun.
Oddly enough for two girls who love the sunshine as much as we do, we moved to New York (yes, the city where it’s freezing six months of the year) to chase our dreams of a career in fashion. New York does incredible things to a person: it cements a certain level of drive, tenacity, tolerance. It’s a city where creativity lives, making it beyond empowering and eye-opening to be surrounded by such a diverse, interesting group of people on a daily basis. Not only did it bring us unprecedented inspiration, but little did we know that it’s where we would meet each other and become friends. It’s funny how life happens like that.
It was in New York that our desire to chase the sun became stronger – counting down every chilly month until it was summer and we could escape to our favorite destinations, from Italy to Jamaica, Turkey, Mallorca, Greece, France, Mexico, or the Bahamas, for much needed Vitamin Sea. Each trip, we’d come back inspired by the people we met, cultures we experienced, and local brands we discovered along the way. It got to a point where we wanted that feeling to last all year round. So we created Golden Edit.
From its inception, we knew that we wanted each and every Golden Edit item to be special because after all, you’ll be making memories while you wear them. So we made a pact to curate a mix of emerging and established brands that celebrate travel, craftsmanship, quality, and sustainability.
Through Chronicles, we get to indulge in all things summer, bringing us – and hopefully you – endless inspiration and the desire to continuously discover. Our dream for Chronicles is for it to become a platform for learning, sharing, seeing new places through our muses eyes, and hopefully seeing them for yourself.
The images you see below are just a snapshot of some of our recent travels. We’ve been so incredibly lucky to experience so many different cultures, meet interesting people and have our minds blown over and over by some of the places we’ve visited, and we can only hope Golden Edit leads to more of those experiences that will one day be bottled as precious memories.
So welcome, and nice to meet you!
