Thinking about this time of year as a chance to have a break from daily life, we put together a collection to inspire your European summer getaway, or you may be thinking to plunge deeper into the cold by taking a break on the slopes, of New Zealand for example.

We got in touch with some of our favourite designers to ask them about their ultimate destinations and how this spurs on their creative projects…

What’s your favourite destination to escape the Melbourne Winter?

NEW YORK of course - but more end of their summer because it’s stinking and I actually love winter in Melbourne because everyone is away so you can actually get some work done haha

What’s the best thing you’ve eaten there?

Pizza or 'Dimes' was great for the wines.

What’s one thing you can’t travel without?

My phone and Sudocrem for the plane zits.

What’s your favourite destination to escape the Melbourne Winter?

My favourite winter escape would have to be Capri. It has so many magical memories for me. I travelled there first with my husband before we had children, then I went again with my whole family when Valentina was 8 months old, and I also attended a wedding of some dear friends when pregnant with my son. Each experience has been so different, and each was memorable for different reasons. I can’t wait to take the kids there and show them how wonderful it is. My first trip to Capri inspired my first proper jewellery collection, and you can’t help but be inspired when you are there.

 

What’s the best thing you’ve eaten there?

Gelato! Everyday! Also lunch at La Fontelina is pretty unbeatable, following by dips in the ocean, and a spritz on the rocks.

 

What’s one thing you can’t travel without?

I would say my family.

What’s your favourite destination to escape the Melbourne Winter?

New Zealand, it's so beautiful in Winter and the buildings have insulation and proper heating so you’re not freezing indoors like in Melbourne.

What’s the best thing you’ve eaten there?

Food wasn’t a highlight I must say — good coffee though!

What’s one thing you can’t travel without?

I always take a hoodie and sleeping pills for a little sleeping cocoon on the plane. And this is so daggy but a sewing kit is essential.
