Favorite Hotel: Surya Samudra in Kerela. The cottages are original traditional bungalows - each one is unique and beautifully designed on a cliff overlooking the sea. The food is exceptional, they have an incredible Ayruvedic spa and fantastic yoga....it's a truly therapeutic experience.

  • 1. What's your favorite piece of carry on luggage?

    A limited edition Symthson x Quintin Jones weekender, which I've brought with me everywhere. I also love a classic globetrotter trunk.

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

    ACNE JEANS and TABULA RASA ELBRUS HOODIE, which is a warm, super soft cashmere wool in a textured honeycomb stitch which I like to retreat behind on long transatlantic flights...

  • 3. Can't travel without?

    PALO SANTO and a lighter...the smell is calming and centering.

  • 4. Strangest thing you've ever packed?

    Sometimes I head out of the city to the North Fork in order to clear my head so I can design...I like to pack my office EPSON PRINTER/SCANNER in my suitcase so I can scan my sketches and send them off to my production team while I'm away.

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

    Pens... I'm always jotting down ideas in my notebook and at any one time might have about 20 pens floating around my bag.
