  • 1. What’s your favorite piece of luggage to travel with?

    RIMOWA all the way - the ones with the wheels that move 360degrees when case is upwards. Doubles up as a kids perch when dragging through the airport.

  • 2. What’s your Go-To Travel Uniform?

    A large, soft Temperley London blanket shawl to have over my head if sleeping.

  • 3. Can’t Travel Without:

    Make skincare rose face oil, headphones and a notebook.

  • 4. Oddest thing I’ve ever packed:

    I almost got arrested for having an IPad case with a very realistic 3D gun detail when going through customs ... I have also been marched out of an airport once wearing a small golden gun necklace around my neck - I had to send it back to London in a black taxi. For longer holidays, I pack marmite…

  • 5. Favorite thing to nick from the hotel room?

    Ummmm....I have pinched a few DRESSING GOWNS, but the rates justified it…so thought it was acceptable. I was in my old Chateau Marmont one this morning :)

Scoop

"opulence has become insular" : read this poignant essay on the closing of yet another nyc hotel icon, the waldorf astoria, on surface mag.
it's the 1 we've been waiting for! ...with its thoughtful interiors and views that can't be beat, 1 hotel brooklyn bridge is being called one of the best new hotels of 2017.
FINALLY. Soho House heads to Brooklyn, this time with their signature restaurant Cecconi's, coming soon to Dumbo. And the best part? It's open to all.
