The Art of Travel re-styled. We con­sider four types of trav­ellers, Gen­tle­man Ex­plorer, Creative Spirit, A-lis­ter and Jet­set­ter.

What­ever trends are cur­rent, and wher­ever you travel to, the like­li­hood is that your un­der­ly­ing style will re­main rea­son­ably con­stant, a style de­vel­oped by life­style, ca­reer and pref­er­ences. Sea­sonal col­lec­tions come and go but es­sen­tially we all dress to suit the way we see our­selves in the world.

Con­sider four types of trav­eller: The Gen­tle­man Ex­plorer,

with a clas­sic and re­fined ad­ven­tur­ing style; the Creative Spirit for whom colour and whimsy is ev­ery­thing; the A-lis­ter,

pro­pelled by the cut­ting edge and tech­nol­ogy; and the Jet­set­ter,

who may need to com­bine busi­ness with plea­sure.

These trav­el­ling types are not pri­mar­ily geared by sea­sonal trends, but by per­son­al­ity and life­style. Of course, you might not con­sider your­self any one of these types, but per­haps it’s worth start­ing to think about what sort of trav­eller you think you are.

So the idea of match­ing a trav­el­ling cap­sule wardrobe to your per­son­al­ity is a given. But to take one more step and find a lo­ca­tion and des­ti­na­tion that is style and per­son­al­ity ap­pro­pri­ate? Well if you in­sist. We have ear­marked four of the most ex­cit­ing ho­tel launches of 2017: Ho­tels that should res­onate with the per­son­al­i­ties be­hind each wardrobe, but that are es­sen­tial for all of us to have on our bucket lists, for 2018 and be­yond.
