SUMMER IN THE CITY
The UK is in full heatwave mode and with London hotter than Athens today, the trains and tubes in the city are once again turning commuting into an unwanted Bikram yoga session.
We say enjoy the sunshine and take a walk to the office to make the most of the few days of summer.
At lunch time, make use of the city’s open spaces – why leave them for tourists? Or find that quiet nook near your office to escape the heat and the crowds.
If you don’t want to look like your heading to the beach, opt for Black or Navy, both of which look stunning in the sunshine.
A lightweight, sleeveless shift like our De Beauvoir Black is perfect for keeping cool and staying stylish. You’ll appreciate the luxury cool-to-the-skin lining on a hot day and the high performing poly-twill fabric is especially designed to reduce creases while being breathable and with a quality feel and look. Also available in Bisque and Navy.
The Northcote Dress is a bestselling style and it’s just back in stock. The flattering cut with its illusion waist – designed to look like a top and skirt or ‘twosie’ – makes it a winning style year-round. We think the sleeves also make it ideal for days in air-con offices and when less flesh is best.
The Carnaby Dress comes in a range of colours. It’s a classic shift with a twist and we think it is a fun style for a summer. Now, just in and new this season, is the Carnaby in Navy, which is designed to match back with Jackets from Le Marais Capsule.
AND WHEN YOU WANT TO ESCAPE
