The Clements Ribeiro Swan SS13 collection for Evans is being fronted by homegrown bloggers Georgina Horne, Bethany Rutter and Callie Thorpe, aided by their US counterparts Nicolette Mason and Marie Denee.

In a statement, designer Inacio Ribeiro said: "After three collections in which we tried to create smart capsule wardrobes, including some serious eveningwear, we decided to come with a surprise turn by creating a holiday range that is playful and easy.

"The shapes are very casual and straightforward and the prints are full of wit. It is infused with the urban energy the bloggers inspired us with, but also ready for a week of fun in Rio."
