Ten Essential Summer Buys from Net-a-Porter’s Holiday Shop

Brilliantly named new holiday shopping destination Jet-a-Porter presents an opportune moment to start planning your summer wardrobe

Planning a summer getaway can be a difficult business. Once you’ve succeeded in finding a slot in your diary to squeeze in a couple of days out of the office for some R&R, there is the small matter of compiling a packing list, which can be an overwhelming task at the best of times. Luckily for us, and for you, Net-a-Porter has come to the rescue with its wittily titled Jet-a-Porter holiday shop, providing a curated edit of the best the luxury e-commerce mecca has to offer for all your travelling needs. A city break? Sorted. Summer beach getaway, or staycation? They have you covered for that too. There are also plenty of in-flight essentials that will make those last-minute Ryanair flights a little bit more bearable. So without further ado, we present our own selection of the things that we’ll be taking with us on holiday this year. Once we get round to actually booking them.

1. Susannah Frankel, editor-in-chief: Les Essentiels Show bandeau bikini top and Les Essentiels Scarlett bikini briefs by Eres (above)
“Eres is the Azzedine Alaïa of swimwear.”

2. Katie Shillingford, fashion director: Yasmin seersucker swimsuit by Lisa Marie Fernandez (above)
“I can almost smell the sun cream and cocktails looking at this pretty swimsuit. Can’t wait for August!”

3. Nell Kalonji, fashion editor: Les Essentiels swimsuit by Eres (above)
“I will wear this to channel the ultimate swimsuit goal: Romy Schneider in La Piscine by Jacques Deray.”

4. Olivia Singer, fashion features director: Textured leather-trimmed printed shell cosmetic case by Prada
“Because surely nothing is more perfectly suited to summer than this.”

5. Agata Belcen, senior fashion editor: Petitgrain Reviving Body Gel by Aesop
“So fresh.”

6. Holly Hay, photo editor: Luminous Glow Cream Complexion Perfector by Dr Sebagh
“Summer has to start with great skin. Having luminous glow is the dream, no?”

7. Maisie Skidmore, online editor: Metallic crochet-knit jumpsuit by Missoni
“If I was a person who jetted off on spontaneous and boozy summer holidays in sunny Saint-Tropez, I would pack this metallic crochet-knit jumpsuit, a massive Jacquemus straw hat, and my passport, and nothing else. Dreamy.”

8. Hannah Tindle, editorial assistant: Tiered beaded tassel clip earrings by Oscar de la Renta
“I’d coordinate these with the glass of sangria I would sip whilst fantasising about a holiday in 1980s Ibiza.”

9. Chloe Grace Press, junior fashion editor: SUNLEŸA Suncare Kit by Sisley - Paris
“Ensuring I’ll be sun safe in the chicest way possible.”

10. Sophie Bew, editorial assistant: Open-back gingham cotton dress by Rosetta Getty
“I always like to buy a summer dress that doubles up as a picnic tablecloth. As you can imagine they tend to get quite mucky, so a new one is in order each year. This backless Rosetta Getty number is especially charmant.”
