When it comes to style, we are all inspired by what we see; whether it be a well-dressed celebrity, a blow-your-mind catwalk presentation or even a fashionable passerby.

As fashion editors, we’re moved by all of the above, and then some. We’re exposed to under-the-radar labels; we get a first-hand look at collections months before they hit stores; we attend VIP events; we’re tapped into brands with chic-yet-cheap offerings and we shop — a lot.

To share our knowledge, FEMAIL brings you Style Swoon, a weekly series of the latest, greatest and on the verge. We hope this series will serve as a buying guide and point of inspiration for all.

Rita’s new line-up of looks for this season have been designed to be effortless and freeing for any of summer’s events, with ethereal, delicate tops, soft floral embroidery, asymmetric silhouettes and lightweight fabrications.

Rooted in a neutral color palette, blacks, whites and browns form the basis of the collection, while accessories and jewelry add dimension and embrace the carefree, bohemian spirit.

The collection launches in tandem with Rita’s new festival summer song, “Ask And You Shall Receive”, which was released on May 31st.
