Scents that transport us to the Mediterranean and blooming gardens neither green nor floral, but… blond. Un Jardin à Cythère is the expression of an olfactory quest through Greece that leads to Kythira, an unspoiled island that has inspired many artists.

Swimming Trunks

Make no mistake, lounging by the pool is no time to let your wardrobe guard down. In fact, some would even argue that it’s the perfect arena to prove your stylistic mettle. Fortunately for men, the world of tailored swimming trunks has exploded in recent years providing endless options that tick both function and style boxes. Show your playful streak by leaning into some vivid colours and patterns like these three stellar options.

Day Shirts

Channel your inner Dickie Greenleaf this summer by inviting the spirit of la dolce vita into your wardrobe. The character portrayed by Jude Law in ‘The Talented Mr Ripley’ has become a menswear icon defined by short shorts, knitted tops, lithe loafers and most importantly, a golden tan. These knitted shirts from Italian heritage brand, Piacenza Cashmere are prime for long al fresco lunches, while the waffle knit from Mr P is an ideal candidate for slipping on and off in-between shuttles from sunbed to pool bar.


Continuing the Talented Mr Riplery theme, Dickie is seen sporting bermuda sports in the film, which present a terrific option for semi-formal occasions when trousers seem unbearable. The pleated fronts are a distinctive style with strong military connotations thanks to the adoption of these shorts by the British services in tropical territories. Also featured are these non-pleated, but effortlessly tailored Loewe’s designed to channel the laid back cool of Ibiza.

Evening Shirts

Introducing some finer materials, like cashmere or silk, into your evening wear is a simple way to achieve an elegant appearance. Soft to the touch and lightweight, these fabrics are ideally suited to warm evenings, as well as helping to cut a sophisticated figure. These cashmere shirts from Stòffa and Grand Le Mar are, once more, reminiscent of prime Dickie Greenleaf and beg to be worn loosely with buttons undone to reveal tanned skin underneath.

Linen Trousers

Although a widely adopted menswear summer staple, linen trousers can admittedly be tricky to pull off given their typically loose fitting shape. To help address this issue, we’ve selected three trousers credited for their more tailored approach, offering a heightened sartorial edge, as well as being generally more flattering.


Low key, stylish and easy to slip on-and-off; these are the criteria we look for in our choice of summer footwear. These Myrqvist sandals have been crafted with long, warm days in mind, ready for the beach, pool and city alike. While driving shoes are suited for occasions when looking sharp is the number one priority and not too much walking is involved. Morjas’ espadrille is our all-time favourite model with a more sneaker-like fit that offers superior comfort and style credentials.


Stay cooler than cool with our pick of summer accessories, including this beautiful Panama hat from Frescobol Carioca featuring a particular shapely crown and off-white band. New York based eyewear brand Moscot has been making seriously sharp specs since 1915, including our current favourite Vantz Sun in brown and bamboo colourway, replete with subtitles curves and small diamond rivets. Last but not least, Salt & Stone have perfected this ultra lightweight and non-greasy sun cream that comes in a pleasantly discreet bottle design.

Washbag Essentials

Summer should always be marked by a transition in fragrance towards something light and playful. Lean into scents that feature citric, floral and wooden notes like these fragrances from DS & Durgan and Tom Ford that are both inspired by the Mediterranean scent-scape of lemon trees, woody olive groves and salty sea air. Lastly, once you’ve experienced the refreshing spritz of a face mist, you won’t be willing to go without. This rose petal-infused version by Aesop is particularly gentle and wonderful smelling.

Poolside Reads

Ah, paradise. You can already picture yourself laying poolside under the rifling sun with a book in hand. But what book is it? Suddenly the pressure is on to find the perfect holiday read. If, like us, you tend to avoid glossy reading and prefer to match your selection to your situation, here are some gripping reads with strong themes of adventure, sunshine and shimmering oceans.

Beach Accessories

Seasons Accessories


Summer city breaks are generally conducive to packing lightly, meaning that a staunch weekender bag or carry-on case will serve your purpose nicely. These beautiful brown leather pieces are both rugged and stylish, as well sitting on the more discreet end of the spectrum.
