Escape in Style: James Rosenthal

Who better to offer travel tips then folks who travel on the search for inspiration? We touched base with a few of our fave fashion world insiders to give us the lowdown. Stay tuned for more of these interviews throughout the month.


Escape: Essaouira in Morocco. This is a gorgeous coastal town that takes away all of the touristy things of Marrakech. It’s a wharf town on the coast of Africa and the village is enclosed by Sultan walls. The shopping is refined and edited and more affordable than the bigger cities. The locals are so welcoming and friendly and have an affinity for Americans because Jimmy Hendrix actually owned a house there on the coast. I guess that’s why you can sense a bohemian rock ‘n’ roll vibe pumping through the streets.
Must-Haves: I always take my Made Her Think leather medicine bag (it’s the best travel purse ever), vintage Linda Farrow shades, and my favorite chiffon frock.
Next Stop: Mexico.
