what meaning do clothes have for you
i'm inspired by and appreciate the creative artistry behind beautifully designed clothing but ideally i would be adrift in the adriatic wearing the same shredded t-shirt and flip flops everyday.
describe your style
beachy elegance in a state of decay
you're an avid traveler - do your travels and the cultures you've experienced influence your style?
definitely, but in subtle ways. i love exploring the markets for native accent pieces while i’m traveling. a talisman for good fortune maybe, textiles for projects never to be completed, traditional silver crafts, locally woven & hand dyed scarves. whatever treasure i find acts as a vessel for memories from abroad, offers a glimpse into a cultures creativity, and helps support local artisans and designers
describe the most surreal place you've visited
everywhere, but jaisalmer was a hallucination. a mirage sculpted out of sandstone and magic close to the border of pakistan and india. ornate havelis, a golden fort and marbled jain temples create a monsoon of beauty in the rainless desert.
what's your top travel tip?
don’t over plan or over pack, but do overstay. keep an open mind, sip some wine and everything will be just fine
how many countries have you visited?
as a hopelessly lost albatross, never enough
