A tiki lounge enough to give you that summer rush, a white sand runway enough to make you feel the sun kissing your skin, Bob Marley’s reggae beats enough to lift your spirits high, with that fresh escape come Tommy Hilfiger’s striped fabrics, vibrant colors, crochet garments and swimwear.

It’s where I long to be more and more.’ Phoebe Philo’s escape all happened on a conceptual tented-inspired background, completed with a mechanistic drumming.
