SS 24 Lookbook
Co-Founder and Creative Director Kate Lessa
I live on a cliff, at the beach in Bermuda. It's a new thing and it's beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a better source of inspiration for Saint Holiday. My fiancé and I moved here in 2022 after splitting time between the island and New York City for several years.
I created Saint Holiday from my love of travel and vacation style. It may sound crazy but I love packing. Setting the mood, pondering the destination and putting things together in a way that I may not in my regular life. I was an accessories designer for many years before Saint Holiday so I have a lot of fun curating the jewels, sunglasses and bags that are going with me. There is a bit of an art to it I suppose, I like to balance the practical with the impractical. I always start with pieces that I love and can be worn several different ways and then I layer on some fun items to keep it creative and inspired.
I approach the design process for Saint Holiday with the same mindset as I do packing for a trip. I think about the new season, where I will be going and what I will want to wear.
