The Bearable Lightness of Packing

on Design, Style, Travel  

If you haven’t seen it yet, this short video from fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg is definitely worth a watch. Even if you’re not really sure who she is (I’ll be honest, I didn’t) and don’t really care about fashion, the beautiful and quirky animation is something pretty special.

Since I’m working on my own capsule wardrobe at the moment, I’m loving the quote “If you can figure out your suitcase, you can figure out your life”, and the idea of always being ready for adventure.

Then again… out of 45 items, 24 are pairs of shoes?! Really? Shoes take up so much space – I’m not sure I’d go travelling with more than 4 pairs if I could help it. Then again, I’m sure she doesn’t have to carry her suitcases of shoes around herself. I don’t think I will ever understand the logic of a fashion designer.
