#Wanderwednesday - Wandering back in time during New York Fashion Week
If you’re like me and never know where in the world you will be when fashion week rolls around, time seems to slow instead of speed up. As I stream coverage of my favorite collections several thousands of miles away from the chaotic hub of NYC, I can’t help but let my mind wander back in time.
I’ve been following certain designers for years and always look forward to their rich and engaging shows. Diane Von Furstenburg is one such designer, who never disappoints. Her claim to fame is her signature wrap dress which has changed over the years but retained its effortless chic (which is perfect for a frequent-traveler like me).
Diane’s attention to detail has spanned across decades which is why her familiarity with the female form continues to bring us cuts and styles perfect for the modern woman with a classic twist.
Looking for a new option in London? I’ve spent this week @wellesleylondon hotel, in Knightsbridge. Boutique heaven! Add it to your #london list. #wanderwednesdays
New from Wanderlista is #wanderwednesdays: wandering today to Langkawi, and bedding down at The Datai, a jungle-meets-the sea oasis celebrating the art of Malaysian hospitality. I flew JFK to Singapore, connecting in the electric city of Kuala Lumpur, then a quick hop to Langkawi (you can also try the heli…it’s only 45mins).
Spending my time sampling the cuisine’s clash of cultures: gorgeous Thai, Indian, Chinese spices melding together in an explosion of flavors. The hotel celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, but it’s far from dated: a new, re-launch is happening right now, and I’m in the middle of it all.
The biggest negotiation of the day is with the monkey that frequents my terrace. Shall I give him my coconut so he doesn’t steal my blackberry? I decide it’s a smart plan. Negotiation done, I’m off to wander further.
