iStyle: Cruise control
Take summer-holiday packing first-class with luxurious, bold and bright transitional pieces, says Rebecca Gonsalves
At this time of year the mind begins to wander. It's inevitable. Sadly, when the calendar on your desk is counting down to the few days a year when you can relax and really forget about the travails of modern life, it's also inevitable that your workload increases and the to-do list grows ever longer.
Those who live harried lives would do well to turn to Eres for suitcase stuffers that are not only functional thanks to clever technical fabrics, but fabulous to boot. Since it launched its first London boutique in October 2011, the brand has become a one-stop shop for those in the know, and in the money.
This season, as well as beautifully made maillots (the only thing to be seen in at the shore this summer), the brand has branched out into the sort of day-to-night cover-ups dream getaways are made of. Indeed, these images of French actress Bérénice Marlohe shot by Karl Lagerfeld show just how well the colours will work once the sun sets
The brand evidently has its jet-setting clientele firmly in mind with vibrant silk cut into kaftans, baggy sarouel pants and colour-block kimonos, while silk-muslin dresses are trimmed with pearls and threads of bright cotton. With rich, bright colours and long, languid lines, all the pieces are designed to be mixed and matched with swimwear from the brand's summer collection – just add delicate jewellery and fine white sand beneath your toes to complete the look.
