What to buy your other half: the vacation edit

Just in time for a late-summer getaway with your other half, The Rake’s Digital Editor presents his top resortwear picks from our new capsule collection for women.

Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief (1955).

Gentlemen, if you haven't yet jetted off for sunnier climes with your partner, or - if you are anything like my Instagram feed - are perhaps wondering where to take your fifth vacation of the summer, can we suggest you peruse our new capsule collection for women. Like Twiggy, Kate Moss, and Emily Ratajkowski, it's a small but perfectly formed curation of products from some of our favourite brands who also craft timeless womenswear. But stop right there, you say. Men buying clothing for women? Don't you know how this turns out? Abject misery, doghouse for days, even divorce! Well, rein in that anxiety cowboy because nothing in this capsule requires an intrinsic knowledge of whimsical womenswear trends - the most you'll need to know is your lady's shoe size and be able to have a stab at guessing whether she is small, medium or large. Alternatively send in polaroids and we'll do it for you ( ... that was a joke).
