Simon Porte Jacquemus is undeniably the master of summer. Born and raised in the small town of Mallemort in the South of France, his collections are steeped in memories of those languid months in the country.
As a CEO, mother of two and frequent globetrotter, Rana Florida lives in the intersection of business, art, architecture, creativity and culture. But what of fashion, and where does it feature in her life?

Sartorial rules are relaxed, the days grow longer, and workday slides effortlessly into happy hours on the patio.
