Michael Kors's Fashionable Escapes
As a city person, when I really want to get away, I find that nothing beats those locations that combine natural beauty with a bit of luxury. The dream is to unplug from the world and recharge my batteries with a little time in the sand and sun.
I love that there's beauty everywhere in Big Sur, but it's also very laid-back. The best part? There's almost no cell reception. The views are mesmerizing, even if you've been there a hundred times. Phuket has long been one of my favorite destinations. I go to Capri at least twice a year—usually in the fall and spring because that's when I'm in Italy for work, and the island is at its most beautiful and peaceful. The simple pleasures of life there are so abundant—the sun, the sea, the unforgettable plates of pasta—it's impossible to not be happy. Here, my favorite spots to stay, eat, and do.

This stretch of the California coast is my obsession of the moment, as you can see in my Fall 2014 collection.
Amanpuri is dramatic and lush, with remarkable views of the Andaman Sea and the most knowledgeable massage therapists.
You must rent a boat—the water is like liquid jade—and go over to breathtaking James Bond Island. I never leave Phuket without seeing a performance at Phuket Simon Cabaret, an over-the-top drag show.
