Books, accessories, beauty – win all the elegant essentials you could possibly need for a stylish summer…

Of course, you know the hours we spend curating all of the beautiful books that go into your boxes, but sometimes we get involved in other exciting projects too. And back in March, we were delighted to work with one of our favourite fashion labels, Self Portrait. The Malaysian-born designer behind the brand had devised a voyage to his native Kuala Lumpur to showcase his new swimwear collection to an intimate group of his favourite fashion folk – editors from Vogue, L’Officiel and ELLE, international stylists and a few faces you might recognise from the catwalk shows’ front rows. Would we like to curate a selection of books for the trip?

Of course, we were thrilled to oblige – curating a selection of books to accompany the trip, alongside a selection of elegant Self Portrait accessories and beauty must-haves. And we’ve got a complete set for you to win – perfect for summer travels. So what can you win?

An exclusive, limited edition Self Portrait basket bag, just the right size for drinks at your local beach bar – or perhaps carrying around on a summer city break.

Self Portrait’s Lia ivory frame sunglasses: Made from glossy ivory acetate, these sunglasses are set with opaque black lenses. This classic square shape is updated with a statement gold browbar.

A limited edition jungle green Self Portrait silk scarf and glass water bottle.

Hair styling essentials from Bumble & Bumble: the iconic Surf Spray and award-winning Surf Foam Spray Blow Dry.

Glossier’s YOU solid perfume: This solid format melts quite literally into skin. Encased in a weighted metal compact sculpted to perfectly fit the curve of your palm and thumb, with an addictively-flippable hinged swivel. Swing open, press finger into the scented base, glide You onto skin wherever you please. Repeat as desired.

And of course, copies of The Art of Travel and Jami Attenberg’s All Grown Up – the books we chose for Self Portrait’s trip…
