what to wear
The City Break
What to Pack: When packing space is limited you need clothes that can-do double duty. Our luxurious velvet loungewear is cosy enough for relaxing in your room but will transition effortlessly into an evening look, so you’ll look city chic as you step into the bar for your pre-dinner aperitif.
What to Pack: Our Silk-Lined Wool Robes are fit for royalty, so you’ll fit right in with the Pig’s opulant decor. Plus, they’ll keep out any pesky draughts, this is England after all.
What to Pack: An occasion like this calls for nautical stripes. Bonsoir’s cotton stripe collection is that perfect hint of retro seaside cool without verging on kitsch. Top tip to save on packing space, double up your loungewear as a cover up over your beach wear.
