    This issue has felt like a long time coming…

    While the past couple of years have seen us rediscover the pleasures of being closer to home, I think I speak for many of us when I say that the thought of switching staycations for sun-drenched shores is a whole new level of exciting. The mood at ICONS HQ is high-summer vibes, but before we switch on our out-of-office, we wanted to put together a destination special to ensure that wherever and whenever you go away this summer, it will be the most stylish escape of your life. 

    This starts with the perfectly packed suitcase. I’m a firm believer that an organised, well-thought-through holiday capsule is the secret to effortless holiday style – and over the years I’ve been honing the art of putting them together. On page 2, I share my step-by-step guide, plus a few tips on how to transform the packing process from chore to joy. 

    Once you’ve packed, you’ll need a chic outfit to travel in. Turn to page 3, where Petro has curated an edit of the airport essentials she relies on. And if you’re in need of new luggage, don’t miss our competition to win a four-piece set from Antler.

    The one rule of holiday style is to dress to suit the destination. Creating a themed capsule not only makes packing easier, it means you’ll always look the part. To give you a little inspiration (and a lot of escapism), we’ve spotlighted our fantasy sunshine locations and put together the pieces to wear when there. Think preppy stripes in the Hamptons and tutti-frutti brights in Tulum – I can almost taste the margaritas! 

    Swimwear is central to any sunny getaway, so this is the perfect moment to reveal our exclusive Cossie+Co style. Meet The Nikki: your new favourite black one-piece. Whatever your summer plans, this is the perfect piece to pack. We share just four of the ways to style it on page 14

    Of course, no holiday is complete without a summer dress. From beach day to destination wedding, we’ve rounded up the very best styles of the season. To go with them, we’ve also found the chicest sandals to suit every taste, plus the nail colours to match. 

    If your holiday agenda is more sunrise hikes than sunset cocktails, turn to page 13 for Deborah Brett’s road-trip packing list. Staying in the city this summer? I’ve answered your most-asked style questions about keeping chic in the heat. Plus, Petro has everything you need to get your al-fresco tabletop on point. And if you’re already planning your next holiday, take a look inside the Puglian trullo I can’t stop dreaming about. Fall in love now and book for later. 

    Finally, on page 5 Petro and I give the low-down on the reef-friendly sun creams worthy of a spot in your summer beauty kit. 

    Happy holidays!
