I recently went to the Maldives to shoot the beautiful Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit. She is the epitome of understated cool here she reveals her style tips for summer and why the Jimmy Choo Marine Sandal is her go to this summer.
Do you have any style tips for summer?
I think a casual straw bag is essential — it’s great for going to farmers markets or the beach. For outfits, I always wear a lot of white in the summer to highlight my tan. Because it can get very warm, I wear more natural fibres like silk, linen and organic cottons. I always have a slip dress on hand — I think that’s become a trademark of mine!
What are your must-have shoes that we can find in your luggage?
My style is really subtle so I like mixing it up with ‘maximimalist’ accessories like the Marine sandals — I can see myself wearing them with jeans or a pair of leather skinnies.
