While the world is still in lockdown, we thought it would be fun to take you on a little virtual getaway. We’re sharing our favourite travel destinations and inspirations for what to wear and how to accessorise your outfit for each location. You can either re-read this post when you’re planning your next trip when it’s safe or dream about a vacation with us today, dress up and treat yourself to your favourite handbag from Adelaide.

Katya Komarova Mono Purse in Black
Jacquemus Shirt Dress, Proenza Schouler Heeled Sandals, Oscar de la Renta earrings
We thought we would start with somewhere close to home which, if you’re from South Australia too, you can visit this weekend. We love getting amongst nature, going for long drives and tasting the amazing wine that the Barossa has to offer. For a day trip or even a weekend adventure, we recommend going on a wine tour with your partner or friends and switching off from technology with great conversation. The perfect style for this setting is elegant and relaxed, we would wear a beautiful flowy or shirt dress (only wear white if you’re game), sandals with a heel, silver jewellery and our Mono Purse in black. If you’re visiting during the autumn/winter months, remember to bring a coat.

Hong Kong fashion is known to be cosmopolitan and luxurious mixed with creativity and street style influences. If we were visiting the city-state steeped in culture and history, we would be gazing at its incredible skyline. The top of Victoria Peak and the Kowloon Waterfront are two of the best places to see the skyline in all its glory. The latter location is perfect to watch the nightly symphony of laser light show set to music. At night, we would wear an asymmetrical black dress and jewelled heels with our Handle/Choker 12 chains on our Mini Mono Purse for a glamorous look.

Katya Komarova Phone Bag in Brown with Wide Cotton Strap
Acne Studios Jeans, Loewe Trench Coat, Magda Butrym T-Shirt, Golden Goose Sneakers, Ben-Amun Necklace
If we were in London, we’d opt for a relaxed and comfortable look which is still tailored and chic for sightseeing. As I’m sure you know, London can get pretty chilly so we would wear a layered look with a trench coat (of course), jeans, a tee, dainty jewellery, comfortable sneakers and our Phone Bag as you can wear it cross body. We would start the day at The British Museum, then a ride on the London Eye to observe the beautiful city and we would finish with shopping and dinner on Oxford St - a perfect day.

Martin Grant Midi Skirt, Cara Cara Top, Castaner Espadrilles, Burberry Silk Scarf, Cartier Watch
Who could resist a trip to the Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum when visiting Paris! The city of love calls for a romantic yet timeless outfit. We would wear a sophisticated skirt, feminine top and accessorise the look with a beautiful silk scarf, wedges, a classic watch and our Bucket Bag so you have enough room to fit your macaroons and all your belongings. If we’re heading out for dinner after a day of sightseeing, we would switch the wedges for heels and add a blazer for warmth.
Saint Petersburg, Russia

Katya Komarova Mini Mono Purse in Black with Cotton Strap and Square Ring Handle
Alexandre Vauthier Leather Pants, Monse Plaid Jacket, Jimmy Choo Ankle Boots, Oscar de la Renta Earrings
Our dream day in Saint Petersburg would be spent exploring the city’s incredible architecture, museums and monuments during the day and then at night, if we’re visiting in summer, illuminated by the midnight sun. Then we couldn’t go past attending the opera or ballet at The Mariinsky. Russian fashion is known for luxurious details, and expensive and fabulous looks. We would pair a unique blazer with a lace cami, leather pants, low black boots for day, black jewelled boots for night, earrings and our Mini Mono purse with a cotton strap for day and square ring handle for night.

Mini Tote Bag in Black with Cotton Strap and Square Ring Handle
Versace Jersey Top, Versace Shorts, Versace Bracelet, Versace Sunglasses, Cult Gaia Sandals
For a day in enchanting Florence, we would be feasting our eyes on world-class art and our stomachs on gourmet Tuscan cuisine. Italy is known for colourful maximalism that is also well tailored. This is definitely the time to dress up and have fun with your outfits and include lots of accessories. We would wear our Mini Tote Bag as we would plan to do a lot of shopping! We’d style this with a colourful short and top combo for during the day and white pants for night, also with a chunky gold necklace and heels with sunglasses for when it’s sunny.
