TO DYE FOR

Founder/creative director Rebecca Hessel Cohen's look inside Tulum. 

The people, the colors, the aesthetic. The ultimate bohemian barefoot luxury. It's the only place you can actually detach from NYC and become one with your spiritual self.

Sunhats, gauzy coverups, and a huge bag of Loveshackfancy, and pareos that I buy at the coqui coqui store and a few great bikinis.

I travel with one of my oldest friends and collaborators, Dean Isidro, who is an incredible photographer. We love when my mom comes with us as well, she is an amazingly talented creative director. We are usually doing photoshoots or indigo dying some of our Loveshackfancy pieces for new seasons. I came to Tulum several times for shoots when I was a fashion editor as cosmo, and I fell in love with it. Now we come to decompress, and get inspired. There is something about the air, the ocean, and the people in Tulum that is constantly inspiring. We always leave with incredible ideas and beautiful creations.

I grew up spending my summers by the beach in Bridgehampton and traveling to different beach locations, so its always been a very important part of my life. I love the beach, and everything about beach culture. We would have long lazy days in the sand and ocean, bringing lunch and even dinner, falling asleep under the stars and the full moon. For us, summers at the beach are the best time of the year.  We travel all the time throughout the year so that we can find summer somewhere! And Tulum is one of our favorite places to find it.

We always stay at Coqui Coqui. You wake up with the sunrise and fall asleep with the crashing waves. There is no air conditioning and very little electricity, you are truly going by nature’s clock. From the moment you arrive you never want to put your shoes back on. You meet the most incredible people  who always hang out at the beach in front of Coqui Coqui. This is where we met Lais and Daniel, who threw us a fabulous lunch party, and Rebecca and her boyfriend, the acroyoga couple.

The Gypsy Lounge at Gitano and full moon parties on the beach and late nights drinking wine and gazing at the stars. Dinners at Posada Margherita, all the pasta is homemade, and the seafood is so fresh and delicious and Hartwood for ribs or whole fish.

The candles, bath oils and perfumes from the perfumery of Coqui Coqui. My favorite is Tobacco. We also love the line Hacienda Montecristo, a line by Francesca Bonata who owns Coqui Coqui. She makes all of her pieces in Mexico and they are absolutely beautiful handmade clothing and accessories.   I love her handmade hammocks and beach coverups. Never leave without buying a beach hat and beach bag, and also always hope to find some of her amazing vintage bag finds as well. Also the boutique at Posada Margherita is one of our absolute favorites, and is owned by Daria Hines who splits her time between LA and Tulum. She has the best coverups, bikinis and beach essentials. xx Rebecca
