How to Arrive 'Festival Ready' with Tips from Poppy Delevingne
posted on Apr 20, 2016
UAE, 17 April 2016: For the thousands of British Airways customers travelling to festivals this summer, the airline has teamed up with model and designer Poppy Delevingne to compile a list of must-pack items. Kicking-off with Coachella in California (15-24 April), Poppy has selected her essential items to pack, ranging from her favourite summer wear to luxurious beauty products.
Dust off your Hunter wellington boots and get your summer hat ready – festival season is here!
Poppy said, “I’m over the moon to be at Coachella. As a keen festival goer, I've honed the fine art of packing. I no longer just shove things in a bag but consider what is needed. It includes practical items, things that make me giggle, long-lasting beauty products that are truly worth the investment and a sparkle of luxury.”
Poppy’s top items to pack for festivals this summer, are:
- Ray-Ban Round Metal G-15 sunglasses – embrace your inner 70's chick with these beauties; essential for sunshiny days.
- Chloe ‘Drew small suede and leather shoulder bag’ – I love Chloe’s signature bag, which has been given a rainbow makeover for summer. Crossbody bags are so practical & are a dreamy solution for surviving a festival in style.
- Sisley Super Soin Solaire Milky Body Mist SPF30 – it’s vital to look after your skin and to invest in good sun protection. I’m in love with Sisley’s range, which is tinted to give that holiday hue, even when you’ve just stepped off a plane.
- Star flats by Aquazzura – another one of my collaborations, perfect to achieve that ‘festival chic’ look. You could dance until the sun comes up in these!
- Jo Malone, Tuberose Angelica – my favourite scent least of all because it’s long lasting for those long festival days. Better still, you'll smell like a rose garden and Jo Malone is stocked at London Heathrow’s T5 so you can pick it up on your travels.
The airline has also compiled some of the most popular global festivals that customers will be travelling to this summer.
