Ultimate Cool Girl Brianna Lance Reveals Her Travel Essentials
Creative Director, designer, musician, artist, and DJ Brianna Lance is a true renaissance woman. The New York-based multi-hyphenate turned heads during her six-year stint as head designer for Reformation, and has since distinguished herself as master of anything and everything she puts her mind to. With her striking red hair and innate fashion genius (she’s usually sporting some amazing vintage pieces you’ll inevitably want for yourself), Brianna is probably the ultimate in style inspirations, so we were especially excited to catch up with her and find out what she’ll be bringing along on a trip to Jamaica. Take note!
My favorite luggage is military issue bags that you can get at the army navy store. They have amazing big duffels that fit everything—I’ll probably bring two.OVER-PACKER OR UNDER-PACKER?
I used to skew under, but lately I feel like definitely over.WHAT DO YOU PACK IN MULTIPLES?
Nothing really, except maybe underwear and swimsuits. I love Samantha Pleet swimsuits and Only Hearts underwear. I always bring Birkenstocks everywhere I go and Converse white high tops. I also would bring a few dresses, mostly vintage slips, and my Littledoe straw hat.

Jamaica destination essentials
Sunscreen for me because I'm quite fair. I also bring all of my different vitamins and supplements with me everywhere I go. Sunscreen, I use whatever they sell at the airport. I wish I had a more glamorous answer for that. The supplements I take are High Vibe Reishi and Ashwagandha, as well as Moon Deli Mushroom Adaptogen.CARRYON ESSENTIALS?
A sweater, and stevia for my coffee. I also pack Sony ear buds so I can listen to music and Rosebud Salve for my lips. I am currently reading Norman Mailer’s The Fight, so that would be packed in there as well.WHAT'S YOUR BEST PACKING ADVICE?
The rolling method, where you roll everything up instead of folding. It makes everything fit better and wrinkle less.IDEAL AIRPLANE OUTFIT
Vintage Silk Pajamas from 9th Street Haberdashery, and a big sweater from BLK Denim in a soft pink.
