As a CEO over the last few years I have learnt the art to get the maximum suitcase space whilst on a work trip. A business trip calls for some serious packing skills. For me due to my lifestyle and access to luxury travel. I have to decide how to pack for meetings, after hours drinks and including all my technical equipment for filming, photography and some epic serious charging cables.
- Fold It Up
The art of folding up is a skill in itself. So I make sure I place all clothing on one hanger inside a suit bag. Then the bag is folded twice only in my case. So when I arrive, its simply unfold, unzip and hang.
Pouches are my life saver for electrics, toiletries and sundries. I opt for outdoor brands as the case dividers are robust and the zips are excellent.
- Hand Luggage
This is like choosing a pair of shoes. But for me it has to have a zip outside for easy access to my passport and ticket. Cases that have extended zips, so you can add more are a cheeky way to create more space.
- Black And Brown
These are colours that look great and where my capsule wardrobe separates work together tonally. I can create multiple outfits from minimal pieces. Wrap silk dresses are amazing and very lite. They work a treat both day and night.
- Smart Jackets
I always wear two jackets on the plane for saving flight space. I tie the second one which is normally thinner, around my neck. Very Italian thing to do. I never wear clothes on the plane where the outfits can get dirty or ruined. What I wear is leather as it’s easy to clean if it gets dirty. Looks very chic and if it does end up filthy. I use leather cleaner to sort it out. Hotels always have leather cleaner, or dedicated shoe shining services, just ask to borrow proper cleaning materials.
- The Bomber Jacket Dress
New in stores is the over size unisex bomber dress. Works well with leggings, jeans or in case it’s hot nothing at all. I chose silk which is perfect for hotter climates. I wear dark blue add some pearls and its travel chic.
Very simple wear it all. Pearls are so versatile and choose an expensive watch. It can get you a flight upgrade if you’re travelling alone. So make sure you flaunt it whilst checking in.
- Boots & Foldable Pump
Very challenging, but I have mastered this to a T. Expensive knee high leather boots. They team up with anything. I opt normally for a dark, brown, dark blue or black. My bling fold able pumps in different colours are just amazing for dining out. If trainers are your thing. I wear my leather trainers, you can run in them, travel in them and they turn heads every single time.
- Leather Backpacks
On most airlines you can carry an extra luggage for your laptop and anything electronic. I always opt for a leather backpack. They look smart and perfect for business. Have a safe flight.
