Aje’s Ed­wina Robin­son shares me­mories of her hon­ey­moon spent in Italy and France.

It was past hol­i­days that led to new­ly­weds Ed­wina Robin­son and Felix For­est to ded­i­cate their hon­ey­moon to Italy – by way of France, For­est’s home coun­try. “It was four weeks, but still wasn’t long enough,” says Robin­son, who, along with Adrian Nor­ris, is cre­ative di­rec­tor of the fash­ion la­bel Aje, which is stocked in Myer and its own stores. Fol­low­ing their wed­ding at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, the cou­ple trav­elled across Saint-Paul de Vence, Paris, Si­cily, Rome, Tus­cany and Ravello. What was the high­light of your hon­ey­moon? Ed­wina Robin­son: “There were two. La Colombe d’Or – steeped in such ex­tra­or­di­nary art his­tory and beau­ti­ful ro­man­tic sur­rounds, it was the per­fect place to re­lax and be in­spired. Also Villa Scarpariello, an ex­tra­or­di­nary old fortress on the Amalfi coast.” What did you pack? ER: “Too much! For a sum­mer hol­i­day you only need a few favourite sum­mer­time things. To travel light is true lux­ury.” What was the big­gest sur­prise? ER: “Our hon­ey­moon was full of amaz­ing sur­prises, be­cause some­times it’s best not to know too much so the ex­pec­ta­tion does not over­whelm the reality.” What ad­vice would you give on plan­ning a hon­ey­moon? ER: “Keep it sim­ple. Pick one or two ex­tra­or­di­nary places that you would like to visit that al­low for re­lax­ation as well.” What do you wish you’d known be­fore your hon­ey­moon? ER: “To al­low time for re­flec­tion. The mo­ments pass by so quickly; you want to make sure to savour and re­flect upon ev­ery­thing.”
