For her, try a white trainer. A contemporary classic, the white trainer offers endless styling opportunities, ideal for when one is travelling with hand luggage only.

Forget take-out, when on a city break, enjoying some of the city’s most fabulous restaurants is always on the agenda. On a short trip, allow yourself to indulge in whatever delicious house cuisine the local area has to offer. Whether that is the classic risotto al nero di seppia in Venice, escargot in truffle butter in Paris, or an alfresco burger in the Covent Garden Piazza, eating out is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in a new city. For relaxed yet elegant dinners, a chic and classic loafer, such as Hummingbird, will pair effortlessly with trousers and jeans, exuding premium materials and understated style. For ladies, a chunky sandal crafted from beautiful leather, such as Agnes or Dominique, will give you fresh off the runway style with the ability to stroll for post dinner gelato with ease.
