Escaping, whether it is just for a minute from everyday life or flying to the other side of the world, we all dream of that moment of bliss when you get to leave everything behind – even just for a split second. While I’ve been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to travel, I don’t believe that you have to leave your life behind to depart. Who needs a plane ticket to jet off when you can escape through clothes. While I’m no stranger to a boldly printed shirt, I usually don’t need a escape this bad – weather aside, London just feels a little grey and glum, when want I really want in life right now is something a little more tropical, exotic and bright where the sun lasts for more than 5 minutes. And it just happens that my ticket to escape comes in the form of Paul Smith and their AW17 monkey print full of bold colours and mischievous characters who make for not just the ultimate travel buddies but also the perfect getaway outfit – regardless of the destination. So whether you are flying this summer or just hanging out like me, why not escape in some Paul Smith prints yourself!
