Pippa Holt Shares Her Favourite Pieces & Wish-List Items

Pippa Holt’s Mexican kaftans have become a seasonal go-to for fashion influencers and editors alike. Given her global lifestyle and colourful sense of style, we jumped at the chance to find out what she’s loving right now – from wish-list pieces to the summer heroes she relies on year after year.

1. The Jeans

Totême has just introduced a full-length version of their straight-cut jeans, with a mid-to-high waist and the brand’s signature twisted seams. I find its jeans always have the best fit.

2. The Jewellery

A Jessica McCormack diamond necklace would be a dream come true – she makes the most beautiful jewellery. I’m also on the hunt for a specific Dries Van Noten shell necklace from SS22; it’s the one that got away.

3. The Book

I watched Blueback on a recent flight to New York and it made me want to read all the Tim Winton books again. I love their Australian feel, so I plan on revisiting some of my favourites.

4. The Beauty Essentials

Sunday Riley’s CEO Afterglow is lightweight and helps brighten dull skin. Votary’s Super Seed Serum is full of antioxidants and leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and calm. Tata Harper’s Hydrating Floral Mask, Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream and Sisley’s Sisleÿa Day & Night Cream are also summer heroes in my beauty bag.

5. The Scent

My all-time favourite scent is Diptyque’s Rose Geranium candle – subtle, fresh and floral.

6. The Kaftan

Our new shell collection feels very special. Each piece is limited edition, so it’s best to think of it as a collector’s item. No. 709 is my go-to this season – I love the vibrancy of the orange.

7. The Escape

Next on my hit list is Villa Mabrouka in Tangier – in the 90s, it was a huge source of inspiration for Yves Saint Laurent. Now it’s been refurbished by Jasper Conran and it looks divine. The Old Cataract in Aswan and The Datai Langkawi in Malaysia are both high on my bucket list. Recent stays I loved include The Mark in New York and Borgo Egnazia in Puglia.

8. The Art

Mexican photographer Luvia Lazo’s images of her life and the artisans who weave the Pippa Holt kaftans are very powerful and moving. I highly recommend checking out her work if you’re not already familiar.

9. The Bag

Dior's new raffia straw mini tote is my dream summer bag – or maybe it’s the bucket bag style in the same crochet raffia.

10. The Hobby

I've played tennis all my life and love it to this day. Last week, I was fortunate enough to get to play on the clay courts at the Puente Romano Club in Spain, despite it being 37°C!

11. The Workout

I do a mix of PT sessions with my trainer Kevin Belton in Dublin (either in person or on Zoom) and Pilates classes. I just did some amazing one-on-one classes for three weeks at the Marbella Club Hotel’s wellness centre with a trainer called Maite.

12. The Shoe

The shoe of the season must be Alaia’s black diamante ballet flats. They’re covered in bezel-set crystals that are designed to sparkle from every angle.

13. The Hat

A wide-brimmed sun hat is a summer essential, and I have my eye on a Celine one this year – I love the frayed edges and contrasting logo.

14. Travel Finds

I am forever picking up homeware when I travel. A few favourites include a glass pineapple from the Stork Club in Comporta, illustrated plates by Bela Siva, Spanish artisan pieces from Marbella’s La Fabrica De Hielo and a ceramic head from The ExVotos in Seville that sits on my kitchen counter.

15. The Launch

I’m excited for the launch of Phoebe Philo’s new brand and collection. I know it will be worth the wait.
