There’s no shortage of people these days explaining why travel is good for your wellbeing – more often than not discussed in the context of a lengthy quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For Americans, this July 4th, more than ever before, is the opportune time to hit the beach and enjoy the positive effects of sitting poolside.
National holidays have taken a dramatic change in the age of the new reality. Today, we take pause before giving hugs, and most of all – due to our new way of living, shopping has taken a rapid pivot to an online model.
What does this mean? Well for one, luxury brands that once highlighted the in-store experience had to rapidly transition into a highly disrupted ecosystem. In short, brands are realizing that their digital experience needs to spark their online guests with the same emotional connection that is achieved in-store- especially, this July 4th.
Below, I have selected a handful of positive items to help you make a stylish splash this July 4th weekend —celebrating our great nation!
Apparently a lot of people have limited their attire to t-shirts and track pants over recent months. As luck would have it we launched a new sports casualwear focused sub brand Richard James London. This stylish tracksuit in Egg Yolk yellow has a slightly retro feel but incorporates many technical details you would expect from modern fabric. We have drawn our bespoke tailoring know-how to enhance the wearers best attributes and the unique colour literally lightens up the mood. It will look and perform just as well if you decide to take it outside for a spin. Price in USD: $95.00
