The chic escape:
St Tropez, France
Designed by modernist architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, this discreet boutique detox retreat, on a hilltop overlooking the Mediterranean sea, is a world away from the high-octane St Tropez party scene. Choose from three- or five-day boot camps of yoga, Nordic walking, body wraps and anti-aging treatments – you’ll leave with honed arms, perfect for toting that new-season bag. healingholidays.co.uk
A cult clutch
Accessory designers are in a playful mood for spring, from Shrimps’ faux-fur styles to the return of the slogan. Brimming with impulsiveness, the new notice-me bag is fast becoming a collector’s item. Grab one while you can.
