Springtime in Santa Barbara: Destination Dressing with Armarium

Destination dressing. It’s a simple idea, yet somehow, its execution can be tricky. With only a suitcase or two, how can you ensure that A) you’ll love your outfits once you’ve arrived and B) you’ll have back-ups in case they don't work?

 

At Armarium this Spring, our goal is to make sure that your jet set wardrobe is as stocked—and spectacular—as possible. Getaways are a perfect time to wear your dream statement piece—the mood is upbeat, the backdrop, likely awesome, and the energy is palpable. Been eyeing a voluminous Carolina Herrera checked plaid gown? Check the box: yes. How about rainbows from Missoni? Paint the town polychrome! Remember, too, that Armarium can also save you the hassle of packing—we offer shipping services both ways, to wherever you’re heading. Easy!

 

To celebrate our wanderlust, we recently flew west to Santa Barbara’s legendary Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel. It’s a spot that’s been favored over time by everyone from Bing Crosby to Zsa Zsa Gabor to Katy Perry. (Chic!) The Biltmore—and by extension Santa Barbara—is an ideal outpost to capture our nomadic spirit; it rests far and away from big city life, but it’s still cosmopolitan, albeit with a sun-streaked, relaxedly polished lean. Imagine the wardrobe possibilities.

 

Here, along with a bonus short film, check out some of our current all-star pieces—from a fuchsia cut-out Roberto Cavalli gown to dramatic ruffles from Alberta Ferretti—shot in situ at The Biltmore. Wherever your travels may take you this season, let us handle the sartorial legwork—we’ve got something for everywhere.
