Ending 2011 on a high note: 5 picks for a winter sun holiday

Posted on 31st December, by Colin Chapman in travel. No Comments

It’s been a while. Somewhere between the excitement of London and New York fashion weeks and the slow grind up to the Christmas season, I lost the urge to post. But with the old year about to be kicked aside and a sunny holiday to plan for, I’m feeling very much revitalised and excited about a whole new season and the prospect of seeing some colour again. Yes, I’m off to Thailand for some much needed beach time – yoga, light, cleansing food and no doubt some rooting around for unusual finds during our final weekend in Bangkok.

I’m aware that some of my trend pieces are a little esoteric for some tastes (like the last post linking together the random trilogy of Aperol cocktails, Burberry Prorsum and Brooklyn electronica). But this is genuinely how things strike me. Whilst I’m as likely as the next guy to notice glaringly obvious street trends, I get more satisfaction in identifying the broader sweep of where fashions comes from. And if it brings together the holy trinity of dance music, menswear and vibrant world cultures, then hell, I want to know about it. So, hang in there, this one requires another leap of faith.
