Your travel itineraries of choice include going on a safari at the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya, bustling through the souks of Marrakech, and riding an elephant in Thailand. You pine for adventurous travels, and your style unquestionably reflects your wanderlust. You prefer a straw tote over an Hermès bag, you’ll always opt for separates with plenty of pockets, and your neck is draped effortlessly with bohemian-chic beads.

You stash your La Mer moisturizer, Eve Lom mist, and vintage Hermès silk scarf in your Dior Oblique Tote Bag—monogrammed with your name, of course. Your essential travel layers consist of a Chanel tweed jacket and a Loro Piana cashmere cardigan—exuding a luxuriously chic, polished, and put-together look, accented with your vintage Cartier Love bracelet and Chanel pearls. If they don’t serve caviar on the plane, you’ll always have a jar on hand to make any in-flight meal better.
