  • Laura Bailey Explores Soho House, Istanbul

    Last time ( the first time) I flew to Istanbul, sleeping in Europe and spying on Asia across the Bosphorus, it was with intrepid curiosity and two hyperactive kids in tow. From the pirate treasure of Topkapi Palace to the underground labyrinth Cisterns, we played hide-and seek amidst ancient architectural wonders.

  • Shop The Marrakech Souk

    The oceanic and storied souk, a true maze of a marketplace, is a shopaholic’s dream. Within it, tiny open-fronted stores sell spices and lanterns, pottery and leather bags, sequined slippers and rose water. It’s worth visiting simply for the atmosphere and its almost Biblical setting. If you see something you like, haggle ruthlessly (with a smile), always starting at a quarter of the suggested price.
  • Just Don't Call it Panama

    There are many types of Panama hats, but they all have one thing in common: they’re made in Ecuador. According to legend, it was the Americans who coined the term “Panama” after the press ran photographs of Theodore Roosevelt wearing a hat as he inspecting the Panama Canal- actually he had just borrowed the hat from the Ecuadorian president moments before the photographers arrived. In spite of this big misnomer, the name stuck and in 2012 this humble handmade topper was designated a UNESCO symbol of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Today the Panama hat lives on as both a symbol of enduring artisan craft and style, check out our favorite ways to wears this classic.
