Are you looking for ethical travel outfit ideas? The Look is a section to highlight brands highly committed to sustainability and an inspirational mood-board for your next modern conscious traveller look!
The Look puts a spotlight on practical and light pieces that you can easily use for both day and night looks, always in the spirit to pack light luggage.
For the first issue of this Journal – dreaming about warmer days – I thought about a look to wear on a summer day in Tuscany. I chose these shades and shapes being inspired by the Tuscan countryside colours and its rolling hills’ lines.
