Fashion month is a time for inspiration, forward thinking and escapism. Traditionally, according to a strict schedule, which sees the lifestyle move between New York, London, Milan and Paris, a brand has to do something special to stand out. As the industry evolves, fewer labels seem tied to downtown establishments, instead sending guests to far-flung exotic destinations guaranteed to impress. This is a level of creativity that fosters bigger picture thinking. The question “where?” it sparks interest long before the invitation arrives, and conversations about the experience gather a level of excitement that transcends the clothes. It’s a tact that Chanel and Fendi have flirted with for years, but now Jacquemus and Christian Dior are leading the charge, unveiling collections against some of the world’s most breathtaking settings.
Undiscovered, unpretentious or simply beautiful, these are the destinations to add to your Fashion Week-inspired bucket list.
