Gin ices, pastel nails, MIA and mega-slides – make a many of summer ’16

May 29, 2016 - fall Denim

1 Is there such a thing as an It nail? Let’s fake there is. SS16 manicures are a conflicting of final season’s irritable nails. Rather than dim and sharp, a polish we wish right now is a chalky pastel in possibly soothing blue, lilac or a many ethereal embarressed pink.

2 Rethink oppulance transport – this is Airbnb times 10. Le Collectionist is a preference of posh villas (including Leo DiCaprio’s), and any residence is for hire.

3 Can’t wait for subsequent year’s Hockney retrospective? Prepare yourself with Zevs’s high-gloss domestic reworkings of A Bigger Splash from 29 July.

4 Raw and unruly and suggestive of holidays we usually dreamed of, this season’s Hawaiian shirt trend (as seen during Saint Laurent and a some-more wallet-friendly Topman) should be layered with leather for a macho finish. £30,

5 All summer Alfred LeRoy, a waterway boat, will journey a River Lea in easterly London, past a Olympic Park, portion internal beers, cocktails and charcuterie platters. Eat, drink, be merry… yet don’t tumble in.

7 In Jul MIA will recover her fifth, and what is rumoured to be her last, album. In a Periscope live discuss she hinted it would be a ‘happy’ record. Hooray!

8 Be honest: you’ve never favourite coconut water. Too dry, too… coconutty. Its successor, though, is honestly drinkable. According to Beyoncé, “the destiny of clean, healthy hydration” is watermelon water.

9 The Pig, England’s favourite collection of nation hotels, is expanding a spawn with a skill in Devon. Expect a welcoming “derelict chic”, with massages offering in a potting shed, and a private dining room “below stairs”.

10 Cocktails ambience improved on a stick, and they’re most harder to spill. Available in Gin Fizz, Bellini, Mojito and Spritz, they’re a flirtiest approach to get dipsomaniac this summer.
