TRAVEL TO ME...
Travel means inspiration, experiences, exploration, exchange and freedom. I don’t think I would be able to do my job without travel. My travels for work allow me to see the global fashion industry first hand. Without travel, I wouldn’t be able to see or experience new ideas.

MY LAST VACATION
I went to Anguilla not too long ago. I didn’t do much of anything, which was the point of this vacation. I needed a week to disconnect and recharge in the sun and ocean.
My friends and I didn’t know much about it when we first decided to go and it turned out to be one of my favorite vacations.
#1 TRAVEL TIP DON’T OVER-PACK
WHAT I PACK
For me, it’s my own face wash and cologne. I am very particular about these things so I always have them and they must be my brands – Shiseido Men’s Facial Scrub and Dior Homme cologne.
HOW I LIKE TO TRAVEL
“ I love to fly because you can go just about
anywhere in the world. 
IN-FLIGHT ESSENTIALS
Ideally, I sleep. Also, I always try to pre-load my iPad with things that I will want to listen to or watch – music, old episodes of my favorite shows like The Wire, Sports Illustrated videos featuring Michael Jordan and classic movies.

EXPLORING
THE OLD&NEW
Even though I grew up in Taipei and have visited nearly every year since I moved away, I discover something new every time I go back – for example, the emerging café culture and all of the new urban developments.
Always try to experience a new place with a local.
MUST-STOP
SPOT
Tokyo is my favorite place in the world. I love everything about the city – the people, food and shops. For me, it’s the most inspiring place, especially for what I do. I have been so many times but I constantly find new reasons to love it.
MY FAVORITE SOUVENIR
I don’t typically buy souvenirs, but I always buy local snacks and Johnnie Walker Blue Label at the duty free.
TRAVEL TRADEMARK
My travel uniform changes with each trip but it always includes versatile pieces that I can layer; like T-shirts, cashmere sweaters, and cotton pants. I try to be as comfortable as possible – without looking disheveled.
I would love to travel to the Maldives for the ultimate beach vacation. Plus, I hear they are sinking.
