1. What’s your favorite piece of luggage?
A piece I designed for the Dree Hemingway capsule collection at Cole Haan, it's made in the most luxurious Italian calf and it gets even better with age. It's also one of a kind we never produced it so I own one of 3 samples made.
2. What’s your go-to travel uniform?
My OVERSIZED CASHMERE BLANKET, HOLLY GO LIGHTLY EYE MASK (yes, as in a recreation of the original blue Breakfast at Tiffany's, complete with gold tassels), ISABEL MARANT WOOL LEGGINGS, and maybe a COS SCARF. All of these items are good so I can layer up or down according to the temperature. Sometimes it gets super cold on the plane and then really hot after landing so I like to be able to peel or add a layer on or off on the spot.
3. Can’t travel without:
4. Oddest thing I’ve ever packed:
An old school DVD player to play my yoga CD when I'm on the go and don't have my laptop. It's pink and looks like a giant tape recorder...it's hilarious.
5. Favorite thing to nick from the hotel room:
Shower caps, I can't ever have enough. And any good letterpress or stationary or note pads for doodles and designing on the go or while I'm on the phone at the hotel.
