TREES OF LIFE
Give the gift of art with a print by Lindy Branson, Sir Richard’s sister
Lindy Branson, Sir Richard’s artist sister, has fallen in love with olive trees.

COMFY AND CHIC
The days of travelling in tailored suits, dresses and heels have long gone.
The likes of footballer Erling Haaland and the actor Sophie Turner think it’s fine to wear pyjamas on a flight.
We think comfort and style don’t have to be mutually exclusive, as evidenced with Chinti & Parker’s cashmere tracksuit, which is available at Marks & Spencer in a variety of colours.
