The Smiths just want to have fun
Daisy Clementine and Starlie Smith write songs that will lift your mood. (Seeing them model H&M summer swimwear will also make you happy.)
The Smiths family – siblings Starlie, Lucky Blue, Pyper America and Daisy Clementine – has already taken the fashion world by storm, and now they’re planning on conquering the music industry, too, with their band The Atomics. And don’t be surprised if they succeed. Spending a day with the Smiths, it’s impossible to not be taken by their charm. We invited two-fourths of The Atomics – lead guitarist Daisy Clementine and singer and songwriter Starlie – to join our pool hangout in Beverly Hills. The sisters modelled our favourite swimwear for the season and talked about endless summers and sisterhood. (Click here to check out the full editorial!)
WHAT KIND OF SWIMWEAR ARE YOU INTO?
STARLIE: ”I am really obsessed with high-cut, backless one-pieces – the classic! In different colours. It makes you feel sexy but also a little bit more covered up, so you can be confident, as well.
DAISY: ”I like to mix it up, to wear a lot of different things. For tanning purposes, I like keep it small to avoid tan lines. I don’t often get to wear a one-piece but I am wearing one today, and it’s so fun. It’s a different kind of sexy. I like them all!”
HOW DO YOU WANT TO FEEL WHEN YOU PUT YOUR SWIMSUIT ON?
DAISY: ”I just want to feel like I am having fun. I don’t want to think too much about what I am wearing or how I look that day, because in the end, people don’t really care.”
STARLIE: ”I like to feel sexy, but also a little mysterious!”
WHAT DO YOU LOVE THE MOST ABOUT YOUR BODY?
STARLIE: ”I love my curves.”
DAISY: ”I love being tall.”
HAVE YOU ALWAYS BEEN CONFIDENT WITH YOUR BODY?
DAISY: ”I think so. Being a model, there are always expectations on being a certain measurement. But it has never been super easy for me to get to the runway measurements, because that is not my body type. But lately I have been appreciating the body type that I do have. I like how I look, you know?”
STARLIE: ”I used to be super confident, but there have been times, recently, when I didn’t feel confident. But now I am back! Mostly because we’ve been really positive and nice to each other, us sisters.”
DAISY: ”We’re all really supportive of each other.”
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SUMMER MEMORY?
DAISY: ”When we were growing up, our grandparents had a cabin in Montana. We used to go there every single summer. The house was by a lake, and the water was so clear. We would go swimming, take the boat out, or go pick cherries from the cherry trees...”
STARLIE: ”That’s what we did, every summer growing up. So that is my forever summer.”
