There’s still sufficient time to plan your summer vacation. If you have already decided on your travel destination – I am officially jealous of you – perhaps it is time to plan the outfits.

Meanwhile, I am hoping to exude some nautical chic at some chi-chi breezy location this summer. (PS: Please bombard me with suggestions on places to go!)

The prominence of nautical style was likely due to Coco Chanel, whose collection in 1917 was inspired by the Breton stripe shirts worn by fishermen after a trip to the French Riveira. The striped top became a fashion symbol and Mademoiselle Chanel was frequently seen in her nautical staple paired with long flared trousers.

Fast forward today, you could go beyond classic stripes and venture into print on print – mixing anchor with circle prints. Other than playing with the colour palette of white, blue and red, I also introduced a turban because it would look so cute on the entire outfit. My favourite part of the collage? The upcoming Saint James for Coach drawstring tote, which will only be available from May 2013 onwards exclusively at Coach Wisma Atria store.

Where are you headed this summer? Have you planned your holiday outfit?

盛夏将至,大家开始筹备夏天假期了吗?若您已经确定了旅行计划,不妨开始策划旅行的穿着。盛夏季节搭配海军风,最恰当不过。以上的选择,您是否喜欢?本人最喜欢Saint James for Coach系列的帆布包袋,简单的线条,加上可爱的绳子,最适合休闲旅游了。这系列将在5月份推出,届时仅在Coach Wisma Atria店出售。
