There’s nothing quite like the feeling of freedom that travel brings. Oftentimes, it is amidst the whirlwind of adventure where we feel encouraged to slow down, pause and reflect. By allowing space to disconnect, we discover an opportunity to reconnect with the present moment, without a worry for what has passed or what may come.
This easy “let go and flow with it” energy is what inspires our garments creation, and why all of our styles have been intentionally designed with travel in mind. We’re all about carefree items that easily roll up in your luggage, ready for an instant look of relaxed, effortless beauty upon any destination’s arrival. Most of all, each style has been consciously curated for ultimate comfortability no matter where the journey leads us!
We take a moment with the inspiring travel sisters, Miren and Nerea Alós, who share our love for frolicking freely on endless open hearted adventures.
Tell us a little bit about you both. Where did you grow up and how did you end up where you are today?
We are Nerea and Miren, two Spanish sisters born in Valencia, a Mediterranean city where the sky is blue and the sun always shines. We grew up here, close to our family and friends. Our parents travelled the world when we were little and we have many memories of their adventures and many amazing photos our father took during their trips. He loves photography, so we’ve been familiar with cameras for as long as we can remember. We believe that those two passions of our parents made us end up where we are today, travelling the world together, having incredible experiences and creating content to share with our community. We move constantly but we’re based at home, surrounded by our family and friends, they are our greatest treasure and we love being close to them.
What do you love most about travelling?
What we love most about travelling is how it opens our mind. On each trip, in each country, we learn new things, appreciate different cultures, understand other ways of life and respect all people unconditionally.
What inspires you to adventure?
The feeling of freedom. Taking time to stop, to disconnect and connect with your inner self it’s a good opportunity to know yourself in a very different way. Also, getting to know new places is the most inspiring way to continue creating, to have new ideas.
Have you always enjoyed travelling together as sisters?
Yes, we always travelled together and we really enjoy it. Our biggest trip was in 2017-2018, we lived in Australia for a few months and then we travelled to New Zealand and Indonesia. That moment of our life will remain forever in our hearts as a gift and a master of life.
When you are not working, what is your favourite relaxation activity?
We love taking long walks with our puppies, reading good books, and listening to music… It’s curious how the simplest things are the ones we appreciate the most when we have time for ourselves. Nerea loves her coffee time in the morning and Miren loves practising yoga in the meantime.
What are your top 3 favourite places you have been so far, and why?
It’s a difficult question, but we have these three favourites in common: Formentera (Balearic Islands), Bali and Paris. We have very good memories together of those places and we won’t get tired of going back.
We love seeing you adventure in our designs, which is your favourite travel piece?
Nerea loves the Mishka Maxi Dress Hazelnut and Miren’s favourite is the Ishya Gown Soft Mushroom. They are so us!
What are your basic travel self-care tips?
Establishing a self-care routine while travelling is a priority for us because it helps us keep our energy, body and mind ready to create, work, explore and enjoy. That’s why it is very important for us to sleep well, we never go out while travelling and during the night we try to be calm and go to bed early. In addition, we always try to practise yoga and sports in the morning wherever we are, complementing it with a healthy diet like at home, full of fruits, veggies and water.
We don’t really like having the whole trip organised as we like to flow, to leave room for changes, to decide once at the destination what we really want to do. It is also important for us to travel slowly, we don’t need to see everything, we prefer to feel the places we visit as if we were from there, to have enough time to get to know the culture, to enjoy as locals, rest well and work.
What is it you love most about being women?
We just love it, especially being both women, since we share many things. Our power, sensibility, creativity…
What is some personal advice you would love to share with our readers?
We love this message and would like to share it with our readers:
“Pause. Slow it all down. Pause from your full calendar and long task list. Take a moment to simply be. To remind yourself that this is life, right here and right now. To reacquaint yourself with your pulsing heart and your incredible body that allows you to do all that you do. To remember that life is precious and fragile and should be lived in love. To remind yourself that whatever is happening or wherever you find yourself in your journey, it is all as it is supposed to be.” ~ Nikki Banas
We couldn’t agree more. It really brings us so much joy seeing you all embrace the feeling of freedom in our garments. Remember to share the inspiration and tag us on your beautiful adventures!
