In partnership with JETS
There is nothing quite like the perfect summer and all of its tropes. Long, balmy nights, endless beach days with our friends, a new lover, a soundtrack to steal a heart, dancing until the sun comes up. It's all there. If, like us, your memories can be categorised by the outfits you wore, these moments are heightened by the perfect bikini, or that time you shimmied into a skirt over your swimsuit and proceeded to stay out all night. For model Paige Henry, the key to a perfect summer, and perfect summer wardrobe in turn, is pieces just like this. "One piece swimsuits that double as bodysuits are essential! JETS have the perfect styles for this look. Just add a skirt and kitten heels and you’re ready to go." She tells RUSSH.
Henry has been tapped by JETS as the new face of the brands new collection campaign for her ability to bring the collection to life through a contemporary JETS lense, epitomising luxury and aspirational resort living. The emerging model is an innate jet setter, seeking to build her career globally while living between Australia, New Zealand and London.
Inspired by island life in the Mediterranean, the collection is underpinned by natural elegance and a sense of modernity, each piece offering a sense of ease and luxury to a summer wardrobe. Here, Henry speaks with RUSSH on her most memorable summer, her wardrobe essentials, and her favourite pieces from the new JETS collection.
Tell us about your most memorable summer…
My most memorable summer would definitely have to be my first European summer last year. Now living in London, it’s so surreal to be able to pop over to Italy or Spain for the weekend.
What does a perfect summer look like to you?
Beautiful weather, good food, great company and holidays to look forward to.
Take us through your summer wardrobe essentials…
My summer wardrobe essentials include good basics, slip dresses, tube tops and foundational swimwear pieces – the new JETS collection is great! Pops of colour always find their way into my summer wardrobe.
What are the pieces that take you from beach to bar?
One piece swimsuits that double as bodysuits are essential! JETS have the perfect styles for this look. Just add a skirt and kitten heels and you’re ready to go.
Tell us about your favourite looks from the new JETS collection…
I’m obsessed with the Oia Sunset collection and of course the classic black JETSET bikinis – a wardrobe essentials.
What are the biggest differences between UK Summers and New Zealand summers? Which do you prefer?
Being in the UK during summer is great because Europe is only a few hours away, which you can’t beat. Aperol Spritz on an Italian beach? Yes please! But New Zealand summer will always have my heart, that’s where my family and friends are. We spend a lot of time on the lake and plenty of barbecues. The best part is I don’t have to choose, why not enjoy both!
