For six weeks, The Shop at Bluebird is bringing the sunshine to gloomy London with its newest pop-up Postcards from Latin America, highlighting the creative minds of South and Central America. It’s a one-stop holiday shop with everything from colourful swimwear, flowy cover ups and floor-sweeping dresses to statement accessories. And since we’re still on staycation, our highlight of Postcards from Latin America is a Paula Mendoza Ego III choker. This 24kt gold-plated necklace designed by Colombian-born Mendoza is made in her home country and features cylindrical detailing that gives this piece of jewellery a strong architectural feel. If your location is somewhere dreamy and warm, wear it with a maxi white linen dress, but if you’re stuck in a trench coat, use this choker to amp up a classic black tuxedo look.

Shop the Paula Mendoza Ego III choker for £295 at The Shop at Bluebird, 350 King's Road, London SW3 5UU. The Postcards from Latin America pop-up shop is on until mid-June.
