Meet the Stylist: Ilaria Urbinati

by Ilaria Urbinati

Meet the Stylist: Ilaria Urbinati

Hometown: Born in Rome, Italy. Grew up in Paris, France. Currently live in Los Angeles and Brooklyn.

Occupation: Fashion stylist.

Favorite destinations: Austin, Texas, Sitges, Spain, Nashville, Tennessee, Camden, Maine, Tuscany.

Dying to visit: New Orleans. 

Bizarre travel rituals: I usually travel with my "emotional support" animal, my dog Waffle. 

In-flight relaxation regime: I fall asleep before take off. Otherwise, the dumber the movie, the better. I once cried watching Hanna Montana The Movie

Always in carry-on: A good book.

Concierge or DIY? Depends how rich I am that month.

See it all or take it easy? Both.

Drive or be driven? Ride bikes!

Travel hero: John Steinbeck (read:Travels with Charley).

Best hotel amenity: Toss up between pay-per-view and room service. Ideally, both.

I dream about my meal at Primo in Rockland, Maine, and anything I've eaten in Tuscany.

Everywhere I go, I check out the flea markets. I also always drive around looking at real estate. I'm obsessed with houses and I like to fantasize about all my future vacation homes. 

When I arrive in a new place, I learn the lay of the land by asking the locals.  

I always bring home artisanal products like local olive oils and special jams.

If I never return to Paris, it'll be too soon because the service blows goats. 

I travel for the stories I'll tell my kids. And to find my future retirement town. No way I'm growing old in LA.
