BEHIND THE GLASS — Sophia Serin, Group Editor (pictured above)
Larry David famously said: “You know who wears sunglasses inside? Blind people and (insert profanity here).” Sorry Larry but I am one of those people.
In the summer, especially on holiday, you will rarely see me without shades covering my peepers. I have been known to travel with up to 10 pairs, but with these new lovelies in my life, that number will definitely be halved.

BAG(GAGE) LADY — Alexandria Gouveia, Online Editor
There’s nothing I hate more when travelling than people with numerous pieces of hand luggage holding you up when boarding. I like to keep my carry-on streamlined: wallet, phone charger, make-up, Kobo Auro tablet (containing hundreds of my books) and a change of clothes. This Bric’s holdall not only fits all my bits and pieces, it’s also one hell of a stylish bag. Win/win!

CARRIED AWAY — Jade Sprowson, Style Director
Airport panic averted as Tod’s new Cape bag comes into play. Gone are the days of my passport getting lost in the deep, dark depths of my tote; the perforated floral pattern allows light to pour in whilst the pull-apart magnetic sides enable easy rummaging through all my carry-on necessities. Looks like I’ll be waxing lyrical about this bag all the way to Nice…

TRACK STAR — Olivia Phillips, Fashion Features Editor
The only (and I mean ONLY) way you’ll get me into a pair of tracksuit bottoms is if they’ve got a designer label attached. Who better, then, than kings of the jet-set, Missoni, to design my ideal travel trouser. Comfortable, chic and the perfect partner to my other airport companion – a lightweight leather biker from The Kooples.

READ BETWEEN THE LINES — Carmel Gill, Stylist
I’m one of those really annoying people to travel with. My fear of flying means I’m a constant fidget that never sleeps. In my hand luggage then is an assortment of gadgets (Frends headphones and an i-Pad always), sweets (bags of Haribo) and books to keep my mind occupied for the long haul. Alongside a copy of the latest EW mag (obviously) you’ll find Caroline de Maigret’s How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are.
