PRISM x Robert Storey, Rafael de Cardenas & @Harvey_Nichols

Take superstar architect Rafael de Cardenas (Surface to Air, Union), add renowned set designer Robert Storey (Vogue, AnOther Magazine, i-D, Topshop, Victoria Beckham, Nicholas Kirkwood SS12 windows), and what do you get? in-store pop-up to showcase the new SS12 collection from PRISM, that's what.

Dubbed the 'World of Prism', the installation features the latest range of hand-carved optical and sun eyewear, including frames made from blocks of Italian acetate dating back to 1849.
Urban/boho jeweller, Bex Rox (I love everything she does, but especially THIS), has also designed a limited-edition line of bright and metallic thread chains (including rose-gold detailing by PRISM's creative director and founder Anna Laub), to accompany the sunglasses - gunmetal prism pendants further enhance the architectural aesthetic of the eyewear.

The pop-up also introduces us to the brand's new range of sexy, Italian-made mix and match swimwear, with the emphasis on fit and quality (perfect for channelling that glam-starlet-meets-off-duty-model look on the beach. Each swimsuit is named after an inspirational holiday destination such as Italy's beautiful Positano, and Cali's Venice Beach, funnily enough there isn't one called Margate.

To complete the collection, PRISM has also created a stylish range of classic summer espadrilles for men and women, with buttery leather uppers in green and burgundy or black and silver, all with a natural jute rope wedge sole.

 With prices starting from £210-270 for the eyewear, £60-170 for swimwear, £95-185 for the sunglasses chains and £145 for the espadrilles, this collection is most definitely for the style conscious looking to make a statement this Summer.
