WELCOME…

Idon’t know about you, but I love this time of year: the balmy evenings, the fêtes, the tennis, the holiday anticipation and, most importantly, the opportunity to finally crack open your summer wardrobe. The novelty of wearing dresses and sandals without getting goose bumps never grows old for me. This week, we have a selection of picks to fit with the jubilant summer vibe. Womenswear editor Charlene Barton discovers a day-to-night dress that encapsulates the laid-back spirit of fashion right now, while beauty editor Emma Robertson chooses Korres’ Santorini shower gel, packed with flowers and fruits including a white grape that’s indigenous to the sun-kissed Greek island – a holiday in a bottle. For kids, you’ll find some irresistible flamingo-themed leather sandals that will take your girl from park to poolside, while acting food and wine editor Emma Sleight recommends the ultimate British strawberries – grower Marion Regan’s heart-shaped Driscoll Jubilee – which are at their very best in July: perfectly sweet and plump. Get them in for the Wimbledon finals this weekend. Enjoy!
