We are all guilty of over-packing our holiday wardrobes, but are we really going to change our outfits the three times a day? Probably not, so the concept of a chic and coherent capsule collection of vacation-wear should have universal appeal.

Imagine then, that concept but with a high-fashion twist and French Riviera connotations. That’s exactly what you’ll find in the Balmain Summer Capsule that dropped exclusively on Net-a-Porter today. Taking inspiration from A-list havens like St Tropez and Cannes, the streamlined range is tailored to luxury-seeking travellers in need of stylish wares for their next adventure.

Curated with neutral pieces, the brand’s Summer line can be mixed and matched together, making for more options with fewer clothes. Every occasion is covered from casual daywear through to formal evening options, all imbued with Balmain’s signature including gold statement hardware and perfectly-tailored co-ordinates.

The lightweight, vacation-ready styles have been designed into white day-to-night pantsuits, maxi dresses, high-cut bodysuits, a sequinned camisole and mini dress, all based on a sexy nautical theme. Shop the capsule collection HERE.
