TREASURED HOTEL OR RESORT
CF: Claridge’s hotel in London. It transports me back to the Art Deco age. I feel fabulous sitting within those walls.
FAVOURITE HOLIDAY DESTINATION
CF: Ibiza, because you can have a little bit of everything. I love the energy and the solitude.
MY TRAVEL ATTIRE
CF: A boyfriend jean, cowboy boots or suede moccasins depending on the time of year, a white tee, knitted jumper, an oversized cashmere scarf, and I always carry a pair of socks in my bag.
3 THINGS TO PACK
CF: I always pack a scarf whether I’m going on a sun or snow vacation – it’s the perfect cover up for cool, summer evenings and it’s an easy way to incorporate accessories into your look. A bikini – I prefer printed bandeau styles. At least three pairs of sunglasses so you have a style for all occasions. My current favourites are an orange pair by The Row that I snapped up from The Outnet.
MUST-HAVE ITEM OF THE SEASON
CF: A By Walid silk bomber made with 17th-century Chinese fabric.
FAVOURITE SPA FOR SOME ‘ME’ TIME
CF: I adore one of Israel’s Dead Sea resort hotels, the Ein Gedi Hotel.
MY SIGNATURE SCENT
CF: I have two – Black Orchid by Tom Ford and Portrait of a Lady by Frédéric Malle.
MY BEAUTY TIP
CF: Oribe moisturising cream is an essential for me. I never put oil on my face.
MY TOP PLACE TO DINE
CF: Il Buco in New York.
FOOD I CRAVE
CF: Korean – specifically kimchi!
ON MY PLAYLIST
CF: Everything from The xx, to Angus & Julia Stone and old school Fleetwood Mac. I’m currently listening to London Grammar.
SOMETHING I CAN’T STOP WATCHING
CF: Friends – it’s on all the time and so easy to watch.
THE BOOK ON MY BEDSIDE TABLE
CF: I’ve just finished The Goldfinch and I’m reading One Hundred Days of Solitude again. I just bought Murakami’s book Norwegian Wood and can’t wait to get started.

THE MEANING OF LUXURY
