KULALA World Tour: Final Stop…Italy!by Team Yoyokulala
We’re always on the move, but in the last week and the ones to come, we have and will really be on the move. We’re basically touring the world here, give or take a continent – and we want to take you along on the journey, from L.A. to Tokyo. (Yeah, we did just quote Iggy. Go deal.) Aside from the usual stuff on Instagram – don’t forget to check in on our Instastories every day! – we will also be loading you up with travel-centric content inspired by our destinations. Beauty tips, style lessons, shopping, travel guides and – the motherlode – our coverage of the biggest cruise runway shows. We’re covering all the bases.
Go through the goodies below, then come back as often as you want in the next month to check out the new stuff. If you want updates straight to your mailbox, just sign up for our newsletter through the little box on the left. Go, go, go! We only send love (and party invites), promise.
DESTINATION #1: MALDIVES
Build your summer vacation wardrobe with our round-up of the season’s chicest, non-cliché swimsuits and a basket bag (though we think it is perfectly fine to take it out of the beach if you want). If you find yourself with only hours to spare before that flight to island paradise, we’ve come up with a packing cheat sheet. Expecting a candle-lit dinner by the beach? Don’t forget to pack a take-anywhere dress. It’s better than an LBD. Be extra sure to take care of your skin and hair, too. We even got five super chic women to reveal their summer beauty essentials. If you’re not going anywhere sunny, don’t cry – just travel with us mentally with our Maldives travel diary.
DESTINATION #2: PARIS
There’s something about Paris that puts you in a mood for berets – and we’ve got plenty right here. Perfect for all those times when you want to act all nonchalant while sipping that caffe at the city’s frou-frou dining spots. You know what they say: when in Rome, do as the Romans do, except Paris. Actually, not really Paris either, since we were all temporary transported to ancient Greece, courtesy of Chanel’s Cruise 2018. The clothing was divine, the shoes and jewellery were major outfit expressos. It was nearly impossible to just pick 10 of our favourite pieces from the show. If the runway beauty could be bagged, we would add that to cart as well. Machines that replicate runway makeup exactly don’t exist – yet – but fortunately, the products that went into creating Chanel’s look do. And we’ve got the exact recipe for it.
DESTINATION #3: LOS ANGELES
Heading to Los Angeles this summer? We’ve got you covered. First, cut your travel research by half with our list of five restaurants and cafes you should head to, courtesy of Chriselle Lim. Then, head to the outskirts of L.A. and into Calabasas, where Dior held its recent Cruise 2018 show. If the two-for-one weather in L.A. is giving you packing troubles, look to our styling guide created in collaboration with Chloe and Net-a-Porter. Don’t forget to bring the sunglasses! As you count down the days to that vacay, escape with us mentally with our L.A. travel diary – In-N-Out burgers included.
DESTINATION #4: KYOTO
There’s always so much to do in Japan. Instead of the usual Tokyo, we headed to Kyoto to witness the unveiling of Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2018 collection at the stunning Miho Museum. (The show’s over, but you can still watch it on repeat here.) If you find yourself taking the JR back to Tokyo – because really, who doesn’t love Tokyo? – don’t forget to check out our guide to vintage shopping in the city. You’ll thank us for it. Hint: vintage Chanel.
DESTINATION #5: ITALY
Ah, the land of pasta and burrata, will you ever cease to amaze? We made multiple stops in Italy, first dropping by Rome for a soiree with Bulgari and to visit Palazzo Fendi, before hopping over to Campania – where we dabbled in a little dress over pants action – and finally Florence for Gucci’s Cruise 2018 show. With that, our world tour comes to an end. In case you’re about to embark on one of your own, don’t forget to check our last minute packing guide.
