Indian summer: add some soul to the season

Hold that hot cocoa and put those candles away. Summer may have told you it’s leaving you, but it’s back for one more final fling before the bitter cold of winter takes you into its arms.

It’s an Indian Summer, a poetic moment, suspended in time, where the warm colors of fall blend effortlessly with the natural rays of the sun, for a delicious cocktail of seasons to be sipped slowly. 

The Indian summer spirit

Before the warm drinks, the comfort foods, the glittering candles and those cocooning plans at home, here’s our guide to make the most of the sweetness of an Indian summer.

  1. 1. Play outside
    Go for walks outside in a forest or through a city. Pick chestnuts and mushrooms. Go for a run, a bike ride roller-skating or do yoga in a garden.
  2. 2. Enjoy terrace life 
    Embrace your inner Parisienne and enjoy a drink or a meal on the terrace of an outdoor café or a rooftop with a view on the world. 
  3. 3. Cherish the last of summer produce 
    Mother Nature is so generous during the Indian summer. It’s time to enjoy the last delicacies of summer like eggplants, tomatoes or fresh herbs, figs and those first apples and pears.
  4. 4. Love your layers 
    Wear your favorite summer clothing with a light sweater or jacket before you switch to wool sweaters and corduroys!
