Designer Rebecca Taylor Offers up Some Holiday Tips

New Zealand-born designer Rebecca Taylor is constantly looking to her world travels for inspiration. She lets W magazine in on the best outfits for the plane and what makes for the perfect travel shoe. Plus, she dishes on her favourite fellow airplane passenger ever, the most luxurious hotel bathroom on the planet, and more.

Taylor’s favourite mode of travel is by seaplane, and she says that the best person she was ever seated next to was Sting.

Her “go-to travel outfit” is: “Vintage Italian army pants, a white Victorian blouse, cashmere socks, and a throw.” Matched with nude leather Birkenstocks.

“What is your favourite airport lounge?” W asks New York-based Taylor.

“The Air New Zealand business class lounge in LA – it’s amazing, they have showers, a full bar, and a buffet. It makes me feel like I am almost home,” she says.

Her preferred off-season destinations?

“Italy and Turks and Caicos. The weather is still really nice in May and June but there are less tourists and the beaches are not as crowded.”
