Chloe Malle, Vogue Contributing Editor “I can basically sleep standing upright in the check-in line so I don’t need that much help, but traveling in pajamas definitely gets me in the right state of mind. Recently I’ve been wearing my J.Crew x Drake’s silk unicorn set to fly and it settles me right in! I also use Mila Moursi’s Aromapure Oil to help combat moisture-sucking plane air and because it smells like woody roses. I keep all my in-flight toiletries in an Anya Hindmarch case; it’s the best for the TSA because it’s see-through. I also have a navy Slip silk eye mask that I love and keep with my Bose headphones, which are the real secret to in-flight sleep success!” Anya Hindmarch Kawaii In-Flight Case, $312, net-a-porter.com; Slip Embroidered Silk Eye Mask, $45, net-a-porter.com; Mila Moursi Aromapure Serum Moisturizing Oil, $160, nordstrom.com; J.Crew Collection x Drake pajama top in Midnight Unicorn, $140, jcrew.com Photo: (Clockwise from top left) Courtesy of Jcrew; Courtesy of net-a-porter.com; Courtesy of Nordstrom; Courtesy of anyahindmarch.com
Virginia Smith, Vogue Fashion and Accessories Market Director “I use Jao the minute I get on the plane to clean everything. Plus, it has a relaxing lavender scent that helps me forget I’m on a plane. Goe Oil is a multipurpose remedy that keeps my skin, lips, and hair from becoming dry. And my Pashko pants are my go-to for an overnight flight.” Jao Refresher, $10, freepeople.com; Jao Goe Oil All Over Body Oil, $48, needsupply.com; Pashko Imagine Insanely Comfy Long Haul Flight Pants, $118, pashko.com Photo: (Clockwise from top left) Courtesy of freepeople.com; Courtesy of needsupply.com
Catherine Piercy, Vogue.com Beauty Director “My number-one rule is to bring a favorite warm sweater and your own travel blanket—who can sleep in those subarctic cabins otherwise? Always get a window seat so you can rest your head against something, because, really, those neck pillows are useless! A sleep mask is key, as are lip balm and hand cream, because it’s impossible to sleep when you feel like a shriveled prune.” Buly 1803 Pommade Concrete Balm, $50, net-a-porter.com; Madeline Thompson Striped Cashmere Eye Mask, $115, net-a-porter.com; Rodin Lip Balm, $34, net-a-porter.com Photo: (Clockwise from top left) Courtesy of net-a-porter.com; Courtesy ofnet-a-porter.com; Courtesy of net-a-porter.com
Alessandra Codinha, Vogue.com Culture Editor “I don’t travel without first stocking up on teas from Physical Graffitea, the proprietor of which I openly refer to as my “witch doctor.” She has a blend called “Sweet Oblivion” that works better than any over-the-counter concoction I’ve tried, and without any sort of chemically induced hangover.” Physical Graffitea Sweet Oblivian Herbal Blend, $8, physicalgraffitea.com; Dr. Alkaitis Organic Nourishing Treatment Oil, $90, alkaitis.com; White + Warren Cashmere Travel Wrap in white, $298, saksfifthavenue.com Photo: (Clockwise from top left) Courtesy of Saks Fifth Avenue; Courtesy of alkaitis.com; Courtesy of phisicalgrafftea.com
Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, Vogue Style Editor-at-Large “I found a beautiful half-cashmere, half-silk eye mask at Jeffrey’s a few years ago and always have it with me. I also always carry a cashmere scarf as an extra blanket/pillow. It’s always nicer to have your own soft scarf to snuggle into. And there is this Tara Harper face oil and mist that makes waking up on the plane a little less painful!” Tata Harper Beautifying Face Oil, $48, tataharperskincare.com; Armand Diradourian Cashmere and Silk Eye Mask, $105, mrporter.com; The Elder Statesman Infinity ribbed knit cashmere scarf, $705, net-a-porter.com Photo: (Clockwise from top left) Courtesy of tataharperskicare.com; Courtesy of mrporter.com; Courtesy of net-a-porter.com
Edward Barsamian, Vogue.com Style Editor “It’s only lately that I’ve been able to fall asleep while traveling on-board but I chalk it up to some really good on-board essentials. First thing, a great pair of sunglasses—thank you, Victoria Beckham for that tip!—and my current favorites are Beckham’s mirrored aviators. While in transit, I refresh my face with La Prairie’s Skin Caviar essence-in-lotion. Before landing, I spritz on Jo Malone’s Oud and Bergamot cologne and a dab my skin with Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder’s Morning Aura for a glowy finish. Might seem like a lot of steps but seriously, the only way to get some sleep is to feel—and look your best.” Jo Malone Oud & Bergamot Cologne, $120, jomalone.com; La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion, $250, laprairie.com; Victoria Beckham Classic Victoria Desert Rose Aviators, $425, victoriabeckham.com, Victoria Beckham Morning Aura Illuminating Crème, $95, victoriabeckham.com Photo: (Clockwise from top left) Courtesy of laprairie.com; Courtesy of victoriabeckham.com; Courtesy of victoriabeckham.com; Courtesy of jomalone.com
