All I want to do right now is lie out in the sun with a good book. I still haven’t scheduled any vacation time, but I often fantasise about escaping from the grips of my MacBook. And – like all fashion nutcases – this daydream also includes a sequence in which I pack for my beach escape.
I’d travel in style with one of Eddie Harrop’s weekend bags, which come in an impressive range of finishings and can also double-up as gym bags. Inside my carry-on you’d find J.Crew’s tie-dye bikini, a lightweight summer dress, minimalist leather sandals, Gap’s boyfriend shorts and handfuls of cotton tank tops.

1.61’s relaxed cotton-blend trousers would be ideal for flying in, and I’d have to wear Catarzi’s straw fedora in-flight because hats are a nightmare to pack. I really have thought it all through. So now the fantasy just needs to become a reality!
