Rickie De Sole, Fashion Market and Accessories Director

“I am headed out to Aspen, Colorado for the holiday. While I plan to spend my days skiing, I am most looking forward to visiting the Aspen Art Museum after the slopes close. The Shigeru Ban building is in the center of town and currently has a Julien Schnabel show up: ‘Julian Schnabel Plate Painting 1978-96.”

“I’m going to Iceland in the middle of winter, so I plan on bringing a lot of warm clothing, including a Moncler puffer. The one exception will be an Eres one-piece bathing suit for my dip in the blue lagoon.”

“Men’s swimwear is something of a conundrum, sometimes too risqué, sometimes too conservative. Designers often struggle with the right balance to accommodate clients who can be as picky – and I speak from personal experience here, ahem – if not more than their female counterparts. While I’m in Florida this holiday, I’ll be hitting the beach in George Sotelo’s 2-year-old label Thorsun. The designer has ingenuously figured out that the trick to personable swim shorts for men is a bold, playful print to frame, well, just a hint of skin.”

“I am spending Christmas in London, and I am so excited to stay in one of London’s most iconic hotels – Claridge’s. I’ll need something extra festive to wear for drinks at their Fumoir Bar.”

“I’m heading to Havana for New Year’s Eve, where it’s a far cry from our below freezing temperatures in New York. To keep my hair hydrated and silky smooth, I’m going to bring the newest hair product from celebrity stylist Sam Brocato’s line. Its a gentle cleansing shampoo with quinoa protein and natural oils, so it won’t strip my hair of moisture when it needs it most!”

“I will be going to Harbour Island in the Bahamas for Christmas! It is one of my favorite places to visit in the world because of their pink sand beaches and delicious pina coladas. My favorite shop on the island owned by India Hicks is called the Sugar Mill and is a great place to find beautiful kaftans and candles.”
