But as flights around the world start to resume, and places start gradually to come out of hibernation, one cannot deny people’s enduring desire to travel, to start building new memories and to connect with one another. Current surveys show that many people are already planning their next trip (https://www.mckinsey.com). Hence we at Anna&I thought of combining the four most desired and vividly anticipated summer destinations by our clients and create a wardrobe and necessary attire for each one of the summer paradises.

Mesmerised by the house new 2020 collection, which once again is the epitome of luxurious and magnificent details and craftsmanship why not starting your day with “bathing suit printed with scattered trompe l’oeil Chanel costume jewels and worn with skinny cardigan jackets and wide pants in a fine-gauge knit or bandeau tops embroidered by Lesage with flowering branches of bougainvillea—that emblematic Mediterranean summer flower—that that can be worn under suits or veiled under sheer black chiffon blouses.” (Vogue) and which can we be so well styled from. day to night.
