How 2 Sisters Started a Resort Wear Line Inspired by Summers in Spain
Meet Worme, by Melissa and Hannah Collett.
Wearing resort wear can make you feel like you’re permanently on vacation, and with summer coming to an end, we’re clinging on to every last seasonal outfit in sight. But good news: There’s a brand dedicated to making you feel like your summer best all year round. With a collection of timeless and elegant pieces, Worme is your new go-to for wearable resort wear 365 days a year.
Inspired by their summer vacations in Cadaqués, Spain, sisters Melissa and Hannah Collett have created a simple capsule of luxury pieces for any occasion. The Mediterranean town is known for its artistic legacy, which inspired many artists, including Dali, Picasso, and Duchamp.
“The older silk gets, the better it looks and feels,”says Melissa of the brand’s staple textile. “We wanted to create timeless designs that will still be in your wardrobe in 20 years. We still have pieces of our mothers from the ’70s that are as fabulous now as they were then.”
Worme’s visuals are inspired by cinematography and costume design from the ’50s through the early ’80s. “Melissa is also a photography agent working between London, Paris, and New York, so photography has played a big part in developing the brand’s identity,” says Hannah. With one capsule collection released, the year-old brand has already garnered an impressive following. DJ Siobhan Bell and Emily Oberg are among those who’ve been spotted wearing the label’s silk separates across the world, epitomizing the “Worme woman.”
Currently, Melissa and Hannah are working on their latest capsule collection, launching on Matches Fashion this week. “We are also working on an exciting unisex collection, as we want there to be something for everyone,” says Collett. “Whether you are in the city, sitting by the beach, or hanging out in your boyfriend shirt, we are a lifestyle brand that encapsulates the freedom of vacation while working just as well in the city.”
