Where does Rajat Parr shop when he travels?
Definitely art shops. I try to go to some antique stores. On this one trip to Bali, I went to an art store and now half my house is decorated with Balinese art. I took half a shipping container and brought back my tables and chairs. You feel like you brought back something way worth it.
One of my favorite clothing stores is Billy Reid, and it is based in Charleston. So every time I go to Charleston, I go straight to Billy Reid. It makes me feel good. It offers a sense of place.
I’m a chocolate fiend. There’s a small chocolatier called Patrick Roger in Paris, and the chocolates are unbelievable. So I always go there, and they have these single-origin chocolates from Indonesia or Guatemala or Venezuela. Every time I go there, I bring some back for sure.
