The Gift of Travel

Wearing Roksanda Pre-Fall 2015
What to give someone that has everything? The answer is simple – a priceless experience.
It’s time to dip into the chocolate covered, mulled wine fuelled, cozy Christmas features and I could not be more excited this time around. Why? Because I get to kick it off with a new discovery of mine, Mr & Mrs Smith: a handpicked, well curated selection of the top boutique hotels around the world. Whether we are talking romantic escapes, pampering spa experiences or best kept boutique hotel secrets, you can be sure you’ll find it on Mr & Mrs Smith. Goodbye headless online hotel browsing, you will not be missed.
The luxury-hotel booking service has taken an innovative direction by teaming up with one of the hottest names in fashion right now, designer Roksanda Ilincic, for their ‘Get a Room!’ gift card. It goes without saying that the gift card, covered in Roksanda’s iconic block prints, makes the ideal Christmas gift this year. All you need to do is stick a bow on it. Seriously, can I have one? To bring you an insight into the partnership, we spent a day at the London Edition – a recent addition to the Smith collection and one of my personal favourites in town – draped in Roksanda’s newest collections to have the ultimate Christmas Wishlist come to life. Designer gifts, sold out runway shoes, and an unforgettable night at the Penthouse Suite, just a little hint of what to buy me this year. The Christmas countdown has officially started.
