Get holiday ready with these sunshine bright pieces from Childrensalon

Now that the days are getting longer, and some warmer weather is on the horizon, it won’t be long until it’s time for summer holidays. Whether you’re planning to wiggle your toes in the sand on a Mediterranean island, spend your days gallery hopping on a city break or searching for the Big Five on safari, it’s time to start putting together your holiday packing list. That’s where our lovely friends at Childrensalon can help, with their latest sunshine-ready collections. Here’s their edit of the loveliest pieces, hand-picked for each destination.

Get Set for Sunshine

European Beach Fun

Europe is the perfect summer spot, right on our doorstep, with plenty of sun and balmy nights and no long-haul flights. Whether you’ll be exploring the winding cobbled alleys and white-washed houses of Mykonos, learning all about ancient civilisations in Sicily or strolling la Croisette in Cannes, you’ll want to pack plenty of light pieces to layer.

For the beach, Selini is known for its brightly coloured swimwear, while Il Gufo’s Liberty Florals are perfect come sunset. For an evening’s stroll and dinner on the harbour, go for some fun, nautical-themed pieces from Rock Your Baby.

Cool City Break

Blend in with the Italian locals by investing in some smart summer staples from Il Gufo or keep the Mediterranean theme going with a range of crisp blue and white pieces from Etro and Moschino. Little artists and budding art collectors should head to Miami, which is known for its excellent modern art galleries. There you’ll want to pack your brightest Kenzo pieces, to stand out from the crowds.

Boating around

For deep sea dashes, snorkling adventures and lunch in a different port every day. Vilebrequin make some of the best swim shorts around, which pair perfectly with a Givenchy towelling beach cover-up, while Zimmermann’s pretty-as-a-picture designs were just made for dreamy days.

All-American Adventure

When it comes to wide skies and spellbinding landscapes, there’s nowhere quite like the United States and it’s magical National Parks. Childrenswear brand Molo works with the finest organic and GOTS-certified cotton to craft their pieces, making them perfect for the great outdoors. Stella McCartney’s kids’ collections, meanwhile, are always inspired by Mother Nature, offering the very best in sustainable fashion.

Stellar Safari

A safari trip is a once in a lifetime experience, filled with incredible wild encounters of the best possible kind. Days are spent tracking everything from elephants and giraffes to leopards and lions, while come nightfall you’ll be swapping stories round the campfire and roasting marshmallows under a canopy of glittering stars. You’ll want to wear neutral tones as much as possible during the day – Jacquemus has some great options this summer. Meanwhile, Chloé’s cool cotton and chambray pieces are a great way to stay chic in the heat.
