INSPIRATION : SUMMER STYLE WITH EDWINA ROBINSON
Tips from the top. Ever stylish and impossibly chic, take your cue from our co-designer Edwina, as she spills the beans on navigating summer in style.
Top summer staples?
A relaxed blouse in silk cotton or linen, with one of my signature mini skirts in leather or denim, Saint Laurent heeled biker boots and and a pair of my favourite shades – currently white round frames by The Row.
Best way to escape the heat?
Taking a drive out of the city in search of a secluded beach.
Statement piece to invest in now?
I love the contrast between something statement matched back with something simple and innately casual – The La Pella Top is my current vice.
Summer style icons?
Edita Vilkeviciute, Anna Ewers and of course – Jane Birkin.
Summer beauty tip?
Always wear a hat to protect your face – it’s a sun safe measure and also an amazing summer accessory. I live in my red wide-brimmed Christian Dior hat throughout summer. It literally becomes an extension of me.
Heels of flats?
No decision to be made there – always the the former. I love the way a heel makes a woman move, and the added elegance and confidence it gives. A beautiful heel is also a work of art in it’s own right, to be admired on or off one’s foot.
How to transition from day to night?
For summer it’s all about choosing something that’s effortless yet elevated – something like the Aegina Dress or Marie Ange Dress. Both are perfect for wearing to the beach but also for looking fresh and effortless in an evening setting. All that is needed is to swap a flat sandal for a heeled version, add some fun oversized earrings, a Chanel red lip and perch a light weight blazer or jacket over the shoulders.
Favourite summer scent?
Acqua Di Parma Colonia Intensa.
Must have summer accessories?
Statement Earrings from Lucy Folk.
Best way to keep stylish as the temperature rises?
Learn to live in and fall in love with feminine silhouettes in light, breathable fabrications. You can always toughen with a boot.
Favourite summer escape?
Amalfi Coast, Puglia, Côte d’Azur – in all these places, I prefer to discover the hidden gems that the locals recommend rather than beelining straight for the usual suspects.
All time favourite summer movie?
Bernardo Bertolucci’s “Stealing beauty” with Liv Tyler.
