My Suitcase Secrets.
Name: Uzma Bozai
Occupation: Founder of Luxury Womenswear brand, Uzma Bozai
Destination: Koh Samui, Thailand. We stayed in a friends private villa and had the blissful pampering with 2 hour long massages overlooking the sea.
What essential items do you never travel without? I love Aesop geranium shower gels and body creams, they remind me of summer holidays spent in Pakistan and thick socks to pad around on the plane.
What’s your holiday style?
Travelling with my daughter dictates that everything I wear must look good with flats! Most of the day is then spent on the beach which is the only time I can sit still with an active toddler. So I wear our printed kaftans in azure blues and tropical corals and am instantly transported to holiday mode.
What are your holiday must- packs?
A bright coloured, oversized shirt dress is a must have for me. Our Malih shirt dress is fantastic as it can double up as a cover up by the pool and is still wow with jewellery or heels for dinner.
A statement scarf is my go to accessory whenever I travel – it’s great to add colour to classic separates when travelling and once I arrive I’ll end up taking it everywhere shade from the sun and warmth in the evening.
This summer, I’ll be channeling the 70’s boho trend with our Parvin Kaftan – I plan to wear it over jeans and a tee as well as as a cover up on the beach.I also love blue and white during the summer – it’s so fresh and an absolute classic. Our hilda top and trousers are perfect for summers spent in the UK.
Best packing tip: Pick one colour pop and pack a statement necklace and sandals in the same colour to instantly brighten simple whites.
Best packing tip someone gave you? Our NY sales agent recommended rolling samples when they fly across the Atlantic to stop them creasing, it’s magic!
What kind of luggage do you travel with? Our Briggs and Riley suitcases have done countless continents and still look cool and rugged. Also really practical with countless storage compartments.
What do you buy on your travels?
I’m a magpie, so anything locally made that catches my eye. Textiles, art, antiques. I found a vintage brass tea pot and urn in a market in Toulouse that takes pride of place on our fireplace.
