Stylist + Blogger Kavita Cola's Holiday Picks
Of the many talented fashion bloggers out there today, it takes a certain edge to stand out. Enter Kavita Cola. A Central Saint Martins alumnus, the London-based stylist and editor of her own eponymous blog recently went to Marrakech where she put together a full Chinti look (below). We caught up with her upon return to find out more about the trip, her favourite travel destinations, style tips, and fave pieces from our new collection.
What drew you to Marrakech?
I've always wanted to visit Marrakech. I've seen so much imagery from there and the colours, architecture and culture is so exciting.
Why did you pick this outfit for Marrakech?
Whilst the weather was beautiful during the time of my visit it wasn't quite as sweltering as it looked so I wanted something more than shorts and a tank. I love long skirts and over the knee cuts, I think they look so chic yet casual and are having a real come back at the moment. The material is also comfortable against bare skin which is a key element for me when it comes to picking outfits.
Where else are you going this spring/summer?
I've just also gone to Cannes (below) for the film festival and Toronto for a wedding.
What other travel destinations are you always happy to return to?
I love Ibiza, India and Vietnam.
A hotel you could live in:
The Leela in Goa.
What are the best things about summer?
Bright mornings and long light evenings, wearing dresses during the day which is something I hardly ever do in the winter. And - getting a tan. Not only the colour glow element on your skin but everything from skin and hair seems to have more life in it.
Here are Kavita's top picks to pack for holidays from our new collection - stripey, crisp, and breezy:
Best meal you had in Morocco?
Tagines. I have a newfound love for this dish and want to start making them at home.
How would you describe the Chinti and Parker girl?
The Chinti girl likes to be cool and comfortable. She has a passion for style and fashion however isn't led by every seasonal trend out there. She loves to invest in classic pieces of great quality with a few little quirks along the way, as she has great attention to detail.
Best-dressed woman in history?
One of my favourites on the more modern-day end is Chloe Sevigny.
Your favourite fashion moment?
Kate Moss in the 90s when she shot for Calvin Klein. So simple yet iconic for that time. That kind of simplicity of jeans and bare skin and t-shirts never go out of fashion.
What’s your top style tip to live by? Wear what works for you. Everyone has a different body shape and self perception so it's all about dressing in a way that make you feel confident in yourself- as that's all what really matters.
