The Essentials for Summer Packing

Christina Garofalo

In packing for a summer getaway, whether to the beach or to a European city, a well-edited list of functional garments is as essential for the trip as a good pair of headphones for a flight. Here are five must-have items to make your summer travel a breeze. - Christina Garofalo

The Adventurer aviator sunglasses from Silhouette (www.silhouette.com) are made of ultralightweight, virtually indestructible titanium, with enough flexibility to form to your face ($300).

Brioni (www.brioni.com) offers eight new swimwear prints that range from playfully kitsch to subdued, all in a slim and flattering fit. Each pair ($350) folds up into a matching travel bag (included) and can be complemented by a matching towel ($750) to complete the look.

Thelightweight Sennheiser IE 800 headphones (en-us.sennheiser.com) are the perfect travel companion. The brand’s new extrawide-bandwidth driver packs high-frequency details akin to those from a pair of top-quality over-ear headphones into compact earbuds on a tangle-resistant cable ($1,000).

The weekend tote from Ghurka’snew Walker Collection (www.ghurka.com) is crafted with the adventurer in mind. The weekender-sized carryall ($595) is made of heavy-gauge cotton twill with leather reinforcements along the edges and solid-brass hardware.

Warm days and cool nights call for a jacket that can be folded and tucked in your bag without the worry of wrinkles. The new nylon travel jacket by Canali (www.canali.it) is ultralightweight and wrinkle resistant, has a detachable hood, and can be rolled up into a sleek pouch ($1,125).
