A summer of staycations means the foreign becomes even more exotic and tantalisingly beyond reach for us. It should, hopefully, make us appreciate travel and question how we frame its purpose and meaning.
Whilst we do that, the allure of images from abroad will still whet our appetite for sunshine and shades. Greek fashion designer Mary Katrantzou’s new resort capsule collection Mary-Mare (we all know a few of these) is based on postage stamps & seashell prints emblazoned on natural fabrics such as cotton, linen and silk.
You can shop the collection or send a digital card (£15) from hot vacay spots such as Portofino or the Côte d’Azur.
