Packing a suitcase is an effective, though not always pain-free, exercise in editing. Only your most versatile closet M.V.P.s get to come along for the ride, and they’ve got to have a forgiving enough constitution to survive hours upon hours of transit. What you need is a few effortless ensembles that still feel chic, artful, and put-together—and Maria Cornejo is your go-to designer.

Her newest capsule collection for Zero + Maria Cornejo was designed with the traveler in mind.

maria cornejo quoteIt’s made up of pieces that are easily mixed and matched—slouchy printed pants, a soft-yet-structured cocoon coat, flowing silk tunics—that also rank high on the comfort scale. (That’s what happens when you use luxurious fabrics like silk charmeuse.) Many of these winners are part of Maria’s personal go-to travel wardrobe.

The real advantage of this tightly edited collection, according to the designer, is that it makes packing a snap. “In our hectic world, the true luxury is time,” says Maria. “It’s about being in the moment and creating memories with those closest to you.”

We’ll leave you with those words of wisdom and wish you speedy, successful packing for all your holiday travels.
