Longchamp Le Pliage Original, £95
Whether you’re heading overseas for the summer or enjoying festival season here in Blighty, Longchamp’s Le Pliage foldable bag is ideal for carrying your essentials. The design was inspired by the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, meaning it can fold away to a fraction of its size when not in use, great for maximising space in your hotel or lodging. Additionally, it’s available in a wide variety of sizes, colours and styles so you can find the one that suits you best.
Available at Longchamp.

Vivobarefoot Tracker II FG, £200
Vivobarefoot’s flexibility first approach to shoes might not seem like a natural fit for hiking boots but the Tracker II FGs prove otherwise. The high sides provide plenty of ankle support but the flexible soles allow for a much higher degree of ground feel. Better for clambering up mountain trails and maintaining solid contact with the ground when it really matters. Plus, the thinner look is great stylistically as it doesn’t dominate your outfit as much as a thick boot.
Available at Vivobearfoot.
Desmond & Dempsey Cuban Pyjama Set, £160
