Shoe Designers' International Inspirations

Paul Andrew

The Place: Patmos, Greece.

The Shoe: The Aphrodite, a silk slingback ($895).

The Trip: Andrew, a onetime protégé of Alexander McQueen, visits the island annually as an escape from New York. “You’ll find a mountaintop monastery and locally cured olives, but I focus on the simple things: the sun and the immense expanse of the sea,” he says. Andrew had the moiré of the shoe triple-dyed to recall the varying shades of the Aegean.

Lauren Santo Domingo's Guide to Cartagena

Lauren Santo Domingo

Lauren Santo Domingo, the founder of online fashion boutique Moda Operandi, considers herself an unofficial guide to Cartagena, Colombia (her wedding to Colombian-born Andres Santo Domingo—held in the ancient walled city—was the society event of 2008). The top stops each time she visits? “I love the Tcherassi Hotel & Spa ($$), which has an airy, sleek vibe,” she says. And La Vitrola ($$$), a Havana-inspired jazz club, “makes the best ropa vieja I’ve had.” Here, what she brings along whenever she visits.

Trip Doctor: 3 Simple Steps for Packing Shoes

There is a definite method to packing shoes for a trip. Here are 3. 

1. If you are not using a shoe bag then keep the soles towards heaven or facing away from your clothes, for obvious reasons; soles are dirty!

2. Shoes are one of the heavier items you will have in your bag so give lots of thought to taking too many. Chose a pair that can be worn in a variety of situations. Along with the one you are wearing, you’ll have enough.

3. Use the edges and corners of your suitcase to ensure every crack and crevice are used.

Beauty Road Test: ILIA Lip Gloss

201307-hd-ilia-lip-glossjpg

Are the latest beauty and wellness products worthy of a spot in your teensy carry-on? T+L Associate Editor Kathryn O’Shea-Evans shares her take.

The product: ILIA lip gloss, $24

Pros: New natural beauty brand ILIA just released an ultra-hydrating collection of lip-glosses in Popsicle-fresh colors. Each is packed with moisturizing ingredients (coconut oil, Shea butter, vitamin E), many of them organic. I adored “Love Buzz,” a Barbie pink shade that gave my lips decidedly grown-up gleam. Bonus: unlike a lot of glosses, it’s not the least bit sticky.

Cons: It only comes in six colors right now, and a couple of them are questionable (Gold? Ox Blood?). But the red, pink, and nude shades are divine.

Verdict:  Packable.

Q: I’m so tired of my swimsuit taking eons to dry. Help! —Kay Ekblad, via e-mail

A: Here’s the solution: this one-piece from Montreal-based Lolë ($70). The paneled “Maui” maillot is made of chlorine-resistant, quick-drying Swim Tech fabric with an über-comfortable four-way stretch. Need something to throw on post-dip? The breathable and anti-wrinkle fabric of Eco Swim by Aqua Green Shirred Side Dress Cover Up ($85) is knitted out of (yes) coffee grounds, making it sustainable by the sea.

Trip Doctor: Tag Heuer's Waterproof Watch

Tag Heuer waterproof watch

Q: We’re going scuba diving in Belize, and I’m looking for a watch that works as well underwater as it does on land. —Anthony Dwyer, Westport, Conn.

A: Just ask the U.S. Navy SEALs, who tested and approved elements of the Tag Heuer Limited Edition Oracle Team USA Aquaracer 500M ($4,200). It’s the latest in sporting chronographs: water-resistant to 1,640 feet, with rhodium-plated hands and a scratch-resistant crystal—and cool-looking, to boot.

Travel Tips from Tim Gunn of Project Runway

201306-hd-tim-gunnjpg

Tim Gunn, the fashion consultant and mentor to the contestants on Lifetime's Project Runway, was standing on the rooftop Garden of New York's Waldorf-Astoria hotel recently, preparing to plant a tree in support of the New York Restoration Project, an environmental nonprofit founded by Gunn's friend Bette Midler. Not only did he dig the hole and plant the tree, he actually tidied up the stray dirt afterward. We asked the dapper Gunn what he takes with him when he travels.
