Packing for a Spring Escape


For those of you planning a trip away and who need a little help packing your bag, we've got you covered with how to pack for the perfect escape, inspired by David Lawrence's new Spring Summer collection.

With Spring now here, this packing guide includes a selection of items for a weekend away where the weather can be anything from warm and sunny to cool and breezy and features pieces from David Lawrence's new SS16 collection, Multiplicity, which focuses on effortless luxury–everything we love here at Alluxia.

For a two day weekend away, you really only need a couple of outfits; one for travelling to your destination on the Saturday, one for Saturday night and one to get through Sunday. Jeans and three-quarter pants are great options as you can dress them up or opt for a more casual look. We love the classic look of pieces available but couldn't go past the Sailor Stripe tee and Lace Front Sleeveless top for mixing and matching, adding in a scarf for an extra splash of colour.

We've included two bags – a cool weekender bag for packing and a tan tote for the day. We also included a wallet, which you can use during the day and as a clutch at night.

David Lawrence's classic trench coat (we've featured Ecru, but it also comes in six other colours) will get you through daytime and over a dress for a night out.

Shoes are a personal choice but espadrilles are huge this Spring/Summer and the Carla Leather Espadrilles from David Lawrence come in light blue and classic black. The light blue is a great way to lighten up your summer outfits. We've also included the gorgeous new Scalloped Heel in magenta for night, which will really pop against the Tencel Wrap Dress.

Don't forget to capture your magic moments on the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II camera with it's cool retro style and keep track of time, so you don't miss your dinner reservation, with a classic watch such as the Nixon Small Time Teller in rose gold.
