Social Butterflies

Social Butterflies

Summer equals change - in weather, wardrobe and, of course, social commitments as days become longer and the barometer rises. Celebrating this new mood, Harrods introduces Social Butterflies – our tribute to a sun-soaked, jam-packed calendar of events that sums up a truly British summer. We’ve invited a host of VIPs to join us at the hottest happenings of the season, and created a style guide for all manner of occasions – from weddings to Wilderness – so that you’re good to go, wherever you’re headed.
