Here at Who What Wear UK, we’re all about bringing you the latest and greatest shopping edits, trend reports and cult beauty straight from the front line. But we’re also about inspiration and exploration, with a love of women who are unafraid of playing with their style. At the beginning of 2020 we launched a travel-inspired series Fernweh Diaries where some of the industry’s most free-spirited, adventurous women travelled the world and reported back on what they found. Fernweh is a German word that means to have a craving for travel and adventure, something we relate to—now more than ever. Little did we know how the world would change this year, but we will continue to share these travel stories to allow you to experience some wanderlust from the comfort of your living room. After all, escapism has arguably never been so important.
In this latest installment, cool girl Jessica Skye—DJ, yogi and influencer—shares her love for Los Angeles’s laid-back culture, and documents the week of sun and surf she had before travel restrictions were put in place.
Any trip I take needs to be an adventure. I just love to feel free, and throwing yourself into new locations with new people and new experiences does the trick for me. It makes you grow as a person, keeps your mind open and offers constant perspective, growth and inspiration. That’s why I’m so drawn to Chloé’s new Nomade Absolu fragrance—the fresh scent reminds me of the excitement of picking up and exploring. Travelling isn’t on the cards for anyone for a while, and even though we don’t know when we will be able to explore beyond our own neighbourhoods, I have found comfort in revisiting past travel memories and thinking of places I’d love to go back to one day. The place I will always revisit is Los Angeles.
