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.
