    • Melissa's Moodboard - The Snake Print

      This month it's time to take a look at one of the most iconic natural prints that features in the SS16 collection - snake print.

      Whether your style is more classic or more trend focused, a snake print is something that you will always be able to incorporate into your outfit, either with statement accessories or with striking pieces.
      The crucial rule when wearing snake print is that less is more - which with luckily with swimwear and beachwear is a pretty easy rule to follow. You could go for the stunning Angelina floor length dress which is the perfect versatile piece to take you from a day at the beach to a dinner in the evening, or go for Melissa's trademark style the Miami to keep your look minimal, yet chic.

    • Melissa Recommends - Tiamo Resort, Bahamas

      If you follow either Melissa's personal Instagram or our @melissaodabashdesign Instagram account it will have been hard to miss that some of the Odabash team spent last week in the sunny Bahamas shooting next year's SS17 collection look book.

      To say the shoot was a success would be an understatement and although Melissa is passionate about her designs and an excellent model director thanks to her year's of experience in that profession, it's the accommodation that she can't stop talking about since her return.

      Described as soon as she walked back into the office yesterday as 'a hidden gem' we knew we would have to quiz her and find out a little bit more about what made this place so magical...

    • Destination Looks - April

      In April, there's only one destination to visit and that's California.
      Thanks to the wonderful extravaganza that is Coachella festival, every fashion and music fan will be jetting over to the States and heading to Palm Springs for two fun-filled weekends in the sunshine.

      However, it's a long flight to get to the West Coast of the US and so in our opinion, it's worth checking out some of the other locations California has to offer; particularly ones with beaches, as you won't find any oceans in Palm Springs desert!

      If you are flying in and out of LA, Venice Beach is perfect for those wanting to experience a real taste of the vibrant, local lifestyle, whilst enjoying a gorgeous sandy beach that stretches for over three miles. Alternatively, Malibu is a haven for any water-sports fan and comes with a reputation for some of the best waves on the Californian coast.
      To make packing for your trip that little bit easier, we've already hand-picked some outfits that suit the style of the destinations you may choose to visit.

    • Flashback Friday with Slim Aarons

      To celebrate the opening of the Slim Aarons 'Poolside' exhibition at the Getty Images gallery in London, we thought we'd do a little Flashback Friday in tribute of this iconic photographer, who's also a favourite of Melissa's.

      It was hard to choose a top five, but here are the vintage snaps we thought were the chicest from this dreamy, bygone era...

    • Melissa's Moodboard - The Ikat Blue Print

      So far we've focused on the animal-inspired Lizard print and the Palm print which was influenced by plants and nature. Now it's time to look at a more abstract print and this month Melissa spills the beans on what inspiration led her to design the Ikat Blue pattern.

      Seen on the Cancun Triangle bikini and Janeiro Bandeau bikini for SS16, this exclusive print adds an injection of colour to your beach wardrobe and is versatile enough to be worn with a variety of beachwear.
