I am loving Vogue's summer getaway slideshow! The Coveteur team asked some of their favorite editors, photographers, and designers where they are going to get away from it all—and most importantly, what they’re taking with them. I think I want to fold myself up and sneak into Thakoon's bag.
Thakoon Panichgul, Fashion Designer
Where I go: My escape is to my house upstate in the Catskills. It’s quick and easy to get to, but you feel like you’re worlds away.
What I pack: I don’t take much. I like to wear a lot of blue in the summer: a denim shirt that I cut the sleeves off of (random brand from Paris), and I pretty much wear these Vans all summer long. I also have sunglasses from my line that are technically for girls, but I think they are pretty unisex. As for accessories, I wear more necklaces and bracelets in the summer and I like natural-looking ones like the beads from Africa that I bought in New York. I also have a blue necklace that was a gift from Phillip Crangi, a yellow horsehair bracelet from South America, and this one with pearl and yellow-gold baroque “tooth” pendants I designed with Tasaki. I also love Tata Harper products because they are all natural (my friend Michelle Harper says you can eat them!), and my little Zumi camera—it takes amazing pictures and video.
How I carry it all: A vintage Helmut Lang bag from maybe ten years ago. It’s a good satchel, even for when I’m riding around in the city.
Arden Wohl, Pastry Chef, Aureole
Where I go: The Hamptons.
What I bring: Stella McCartney shoes and bags. Organic sunblock by Jason. Red tea from Paris. A Wind toss visor designed by my mother. It has silk ribbons to tie (instead of an elastic back), so it doesn’t leave a mark.
Jenne Lombardo, Director and Curator of M.A.C. and Milk Studios
Where I go: I have a house in Montauk this summer. I’m most relaxed when I’m out there surrounded by my three children and family and friends.
What I bring: Bikinis (I live in Lisa Marie Fernandez bathing suits), jean shorts (the messier the better), Pamela Love’s jewels, my Illesteva sunglasses. Patti Smith’s book, Just Kids, tea, and oil by Dyptiq (it has a soft powdery finish and a light smell that is a good base for layering my woodsy and smoky fragrances). I also cannot live without all my pieces from Suno—the bright colors and bohemian cuts blend in perfectly at the beach.
