When it comes to a fantastic pair of shades, we love it when contemporary meets classic. An elegant yet substantial cat-eye shape is literally given a twist at the temple, begging for an up-do to show off the entire frame of what could be described as wearable art by Balenciaga. Tortoiseshell is highly recommended – it catches the light beautifully, lightening your look.

The Chanel Coco Club bag brings a sparkling sense of fun and adventure to your getaway look. The relaxed shape and vibrant palette heightens the holiday vibe, while staying true to the brand aesthetic with the classic Chanel tweed. An added bonus – the Cuban theme that inspired this collection by Karl Lagerfeld is so topical, your bag will spark conversation that goes beyond compliments.

Thorsun is the epitome of relaxed style, focusing on creating pieces with inspired prints that are fitted enough to create an eye-catching silhouette.
