Dylan Kain is the luxe accessories label worn by cool girls everywhere. Margot Robbie, Kendall Jenner and Kaia Gerber are all counted in the Dylan Kain fan club.

We caught up with one of the sisters behind the brand – Bonnie Davis – to hear a little more on the new collection, her inspiration and to find out what it’s REALLY like to work with your sister...

So, tell us a little about what it's like to work with your sister...
Working with my sister was a total nightmare, LOL! We are two strong personalities with firm opinions and that isn’t always a good mix in a business sense. It resulted in some hilarious fights – like storming from a taxi at a red light – the kind of fights that you have to laugh about later. We decided early on that it would be best if we didn’t work so closely together, but she is still a main muse for each and every design …  She has great style and if I can’t see her wearing it I know it isn’t DK.

What would you pin as your ‘breakthrough' moment?
It’s still coming! We are working towards some big things internationally. I always say that when I’m sipping gin and juice on my private yacht I’ll know we’ve had the breakthrough.

Who is the Dylan Kain woman?
The Dylan Kain woman is a girl on the go, who has a little something extra, an easy sexiness, an effortless approach to her style. She’s undone, though elegant, relaxed with a little rock ‘n’ roll edge. She needs classic accessories that are timeless but that also convey her strong personality.

What are you completely obsessed with right now?
Face masks. My good friend gives me the latest products from Japan and South Korea. There are these ones that I take on flights – they heat up and release a relaxing scent. I love to put on some eye cream, a podcast and let the mask do its work.

Tell us a little about this collection what inspired you? What were you listening to / watching / channelling?
I lived in France for two years in Bidart, close to the seaside town of Biarritz and would travel to Paris regularly. The girls there are all beautiful, but it is more their state of mind, their vibe that is inspirational. For this collection, Les filles de Paris (The Girls of Paris), I designed the pieces I wanted to see girls wearing on the streets of Paris – it's my version of Parisian style.

What is your favourite piece in this collection and why does it stand out for you?
I love The Little Lou Card Holder, named after Lou Doillon, Jane Birkin’s daughter. It’s in beautiful Italian nappa and comes gift boxed – it’s the perfect gift – for yourself. And, I also love the Parisian Party Bag – with the chain and our new medallion hardware, it’s easy to dress up or down.
