Movers & Shakers: Indré Rockefeller
July 13, 2018
Meet Indré Rockefeller, the co-founder and creative director of Paravel. This chic luggage brand (made in Italy with waterproof cotton canvas and Italian leather) is a must-have for your next trip. We caught up with Indré outside The Mark Hotel in NYC to talk all things travel!
WHERE DO YOU LOOK FOR INSPIRATION?
My first source of inspiration for Paravel was my parents’ collection of National Geographic magazines from the 80s that I have “borrowed” indefinitely.
Take risks, make mistakes, learn from them then go take some more risks.
BEST CAREER ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED?
I carry Paravel’s Week(ender) as my carry-on bag and always throw in a pair of warm socks and at least one of our Zip-top pouches, which usually has an eye mask, a phone charger, and Natura Bisse’s SOS rescue cream inside.
THREE THINGS ALWAYS IN YOUR CARRY-ON BAG?
Jackson Hole, Wyoming because of the crisp air, dramatic sunsets, and cowboy boots everywhere.
YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER TRAVEL DESTINATION:
As tempting as a nap sounds, take a walk when you arrive, even if it’s just around the block.
#1 TIP FOR BEATING JET LAG:
WHAT ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?Travel – everything about it. From the luggage I pack, to the people I meet, to the little side street I stumble upon in a strange city.
DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE IN FIVE WORDS:
I’ll give you two: Mood dependent.
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL CONFIDENT?
A great night’s sleep.
GUILTY PLEASURE:Very, very dark chocolate. I’ll tell you that I can go up to 90% but I won’t tell you how much I’ll eat in one sitting.
CAMO OR LEOPARD?
I love prints but unless these are listed as a dress code, pass. I prefer a floral over a feline.
RED LIP OR SMOKY EYE?
A lip + concealer. I find both have superpowers when I’m in a pinch.
UPTOWN OR DOWNTOWN?Uptown.
