Summer is always the height of the travel season, but there are some people lucky enough to make travel a consistent hobby. Anna Laub is one of them. The Prism designer best known for her sunglasses and swimwear (she also added bags) lives in London, but is constantly packing her bags for trips to New York, Paris and Miami for the swim shows. She has the vacation style to prove it. Her favorite destination? Positano, Italy. Makes sense for a sun-loving person who is also a self-proclaimed city girl at heart. Also, the perfect place to sport those sunglasses and retro swimsuits she’s known for.
To help inspire a little vacation style of your own, we caught up with Anna to see how she maintains that understated, chic look she’s so famous for even when she's thousands of miles from home. From a travel uniform that includes Prism’s leopard espadrilles to her go-to cover-up (one of her boyfriend’s shirts of course—and she’s one of those girls that can totally pull that off), the designer shares her everything you need to get your summer wardrobe vacation-ready.
