he divine aroma of own-brand coconut candles (£32) at this glam beachwear store is enough to transport you to a world where stress-free grooming (there’s an on-site beauty salon offering waxing, tanning, facials and manicures), sampling beauty products (including the fabulous St Barth’s range) and choosing the latest Missoni bikini are numbers 1, 2 and 3 on your to-do list. Own-brand bikinis start at £135 and come in classic black and white, with a choice of fashion-forward colours (turquoise, coffee, striped) too. Also on offer are bikinis by Lenny, Missoni, Helen Kaninski, and Vix and Eres, men’s togs by Orlebar Brown and Vilebrequin, and Tom Ford and Tod’s eyewear, as well as a host of own-brand kaftans, sandals and cover-ups. Robes and flip flops in every dressing room add to the VIP feel. A finer place to buy a bikini we can’t imagine.
