The Creative Director of Pronovias Talks Honeymooning: The Designer Reveals the Most Romantic Place in the World (According to Him!)
What began as a family-owned business in Barcelona in 1922 now has 129 stories worldwide-and since 2013, Pronovias creative director Hervé Moreau has been hard at work designing beautiful gowns for brides around the globe. Last October, the brand even staged its first-ever U.S. show during New York Fashion Week. (Take a peek at the collection here.) Moreau-who spent 15 years at Jean-Louis Scherrer and another three at the haute couture Matsu Fashion House from Japan before joining Pronovias-took time out to reveal a few of this top travel tips, including his tendency to leave almost everything up to chance when exploring a new city.
AISLE OR WINDOW?
Aisle. I don't like to bother people if I have to get out of my seat.
CHECK OR CARRY-ON?
Carry-on! Without doubt, I prefer to have my things as close as I can in case I need anything during the flight. And I don't like to waste time going to pick it up. I hate having to wait.
WHAT ELECTRONICS OR GADGETS DO YOU ALWAYS PACK AND WHY?
I always pack my Philips electric razor-I like my face to look clean and maintained! I also pack an eye-mask in my hand luggage because it helps me sleep better.
ANY TIPS FOR PACKING CLOTHES?
I always pack clothes first in one side, and then the rest in the other. I'm super organized, and have a space for every specific item-all underwear has to go together, all shirts, and all trousers and jackets.
WHAT IS THE MOST ROMANTIC DESTINATION YOU'VE VISITED?
Venezia-and Italy in general. I think it's a very romantic place. I connected so well with the city and the people there.
MOST ROMANTIC HOTEL?
MOST ROMANTIC MEAL?
If a meal goes with French Champagne Rosé, it's always romantic!
HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR A LONG FLIGHT?
I don't do anything special since I usually fall asleep so quickly. I just wake up to eat what they give me at the airplane-vegetarian food, of course.
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO AIRPORT UNIFORM?
A comfortable outfit with Dolce & Gabbana jeans and cute pair of boots.
WHAT ARE YOUR TIPS FOR PLANNING A ONCE IN A LIFETIME TRIP?
The best trips are always improvised! I just book the flight and the hotel, and the rest solves itself. I like to ask people on the street. It's more exciting, and I always have great stories to take home with me.
WHAT CAMERA DO YOU RECOMMEND?
I use my iPhone 6. It's always in my pocket and I can capture every moment and look at them whenever I want.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TRAVEL APPS?
The Air France app.
WHAT ARE YOUR IN-FLIGHT BEAUTY TIPS?
I can't travel without my Clarins face cream. They're crucial for me to feel good. I always apply a little bit before the flight, during it (if it's long), and after it.
HOW DO YOU LOOK REFRESHED AFTER A LONG FLIGHT?
I always take a shower when I arrive at the hotel.
HOW DO YOU FIGHT JET LAG?
With melatonin, a natural tablet that helps me fall asleep faster and better after a long trip.
WHERE ARE YOU GOING NEXT?
To Nice. I've been there many times and I love it.
