The Simple Solution To Packing This Summer: Take LESS

Rather than investing in extra suitcases, making additional purchases such as packing cubes or spending unnecessary time researching complicated packing techniques (to roll or to fold?), a simple solution is just to pack LESS.

Community Clothing founder Patrick Grant’s recent book LESS explains how having fewer, better things can make us happier. This philosophy translates perfectly for upcoming summer travel plans where a ‘holiday’ will hopefully be spent relaxing, with time spent away from the busyness of modern lives.

“I wear the same stuff pretty much every day, whether I’m on holiday or at home which makes packing for my hols super simple.” (Patrick Grant, Founder, Community Clothing)

Community Clothing’s focus on natural fibres makes the non-seasonal collections perfect for warmer temperatures. Simple and elegant dresses in pure cotton and linen, organic cotton t-shirts, plastic free 70’s style sports shorts, striped oversized cotton poplin shirts and classic organic denim create a timeless and easy to wear capsule - good all year round but perfect for summer travel.

Also new for 2024 is the Parlick unisex trainer from Community Clothing’s partnership with British made trainer brand Norman Walsh. The Parlick is based on a heritage design with ‘80’s tech and available in four colours.
