A vacation, without the flight.
Date May 28, 2021
After 15 months (and counting) of having our feet planted firmly on the ground — for good reason, of course — awaiting the moment this pandemic stops pandemic-ing, even the most airplane-averse are anticipating their next odyssey above the clouds. How do we cope with our unrequited wanderlust? Daily journaling, hobby-hopping, dreaming about travel — and lining our virtual shopping carts with travel- and beach-themed clothes to fill our suitcases with the moment we can jet off safely.
Our longing for global escapades and conversations with locals — in a town where we aren’t also locals — calls for some serious fashion moments. Perhaps a Johanna Ortiz frock adorned with palm trees, coconuts and waves swirled together in a geometric print will do the trick, or a crochet robe perfect for lounging poolside? Loewe’s Paula’s Ibiza 2021 collection has your hypothetical vacation needs covered, while a more subtle nod to world travels comes in the form of Charlotte Chesnais’s abstract “round trip” gold ring — its looping design summons thoughts of sculptures from around the globe.
Browse the gallery below for some much-needed travel inspo that will turn the next jaunt through your own neighbourhood into a tropical moment.
