Considering how long I’ve been following Lisa Marie’s style all over the world, it was time for us to dedicate a Style Story to her! Lisa — whose gorgeous bathing suits you’re already familiar with — is a true jet setter. She never really stays in one place, and whether she’s in New York, London, on a beach in Italy, or on a boat in Greece, her style always reaches breathtaking levels of perfection.
It seems almost unreal, but that’s just the way she is, and I love watching her. For these photos, we went to find her at her (sublime) hotel in Paris, La Réserve…
1. Describe your style in three words.
Effortless, bohemian, expensive. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to look expensive.
2. You travel so much! How do you pack?
I always pack at least two Globetrotters. I am definitely an over packer. I like to have options due to climate and occasion. You just never know…
3. Do you find your style naturally shifts when you travel to a different city?
My style remains the same but my hair does not. I would rather not brush my hair in NYC.
4. What is your favorite outfit right now?
My LMF terry cloth bath robe at home every day. I don’t like to be dressed at home. Vita Kin embroidered dresses, and skirts and dresses from The Row. My jewelry is a lot of vintage snake bracelets and rings mixed with a lot of Eddie Borgo and a Cartier juste en clou bracelet, and Aurélie Bidermann rope bracelets. I absolutely love handbags and, lately, have been wearing the new Louis Vuitton petite malle, the new J.W. Anderson Loewe suede bounce bag, M2Malletier and Olympia Le-Tan clutches for evening, and Hermès Kelly of the garden party basket in summer. Shoes are Francesco Russo, Gianvito Rossi, Céline.
5. Are there things you have been wearing forever?
High waisted jeans and ponchos.
6. Are there things you won’t wear?
A sleeveless fur vest.
7. What do you have in mind when you design your swimsuits ?
I am traveling year round and cultivate ideas along the way. When it comes time for design, I already know the direction.
8. You recently launched an active wear line, how do you fit exercise in your travels ?
I find it the most difficult thing!! Whilst in New York, I do Karen Lord pilates and I love to bike in the warm weather months, I never exercise in other cities but I swim when in the Mediterranean every day.
10. This hotel is amazing ! What do you look for in a hotel?
I love to be inspired as much as I can and always choose a hotel that will hopefully do that. I have been patiently waiting for La Reserve to open its doors. I stay at La Réserve in Ramatuelle, which is super chic, and know Paris would be the same. I prefer an intimate hotel with character and interesting design, but the most important aspect of a hotel is the experience.
11. What is your travel outfit ?
My travel outfit is now our activewear. The brushed microfiber catsuit doubles as cozy flying pajamas or the Elisa bra top and legging paired with a chic sweater from The Row.
12. What have you seen on the runway that you can’t wait to wear?
I am finding myself less interested in runway looks lately.
13. How much does fashion week inform your personal style?
Actually, not at all. My personal style is pretty much set in stone.
14. Who is your fashion muse?
I am inspired by there, here and now, and try and let my personal experiences dictate my fashion style. I have never had a fashion muse as we are all different, and what suits one person doesn’t necessarily translate to another. I am a strong believer in individuality.
