How the Solid & Striped Designer Packs for Island Travel
There’s nothing more synonymous with summer than a Solid & Striped swimsuit. The brand that has singularly made one-pieces hot again is a favorite of Taylor Swift—not to mention fashion editors everywhere—and is known for simple, classic silhouettes in, as the name implies, solids and stripes (with a healthy dose of Bardot-worthy gingham). Here, the mastermind behind the latest styles, Solid & Striped’s design director Michelle Copelman, opens up her suitcase and shares what she brought for a recent trip to Harbour Island for a high-wattage photo shoot with Carine Roitfeld.

Harbour Island in the Bahamas for the epic Solid & Striped ‘Swim Team’ photoshoot. We stayed at the gorgeous Pink Sands Resort and shot the campaign right on their pristine beach. We flew into Nassau and were boated to the island. Traveling and working with 13 supermodels and Carine Roitfeld was so inspiring and surreal. What topped it off was dancing to “That's the Way I Like It” by KC and The Sunshine Band with the entire crew.
I bring two bags—both from Herschel Supply Co.
Over-packer or under-packer?
I would say I’m a minimalist and have become really good at repurposing outfits. Age and experience have helped me be a much better packer.
