Description

“The rise in domestic holidays means that retailers and brands need to expand their definition of holidaywear away from the traditional beach clothing and swimwear collection. There is potential for holiday clothing to include a wider selection of outfits such as festival collections, as well as clothes suitable for the wet and cold British summer but with a feel-good holiday style.”
