THE LIGHTWEIGHT JACKET

It may be the height of summer, but British weather is unpredictable by definition. When the forecast isn’t great, a pair of white flared jeans will lighten up black leather accessories and a modern PVC jacket by Ganni. Don’t get caught in the summer rain without one.

SUMMERTIME SPORTSWEAR

With Gucci holding the torch for retro-chic sportswear, pair your side-stripe track pants with golden platforms and a white Tee for statement summer evenings, or pair with trainers for and easy urban daytime look.
