Summer Travel Essentials Jo Malone

Posted on March 10th, 2016 by Candice Lake

Summer Travel Essentials Jo Malone Candice Lake I recently shared my Australian Summer Travel Essentials with Jo Malone.

There is something almost spiritual about summer in Australia, which is why in the 12 years I’ve lived overseas I haven’t missed one yet. As the days become shorter in London and the air icy, I begin to long for those hot summer days soaking up the sun, exploring the bush and having the cool ocean breeze kiss my skin.

I am the world’s worst packer when it comes to work and just bring all my favourite things and figure it out when I arrive. Ironically, when I come home to Australia, I pack very minimally and am incredibly organised.

My suitcase is usually largely taken up by presents for my family and things for my son Arden – he’s taken over my suitcase!

I always pack at least five swimsuits from my favourite Aussie designers, Ephemera and Zimmermann. I wear a lot of my own line, Candidate by Candice Lake, and have a multitude of hats and Turkish towels on rotation that I’ve picked up on my travels.

The only scent I wear during the summer, when I’ve washed away the day, is Jo Malone London’s Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne. It’s the freshest scent – ocean in a bottle – and perfect for dancing the night away under the stars.

My skin is dry at the best of times, so after all the salt water, I like to hydrate and nourish my skin with Jo Malone London Body Crème.

I’m really relaxed about my beauty regimen but crazy about my hair. After years of searching, I’ve found the two perfect colourists: Christine at Valonz in Sydney and Christopher-John at Privé in New York, which is slightly impractical considering I live in London!

They know how to make my naturally blonde hair just a touch blonder, without looking like Barbie, a surprisingly near impossible task for most colourists.

However, when I’m in Australia, I let my hair go wild. I love how the salt water gives my hair lots of body and a natural curl – which is lucky considering my parents live in Noosa and my husband’s parents live on Sydney’s Northern beaches.  We generally set up camp and stay between them for the whole trip.

In Palm Beach I love The Boathouse for breakfast after an early morning swim and Cranky Fins for late afternoon drinks with friends where you can let your hair down after a day in the sun and roll into dinner.

I am really excited to share my Jimmy Choo Chalet-Chic Campaign, shot in Zermatt, Switzerland, with eight of the world’s biggest digital influencers.

I shot two campaigns for Jimmy Choo whilst in Switzerland , “The Snow-Choos campaign 0n top of the Matterhorn (check it out by clicking here) and this one, in a beautiful chalet at night. Having shot a similar campaign with Jimmy Choo in Marrakesh,  it was really exciting doing it again with a new group of girls and in an entirely different (and MUCH COLDER) location.

We stayed high in the mountains of the Swiss Alps and it was my first experience shooting in the snow, let alone 4000 meters up on the Matterhorn Glacier, which was needless to say unforgettable!  I first tried snow boarding on the Matterhorn when I was 19, staying in a little hostel with my best friend, so it was exciting going back – albeit in much chicer settings!

A HUGE thanks to the amazing team at Jimmy Choo, who produced this shoot to perfection so that everything ran so smoothly – no easy feat. The beautiful resort Cervo Zermatt – which kindly opened their resort early to accomodate us, my incredible assistant Matteo, the fantastic hair and make-up team and of course, the 8 beautiful girls who were willing to give it their all, in sub zero temperatures, to create these images – you were all amazing!!
