One thing we’ve learnt in these unprecedented times is that a positive frame of mind can improve even the grimmest of circumstances. So, we will continue to provide you with travel inspiration and Sommer wanderlust like we’ve always done. Think of us as your digital escape to a European summer. As the Sommer Swim team continues to #WFH, we got together over a Skype call to curate a list of Sommer-inspired activities we hope will bring some sunshine back into your life, from the comfort of home. Enjoy x

 

COOK AN ITALIAN MEAL

Our go-to comfort food, a big bowl of homemade pasta! Do as the Italians do and enjoy a Pasta al pomodoro before hitting the couch for a siesta. Head to Bon Appétit for a simple delicious recipe. That’s amore.

WATCH THESE CLASSIC SUMMER FILMS

The must-watch films before your next holiday, wardrobe inspiration included.

 

The Talented Mr. Ripley – Some of the scenes were filmed on the beautiful Italian
island of Ischia, where we also shot our latest campaign La Posidonia
La Piscine – 60’s poolside glamour in the Côte d'Azur starring Romy Schneider and Jane Birkin – need we say more?

 Stealing Beauty – A coming of age story set in Tuscany, sees a fresh-faced Liv Tyler spend her summer sunbathing, attending soirées and frolicking in olive groves.

 To Catch A Thief – The cinematography and Grace Kelly’s wardrobe on the French Riviera is the inspiration we need right now.  

MOOD BOARD YOUR NEXT HOLIDAY

Summer isn't cancelled! Bookmark the sun soaked destinations and vacation looks you'll be wearing from beach to poolside once this is all over. Head to the Sommer Swim Pinterest for daily inspo and a much needed digital vacation.

Take a look at our Milos, Greece travel diary for some more sommer inspiration.
