Penelope's Top Picks

Renowned for her unique and vibrant footwear, shoe designer Penelope Chilvers shares her top picks for the summer season...

As a designer and creative director, I'm constantly travelling from one country to the next, visiting our factories or gathering inspiration. Therefore any beautifully designed items that make this process more enjoyable are always high on my list.

Distinctive prints and colour combinations always make me smile – even if it’s raining - so bold and bright pieces are an absolute must-have. I’ve chosen some really eye-catching yet practical pieces from some of my favourite design houses – including jewellery from Marni and Coccinelle and a leather travel organiser from Smythson. I also love this beautiful travel bag from Diane Von Furstenberg to keep all my belongings safe and sound.

Molton Brown is perfect for travel size toiletries – it’s so nice to make your hotel room feel like a home from home and these instantly add a personal touch!

Finally, our Penelope Chilvers Skipper Espadrilles are the ideal travel companion - lightweight and easy to take on and off when required. The metallic finish allows them to dress up an outfit when necessary so they offer great versatility.
