Right now we can only dream about sitting by a pool in a Modernist house in the Hollywood hills wearing a Prada bodysuit and earrings. The reality is that we're wading in persistent rain and watching flash floods swallow the coast. However, imagine for a moment that we're anywhere but here, that we're sitting in something that looks like Tom Ford's 'A Single Man'. The LA sun is prickling the skin and the air smells like hot concrete and suncream. Days are spent pool side, reclining in the heat... It's a stretch we know.
In this fantasy LA-LA land we'd be accessorising Prada's '50s pin-up-worthy suit with Balenciaga's woven orange bag. The hit of colour is a welcome change to the natural beige coloured weave and after all summer should be bright. On the feet are Bally's pale blue slip-ons - the pool sandal for grown ups.
Inspired by David Hockney's paintings, we'll keep hitting the repeat button on this scene and usher summer in.
