OUR VIBRANT VACATION EDITS
City day trip edit
When it comes to a whistle-stop weekend in the city, making the most of every hour is a must. That’s why finding pieces that seamlessly transition from casual day to after-dark is essential.
Start by choosing a versatile day-to-night dress that effortlessly carries you from one memorable moment to another. Embrace easy silhouettes paired with effortless accessories as you soak in the sights, explore galleries and linger over long lunches.
This season, citrus tones infuse our sundresses with fresh appeal, including our citron florals and monotone blooms that beautifully splice together.
To complete your city exploration wardrobe, opt for sneakers or sandals for comfort, and choose a sleek cross-body bag that’s sturdy enough for sightseeing but elegant for rooftop cocktails. A linen blazer also offers the perfect lightweight layer as the air cools and the city lights up.
Escape to the country edit
Swapping the city bustle for a slice of rural tranquility? A country retreat calls for clothes made for walking, indulging at local bakeries and wandering through markets.
For a stylish country escape, pack light with clever separates. Chase the sun in suitcase-ready shorts, throw-on-and-go blouses, and easy pull-on pants. The ultimate comfort-meets-style solution for your country vacation, elastic waists are abundant this season, including our linen pant, which offers a relaxed fit and flexibility. Pair them with printed tops to elevate your look and even wear them in transit, whether you are travelling by road, rail or sky.
A breezy dress is also a must-pack for a rural retreat. Look to natural fibres such as our traceable European linen to bring laidback luxury to an afternoon spent at a winery overlooking the vineyards.
Tropical Resort edit
Jetting off to a deserted island? For a bold splash of sun-soaked colour that can take you from beach to bar and beyond, it’s hard to resist this month’s uplifting shade of tangerine. As zesty as your poolside cocktail, this is a colour you can continue to bask in all summer.
Other blue-sky dressing essentials include a linen shirt, perfect for styling over denim during the day or wearing undone over swimwear by the pool. Also, remember to bring a spacious raffia tote for carrying all your beach essentials.
No relaxing vacation is complete without your downtime essentials and our iconic Waffle gowns, made from breathable, super-soft Australian Cotton are the perfect companion for warmer climates. Whether reading a romance novel poolside or wrapping yourself in one post-shower, these gowns offer ultimate comfort and luxury. Meanwhile, our slippers also double as the perfect pool slide.
Coastal Charm edit
Heading to the seaside? Laid-back beach breaks call for a splash of colour and versatile separates that will take you from day excursions to evening drinks.
Once again, a linen shirt is a must-have piece. This stylish staple pairs elegantly with denim shorts for a casual stroll along the boardwalk or over a swimsuit for a quick lunch break at the beach bar. If you’re exploring cultural landmarks or charming villages, tuck the linen shirt into pull-on trousers for a chic and comfortable ensemble.
You can also bring a touch of glamour to your vacation wardrobe with an elevated top, whether it’s a flowy printed blouse, a one-shoulder style or a tailored shirt. Pair it with your pull-on trousers or a chic denim skirt, and you’ll be ready to embrace everything from spontaneous dinner plans to unforgettable sunset views.
Off-duty denim, cotton tees and stripes are also a must beside the sea and perfect for day-tripping. And in the accessories department, raffia brings a beachy-keen vibe for seaside vacations. Our natural plait detail clutch is a favourite, adding charm to a dinner date at a local seafood restaurant and taking in unforgettable sunset views.
