I’ve spoken about MrPorter.com before. It’s the global online luxury retail destination for men’s style. They approached myself and a couple of other influencers from around the world to work with on a new campaign “Mr Porter, on the road”. They wanted our spin on a weekend away and the travel essentials we’d take with us including their new summer pieces.
Mr Porter very generously sent a personalised Travel Kit for everyone involved to help with their getaway. Mine included: ($NZD)
- Want Les Essentiels Grooming bag ($345)
- Mr Porter X Aēsop Travel Kit ($105)
- Personalised Shinola Luggage Tag ($120)
- Frescobol Carioca Swim Shorts ($290)
- Mr Porter X Smythson Leather Notebook ($88)
- Assorted stationary and a copy of their monthly journal, The Mr Porter Post.
We decided to travel to The Bay of Islands in New Zealand to explore the incredible cluster of over 140 small islands, the water was some of the bluest and clearest I’ve ever seen. Before we left we stopped off at Odette’s, one of my favorite eateries in Auckland. The decor is turquoise, blue and white and there’s a huge print by American photographer Slim Aarons poolside looming over us; we couldn’t help but already feel on holiday.
