The designer dishes on what to carry, what to wear and what to see when you're on the road.
"For me, travel is about recharging my batteries and looking at things with a fresh perspective. I am constantly inspired by what I see."
1. Go for fabrics that move with you, like jerseys.
2. I love lightweight coats. But they’re too bulky to pack; wear yours onto the plane.
3. A cashmere scarf can serve as both a muffler and a blanket on a flight.
4. Travel pants should be comfy. If they have a touch of stretch in the fabric, they’ll look sexy and won’t wrinkle.
"When flying, minimize your accessories. They cause a mess at security."
