Beyond the Bale : September 2019
The versatility of the Rowena Swing dress – including the breathability, elasticity and odour resistance of Merino wool – makes this dress the perfect travel garment. Here are some snapshots of the dress being worn in diverse locations across the world. ROWENA’S TRAVELS LIMA, PERU MOROCCO JOSHUA TREE NP, USA GLACIER NP, USA PHOTO: Tom Vanderbilt PHOTO: Alisha Bube PHOTO: Aza Ziegler PHOTO: Charlotte Massey Writer Jancee Dunn packed little more than two Rowena dresses in her suitcase for a five-day family trip to the busy metropolis of Lima in Peru. She wore the dresses the entire time. “I have to say that I loved how versatile the dress was. It was swingy, so I could move in it when I was walking around on the street, but if we went to a nice restaurant or gallery, it looked crisp and chic and polished,” said Jancee, who lives in New York City. “It was so easy to throw on some accessories to change it up – different sandals, or a scarf, or hoop earrings. “It functioned nicely when I was active, too. One afternoon, we went to Huaca Huallamarca, a towering pre-Columbian pyramid made of adobe bricks situated right in the middle of Lima’s beautiful San Isidro neighborhood. I scrambled around there with my daughter – you can really move in that dress, and it’s not too short. I even wore it to the beach, while my husband and daughter surfed. “The dress was also perfect for the white, vaporous atmosphere that appears in the winter and spring in Lima – what locals call la garua. Because the dress is made of lightweight wool, it kept me warm when the mist got too chilly, and cool when it was warm.” THAILAND Alisha Bube from the Travel Channel went on an 18-day vacation to Thailand and tried her hand at minimalist packing. “How was it traveling with only a carry-on for 18 days? Actually, not that bad!” said Alisha, who lives in Knoxville, Tennessee. “I think the critical part was packing a limited wardrobe of durable clothes that were all within one colour scheme making it easy to mix-and-match. “I was looking for clothes that were cute, versatile, and wouldn’t need to be washed after one wear, so my Rowena dress qualified. “It ended up being a great choice; it transitioned well from the chilly winter morning in Nashville all the way to the warm Bangkok spring. [Bonus points: The pockets came in handy for easy access to my passport and travel documents along the way.]” OFF FARM 17
