Summer Escape—Exotic Tropics
For those heading off to warmer climates, these pieces are just the ticket to get you in a holiday mood.
And if you’re staying south, there’s nothing like an accent of bright colour to play off the neutrals, nudes and greys of a cold climate. Take a cue from Gavin Brown’s painting of a tropical temptress and find the perfect pieces for holidaying in style.
We know that local artist Gavin Brown is a talented painter, but he’s certainly a master of style too! Take inspiration for your summer escape with a canvas of rich reds, greens and magenta, and embrace the moment of the grand jewel. I wonder if Philip Treacy would consider fashioning a swooping parrot hat to complete our holiday look? A girl can dream…
For a sultry tropical getaway take inspiration from the Amazon with natural textures, like the wooden beads and woven straw on Jamin Puech’s ‘Leopoldine’ bag which ties in perfectly with a bold leather sandal like Sonia Rykiel’s gladiator flats.
We adore Rykiel’s new take on raffia, with patent leather piping and resin buckles. And they’re so light weight, the perfect holiday shoe to put on your packing list.
The classic stripe scarf from Rykiel is an essential holiday item. Throw over as a cover at the beach with some coloured frames from Cutler and Gross (we love the glittery cat-eye in black), or transform day to night by layering over your basics and adding a jewelled earring.
Bright pops of coloured crystal in the new Erickson Beamon range have us dreaming of lush greenery and sweet tropical fruits. Almost good enough to eat!
