Letter from The Creative Director

I am thrilled to be introducing our Antibes collection as we celebrate the beginning of Spring. Marking a time of renewal, our latest collection offers you the most perfect pieces to start creating your ideal style for the new season. My personal favourite is our incredibly gorgeous abstract hibiscus print that you’ll see across several styles.

In the spirit of Antibes— where we were lucky enough to visit whilst capturing this campaign—the Blue Illusion team shares with you their favourite markets across the globe.

I truly hope you enjoy this vibrant, feminine collection as much as we enjoyed creating it for you!

Shopping at farmers markets are an amazing way to support local farmers, makers and communities. This week our team shares their favourite farmers markets from across the globe.

DONNA - Le Marché Biologique Raspail market was an unforgettable experience for me, I love love loved the galette de pomp de terre!


NICOLE - South Melbourne Market has been my little weekend treasure. It is the quintessential village market, a place where people come not only to purchase fresh food, but to meet at great nearby cafes and shop. My go to is La Central Spanish Deli & Bodega for preparing for a night of tapas and wine with friends over.


MEG - I love Spitalfields for its bustling energy and variety.  A great place to find authentic vintage and antique pieces, clothing, art, and amazing street food. A fantastic day out in the heart of East London.


SHADI - If one is to see just a single place in Iran’s capital, then the Tehran Grand Bazaar is the place.


INDIANA - Every Friday morning I would look forward to The Beaches Market on the Northern Beaches. Paddy the Bakers, Mama Kombucha and La Boite a Fromages are my go-to stalls. On the way home, I squeeze in a quick dip at Narrabeen and it’s the perfect start to a day!


RAPH - One of my favourite markets from childhood is La Rochelle, found in a small coastal city west of France. I remember the warm sun, colourful produce, fish and warm smell of fresh pastries… While walking through the noisy lanes I would start to imagine what I could make for lunch.
