All through August, we’ll be shining a light-weight in your summer season fashion. Right here’s how Pleasure Montgomery, British Vogue’s senior commerce author, is spending the summer season, plus what’s in her suitcase…
What’s your important summer season buy—and why do you like it?
As fundamental because it sounds, I couldn’t reside and not using a good pair of sun shades through the summer season months. When chosen properly, they’ve the flexibility to make any ensemble really feel infinitely extra directional and/or polished. This season, I’ve been inseparable from Victoria Beckham’s yellow-tinted aviators, which my mates name my “’80s sheriff sun shades.” I take it as a praise.
The place’s a spot you like to go to—and what makes it particular to you?
My husband’s dad and mom have a bit of home on the Isle of Wight, a small island off the south coast of the UK. We received engaged there and ended up barely stranded there for eight months throughout lockdown, so it has a whole lot of fond reminiscences for us. We love visiting within the hotter months to swim within the sea, eat recent seafood, rummage by means of automotive boot gross sales, and usually disconnect from the Huge Smoke.
What’s your favourite swimwear—and the seashore the place you’ll be sporting it?
I really feel like yearly for the final 10 years I’ve launched into a fruitless search to search out the proper bikini. Whether or not it was match, sturdiness, or fashion, nothing ever ticked all of the packing containers––that was till I got here throughout Peony’s underwired set. Coming in a zesty shade of orangey pink and in a sturdy ribbed cloth, it was flattering, snug, and stored its form after a number of wears and washes. I’ll be sporting it on a seashore on the east coast of Sri Lanka this summer season, a rustic I’ve by no means visited earlier than. I can’t wait.
