What We’ll be Taking on Vacation this Summer

Summer is here in New York, and talk of upcoming trips has inspired a Fashion Office survey of what items the editors deem essential for traveling. Lust-worthy pieces like Aspinal of London’s Classic Travel Wallet, Muji’s PC Trolley Bag, Pendleton’s Carry Along Motor Robe and Clare Vivier’s leather Nubuck Bag have already proven themselves useful to some of Stylesight’s globe-trotting editors. Floppy, sun-shielding hats, like J.Crew’s Beach Stripe Hat, along with an iPod, dock and new music, like Bon Iver’s soon-to-be-released new album, also made the list. Sunglasses are an obvious must-have; our new favorites are Prada’s Minimal Baroque and Ray Ban’s RB3030 Outdoorsman styles. Lastly, while perhaps not “essential,” Proenza Schouler’s printed towel, a little white Broderie Anglaise dress and long-lasting gel nails are on our master wish list.
