This might have something to do with Joan Didion’s “The White Album”, a legendary essay collection that best describes the West Coast in the 1960’s or maybe just with the generous geographical supply of light and warmth, but whenever you think of summer, don’t you subconsciously somehow always think about Dusty Springfield, palm trees and, well, California?
To raise our spirits, we took on a trip that goes beyond Los Angeles through the dusty highways into the heart of the desert and the flora of one of America’s most praised national parks, Joshua Tree. Mood? Colorful and casual, it is exactly the way we want our summer to be: hot, raw, unpredictable. Our suggestion? Invest into Mara Hoffman’s breezy cotton slip dresses, spacious Lemaire button-down blouses and a touch of Rag&Bone’s raw denim that, combined with silky tops and desert boots, instantly projects the feeling of a never-ending fortune. Stella McCartney’s seasonal khakis make up for a good evening companion to a classic Equipment silk blouse while Magda Butrym’s eclectic vintage-inspired designs give your holiday outfit an instant glamour upgrade.
Now all you need is a vintage Pontiac, a Janis Joplin record and an over-night stay at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. And if California does indeed seem to be too far away, we know for certain that Italian road trips make up for a good alternative (and they smell of oranges, too!).
