Gone are the days of café society, when bright young things stole away to Europe with monogrammed steamer trunks aboard transatlantic ocean liners. But that doesn’t mean the modern jet set can’t still travel in style. Think the jungle patterned statement luggage designed by Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton in The Darjeeling Limited.

Whether you’re heading to Capri for the Sun, Gstaad for the snow, or Paris for the shows, you will want to travel with ease and effortless style. I love the elegance of a classic hard-back suitcase, but nothing beats the laid back cool of a supple leather duffel.


      Slow Style

      13 May

      Having moved around a lot, I’m wary of amassing more than can fit neatly into a suitcase. I have always been a minimalist and love the freedom it affords. I don’t mean to paint myself some barefoot ascetic who has shunned the material world- far from it! I just don’t like to have anything extraneous in my life that I don’t absolutely adore.

      I think the key to achieving a carefully curated, uncluttered life is to seek beauty in everything and to truly know your personal style and aesthetic. Invest in yourself and what you love, slowly and patiently with care and attention to detail. As the venerable Yves Saint Laurent said: “Fashion fades, style is eternal.”

      I try to build my wardrobe around essentials, classic luxe basics the exemplify the highest quality and workmanship. My eternally graceful grandmother, who never left the house without lipstick, believed that a girl in possession of a great haircut, coat, and pair of shoes is unstoppable! Here are my Top 10 Essentials:

      1. Cashmere Sweater
      2. Slim Trouser
      3. Blazer
      4. Black Leather Bag
      5. Little Black Dress
      6. Black Kohl Eyeliner
      7. Trench Coat
      8. Watch
      9. Boots
      10. Flats

      What are your top 10 wardrobe essentials?
