What does Michael Chiarello always travel with?
I have a Varvatos suede jacket that’s my go-to. You can wad it up, throw it into a backpack and just pull it out, shake it. It’s brilliant. And a pair of zipper shoes that can just come off. I hate ending up with lace-up shoes that take four minutes unlacing and re-lacing — it’s too much. There’s a great San Francisco design shop called Chrome. I just bought one of their messenger backpacks that’s just perfect. It’s a laptop bag/backpack that doesn’t look like I’m from Hewlett-Packard. Also, my iPad — a pre-downloaded iPad that I’ve done three days before so you have those four films in case you get one leg of travel that doesn’t have any video.
