Beach dreaming

It's In the bag... Reading Beach dreaming 2 minutes Next Vogue Centenary

Inspiration strikes in many ways, but when you are lucky enough to spend part of your working life in one of the world's most naturally beautiful and unspoilt places, it becomes almost instinctive.

Our new Luxe Neutral collection has the varied coastlines of our beloved Menorca to thank.  Named after some of our favourite coves and beaches scattered around the Island, is this irresistible collection of sandy-hued nubucks and sunset-toned metallic straps.

The best times in this most-beloved place are the quiet times, out of season, when a beach is your own private playground and your favourite restaurants retain the intimacy and personal touch that comes so naturally to native Menorcans.

One of the best ways to explore Menorca is by water, whether it be by boat or kayak, even in the height of the summer season it is possible to seek out a deserted cove.


And once you've found your private beach, stay until sunset... it just gets more beautiful.
