  • 1. What's your perfect carry one or piece of luggage?


  • 2. What’s your go-to travel uniform?

    KHAITE JEANS, a white t-shirt and a navy blazer. Clean, polished and always useful to have on a trip.

  • 3. Can’t travel without:

    PODCASTS... preferably Malcom Gladwell's "Revisionist History" or "How I Built This."

  • 4. Oddest thing I’ve ever packed:

    A 17TH CENTURY FRENCH RENAISSANCE BALL GOWN with a corset for a "dangerous liaisons" themed wedding.

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

    Sewing kits and writing utensils...and if the spot is really just the coolest, then maybe an ashtray.
