Meet Sara Ramen, the face of our Sonnet campaign. We first stumbled across the Swedish-Italian model on instagram and after a good 20 minutes of scrolling through her feed oohing and ahhing we were craving an ocean dip followed by an Aperol Spritz. There was something about Sara we loved instantly - she has an authentic sense of style and doesn’t take herself too seriously. While in Australia, Sara splits her time between Sydney and Perth and the rest of the year you will find her perched under a brollie in Positano.
On Sunday, we will find you… Dipping jam + buttery toast into a cappuccino while reading my horoscope for the week to come.
What inspires you… The uncertainty of life. You never know what’s around the corner so you should make the most of every day - be with those you love, do what makes you happy - live!
Describe yourself in three words…. Empathetic, loving, intuitive.
How did you get in to modelling… I was scouted at the cinema when I was 11.
We adore your style, what are your go-to summer staples… Lots of swimwear in different styles, La Bottega di Brunella for beach days, men’s linen shirts to throw over vintage denim cutoffs or matching sets for when in a rush (I’m always running late), shorts and tops in summer colours, over-sized denim jacket for cooler evenings, different styles of gold hoops, sandals, a pair of Spring Courts, a straw bag and at least one basket bag. My alter ego comes out when in Italy so you’ll find me wearing lemon earrings, Missoni for the evening, crochet dresses, bralettes with high waisted skirts and easy to slip into silk dresses.
What’s in your beach bag… Towel, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, a book, water, lip balm and a camera.
One piece or bikini… High waisted bikini (especially when I’ve gone OTT with the pasta and nutella crêpes and biscotti aaaaand tiramisu!)
Favourite holiday destination… Positano (always), Ponza as it has a special place in my heart and Puglia (I have to go back for the fave e cicoria..!)
A summer memory you will never forget… My first summer in Ponza.
Natural beauty product you can’t live without… Water!
Your favourite sunblock brand… Avène.
Swim or sunbathe… Both!

Favourite summer blooms... King Protea.
Who do you most admire… Genuine, loving and kind people. People who aren’t afraid to stand up to others and what they believe in.
Much loved beach read… Currently reading and loving The Course of Love by Alain de Botton.
Favourite summer refreshment… The elderflower cordial that my grandmother makes in Sweden. For aperitivo a Virgin Mary if I’m not drinking alcohol or a Hugo spritz.
A smell that takes you back in time… Sunscreen, mum’s chocolate cake in the oven, Sweden in the summer, elderflower cordial and freshly baked kanelbullar... and that early morning smell coming from a boulangerie in France.
Instant pick me up… A shower or an hour of vinyasa yoga.
Current song on repeat… More Than This - Roxy Music and Blinded By the Light - Manfred Mann’s Earth Band aaaaand Head Over Heels / Broken - Tears for Fears.
You laugh the hardest when… In good company.
Words you live by… Always be kind - to yourself and to the people around you as you never know what they might be going through in life.
What do you love most about peony… The flattering cuts and beautiful colour palette.
