This month we’ve teamed up with contributor to harper’s bazaar, former vogue tv presenter & celebrity stylist Martha Ward to find out what’s in her suitcase.
WHAT'S IN YOUR SUITCASE?
“Plenty of bikinis. high waisted pants are my current favourtie so this ASCENO midnight ridge printed bikini is definitely in my suitcase. lots of vintage sundresses. light summer scarves as you never know when you might need an added layer of warmth. espadrilles of all varieties - flat and wedge. my favourites are soludos. baskets and more baskets. vintage raffia baskets, rae feather baskets, baskets of all kinds. and suncreams and post sun balms from sisley and dior ”

NAME YOUR FIVE FAVOURITE PLACES TO WEAR ASCENO
“The south of france. provence ideally. the imnipresent lavender aroma is too alluring. a caribbean island - ideally mustique. the hamptons. i can’t do a summer without a stop by for a long weekend. anywhere in italy. i cant resist the food - the tuscan hills is preferable. home in the scottish borders. nothing compares to a northumbrian beach, thought i won’t be in a bikini for long in this instance!”
THREE BOOKS FOR TRAVEL
“My holiday reads this summer - a house full of daughters by juliet nicolson and the invitation by lucy foley. i always have a bit of alan bennett with me. and i read mary wesley books on repeat. so i always take one of her books with me, even though i’ve read each and every one of them 16 times. it’s comfort reading, essential when abroad”.
