This incredible woman knows no bounds! Mother to her two gorgeous children, the founder of Sirene Skincare, a talented photographer & creator of the quarterly Wildling Magazine - it is safe to say that Rebecca Lindon is a multi-talented, multi-faceted woman and that is our kind of woman! Rebecca & her beautiful, curly-haired daughter Eve, recently shot our Little Auguste campaign around the streets and beaches of Mallorca - the Spanish island they call home. We loved getting to know Rebecca and know you will too.
Tell us a little bit about your life and your many many talents.
It’s fair to say that life is very busy and I often feel like I’m moving from one thing to another without any time to rest. That said, I’ve learned that small pockets of time to breathe and be mentally still can help immensely. The key is doing things that you love and are passionate about and sharing that with my children. They see that I believe in what I do and find great joy in it. We live a very positive lifestyle here on the island, everything I do blends together in an appreciation for the beauty of nature.
Being from Australia we have to say, we are so intrigued by what it’s like to live on one of Spain's most beautiful islands. Tell us more.
I regularly stop in awe as we move around the island - the way the light hits the ocean, the majesty of the mountains, the way the food tastes or watching the falcons play above our house… all of it makes me feel so connected to the land here.
The downside is that this beauty brings masses of extra people here each summer and with that comes extra traffic, trash, damage to the beaches and coastline and also crime. Many islanders choose to leave during this period and others make their living during these few short months. Housing costs are astronomical and many young Mallorcans will never be able to afford to own their own property here.
You are the mother of a beautiful son & daughter. How have you found the experience of motherhood?
I found the early years very difficult and I struggled with losing my sense of self. The children’s father and I separated six years ago and I went through a period of finding myself again and establishing a way that I could be both a mother and a woman in her own right. For me, this is happiness!
Your new Skincare brand is vegan & sourced both locally and ethically. Is this something you look for when working with other labels?
Yes absolutely! My connection to the land and my desire to be of service to women is how the skincare range came to be. I am trying to encourage women to move away from chemicals and return to the bounty and opportunity for healing that Mother Earth has to offer us. It is my aim to remind women of their natural beauty and offer skincare that works holistically through ingredients that stimulate female wellbeing as well as working to protect and hydrate the skin.
Similarly when I shoot for women’s brands, I tend to attract and enjoy working with labels that are raw and feminine and respect our planet. Unattainable beauty and fashion are so damaging for women.
The photos of you and your daughter Eve in matching Mummy & me Auguste were so beautiful. What drew you to working with Auguste?
Again, it’s the vibe of natural, wild beauty that draws me to a brand. I want to be able to run around fields in a dress and throw it off quickly to jump in the ocean. I want to show that no piece of clothing should be kept perfectly pristine in a wardrobe - it should be worn like life. It should be removed frantically by a lover on a beach at night, it should be tied in a big knot at the waist when the heat gets too much, it should slip off a shoulder, be hooked into knickers when you need to climb down some rocks to a secret cove. This is how I wear my clothing and I love brands that don’t take themselves too seriously when it comes to fashion. Auguste gives me that feeling!
What was your favourite piece from our latest collection & what was Eve’s?
Eve loves the maxi dresses that fall to the floor - it’s rare to find maxi’s for girls. For me it was the vibrant pink of the Seraphina Midi - bold and subtly sexy. I feel more able to wear bright colours in Spain!
