Pack Like A Designer This Summer

Jetting off this summer? Here are designer Amira Haroon’s travel fashion essentials

Amira Haroon SS18

On the SS18 trends she will be wearing:

A white striped kimono kaftan and the perfect casual pair of pants are all I want to pack this year for my resort getaways. Fortunately the Amira Haroon SS18 and Festive 18 collections, available on Ounass and Bloomingdales, offer just the right selections. I plan to wear the pants with a white tee or a swimsuit. Either will give a fantastic summer vibe. As for the breezy white striped cotton kaftan, it’s a piece that’ll take me from day to night anywhere this summer.

On her summer holiday pack-list:

I love travelling with my new Louis Vuitton Horizon 55 trolley. This 4-wheeled carry-on has a completely flat interior and is super light to carry. It’ll fill all my travel essentials starting with my Selim Mouzaner jewels. These are pieces I almost never travel without; presents from my girlfriends that I never take off. I’ll definitely be taking my Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra watch as it reminds me of a special holiday I spent with my husband. And then there is this Karla Colletto Zaha halter swimsuit I’ve been eyeing on MyTheresa, it’s an unapologetically feminine suitcase savior.

Her beauty must-haves for travel:

To protect my sensitive skin from sunburns I use SkinCeuticals Mineral Radiance Sunscreen. I also pack Dior’s Fix It 2-in-1 Prime and Colour Correct Concealer, a product I simply can’t live without. My new find this year is YSL Daylight Touche Eclat Glow Shot Highlighter – a fancy new way of adding that extra sun kissed glow.

On her must-have shoes while on vacation:

For the holidays I’ll take my lace espadrilles from Valentino and ruffled slippers from Miu Miu.

On her go-to colours for summer:

Go to colours are obviously white and more white – as well as metallic neutrals!

On her ideal travel companion:

My perfect companions are my two boys and my husband. We usually love to be accompanied by our close friends and their children.

On her travel bucket list:

I would love to be able to travel to all the places my 13 year old wants to see in the next 5 years before he goes to college.

On her favourite summer destination:

Bodrum. I love the beauty of the Agean sea and the privacy of the beautiful restored gardens of the Mandarin Oriental resort in Turkbuku.

On the music on her iPod:

I don’t have an iPod anymore sadly. My son has made me tons of playlists on Spotify and I keep switching between them depending upon my mood.

On her holiday reads:

I will be reading a recent present from my best friend, Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav. It is a very thought provoking and reflective read which definitely needs long and lazy days to finish.

On her scent for the summer:

My favourite scent would have to be Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Toit. It’s one of the most uplifting breezy summer scents I have ever used.
