Katherine Ormerod, Senior Fashion Features & News Editor at Grazia, tells us about her summer escapes and holiday style.

Where are you heading this summer?

An adventure across northern Spain into South West France – starting in Bilbao, on to San Sebastian then stopping off in Biarritz and Bordeaux before heading into the beautiful Dordogne countryside.

Can you recommend a fab hotel anywhere in the world?

The Ace in Palm Springs is special and I always love being in the old world glamour of LA’s Sunset Tower. If you’re on a budget all the Mama Shelter Hotels are great. In Paris I love Hotel Amour (no pun intended!) and The Bowery has the best scene in New York.

What’s on your packing list for this summer?

My Isabel Marant poppy print dress, black buckled flat sandals from Zara and bikinis from Lazul and Heidi Klein.
