Bulgari Hotels & Resorts, for sure, and Armani Hotels. Favourite resort: every Aman in the world. My next one: Amangiri Resort in the Utah desert.
The Italian seaside near Portofino or somewhere under the mountain with a river or a lake. Essentials: my boyfriend and my beautiful dog Kim.
I travel in black or dark blue and I wear a hoodie. I bring my iPad with me for Netflix. As soon as you are on the plane, relax and think you’re already in the hour of the next destination.
WHAT’S IN THE BAG?
iPhone, wallet and a Moleskine.
I don’t suffer from jet lag. The secret? Sleep on the plane. I love sleeping on the plane. I can sleep naturally without pills for eight hours.
MOST MEMORABLE TRIP
I don’t have one memorable travel destination. I have a travel partner-in-crime who can make every travel destination memorable. He’s Andrea, my long-time boyfriend. Every destination – Bali, Cuba, Japan, Thailand, China and, of course, Italy – becomes special with him.
MOST INSPIRING PLACE
I find inspiration everywhere but I have to admit that contemporary art districts – in Chelsea, Manhattan, central LA, Paris, London, the Fondazione Prada in Milano and Zurich – are fuel for my brain and they make me happy.
Art galleries, very good restaurants and anywhere a very good barman can do a proper Martini.
I do a deep scrub in the early morning, on the face and body, once a week and I use a lot of body cream every day. For the face, I always use a serum before applying cream and I get a haircut twice a month. I do Crossfit, Crossfit and Crossfit, and don’t diet. I eat well and healthy every day.
Be unique. Be beyond. Don’t let anyone limit yourself. Fashion is your physical imagination. Clothes are like real thoughts. Don’t go for total looks. Try to put on something personal.
Fondazione Prada, Pravda Vodka Bar, Ristorante Giacomo Bistrot, Orto Botanico di Brera park, the Duomo rooftop, pizza at Le Specialità and running and playing with my dog at Giardini di Porta Venezia.
FAVOURITE SPRING/SUMMER 2018 ITEMS
Balenciaga Triple S trainers and oversize shirts. Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana coloured suits. Versace’s historical prints.
I hate light luggage. For me, light luggage is like a vocabulary with few words. How can you communicate with a few words?
I’m the worst in packing. I really hate to pack.
DINNER PARTY DOS
Smile and don’t pretend to be perfect or to give the perfect party. Listen to people and help people to interact and express themselves. I like the idea of a place where people are free to be whatever they want to be. And serve a lot of Martini cocktails, of course.
