City Cool: Travel

Wanderlust Wants: Travel in style with these globally inspired delights and must-see destinations.

GREEN SCENES: If leaving a minimal carbon footprint is on your mind, then you’re in luck. KanXuk Blue Maya Resort, the Tesla of Mexican resorts, is situated on the Sian Ka’an biosphere coastline and is quickly making a name for itself as a self-sustaining property by generating its own energy, purifying its water and maintaining its own fruit and vegetable nursery.

The Power of Jewelry

Pack the power of spirituality on your next trip. Musa Jewelry’s Unconditional Love collection of luxe beaded bracelets includes stones based on their energy and power. It’s no wonder Musa is loved by celebrities such as Beyonce, Uma Thurman and Jennifer Lopez.

Pack At It

Carry your travel items in style with the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup collection, released just in time for the June finale of the famed sailing competition, which celebrates its 35th edition.


Every trip needs good reading material. Explore the colorful history of one of the most revered shoe designers of the last century with Manolo Blahnik: The Art of Shoes (Rizzoli USA). Blahnik draws inspiration from the likes of Pablo Picasso and Zaha Hadid, creating shoes renowned for their artistry and architecture. Personal anecdotes and original sketches from the designer adorn this beautifully illustrated book, which will be released in April.

Southern Exposure

One of the hottest destinations on the East Coast is the charming state of South Carolina, and an introduction to the Old South doesn’t get much better than at Montage Palmetto Bluff. Nestled within 20,000 acres of coastal nature, Montage Palmetto Bluff features some good ol’ southern amenities, including a shooting club, a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course and Southern-inspired food at its Jessamine restaurant.

Tropico Italiano

The spirit and culture of southern Italy are embodied in Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2017 collection, Tropico Italiano. Full of brightly colored shoes, richly embroidered dresses and rainbow sequins, the collection reveals the designers’ view that true style is eternal and needs not be influenced by seasonal rules or codes.
