While we’re just getting over the fact the British Summertime is well and truly over, the fashion world is already mapping out their summer getaways for next year. By way of their Cruise - or ‘Resort’ depending on who you ask - collections in May 2020. For Gucci's Cruise 2021 show it will be held in the U.S (though the exact location is still under wraps) and Giorgio Armani in Dubai while Miuccia Prada is heading to Japan. In need of some holiday inspo? Here’s BURO.’s Location, Location, location: The Fashion Edition

What to do? 

Get your culture fix at the Getty Villa in Malibu, which is home to more than 44,000 Greek, Roman, and Etruscan antiquities. Book a (free) slot online in advance.

The gelato shop of dreams - Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream in Soho. With no fewer than 88 flavours and combinations like ‘Pistaschio Black Current Jelly’ and ‘Salt ‘n’ Pepper Pine Nut’. More delicious than it sounds, we promise.
