Last night, haute couture found itself out of the fashion house and into the California hills for a Western inspired fashion show full of tents, hot air balloons, and guests sitting on woven rugs. Located at the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in Calabasas, Dior set up camp for the ultimate American West glamping experience.

Paying homage to Gone With the Wind and Little House on the Prairie, Dior’s artistic director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, chose the same hills and valleys that these iconic Western films took place at for her first cruise line. Keeping with the tributary motif, Chiuri drew inspiration from Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings for the intricate designs and patterns adorning the pieces.

We love a good fleet of design savvy vintage Airstreams and the transient lifestyle they encourage for all. So naturally, The Modern Caravan has our heart-eyed emojis going cray right now. With a handful of *gorgeous* Airstream renovations under their belt, this design duo has found their footing in the interior design scene by designing caravans for clients across America.

An amazing couple that not only travels through life and motherhood together but also joined up in business together, Kate and Ellen are the brains and designers behind The Modern Caravan. We recently lucked out and had them give us the full story behind the journey of their business. From quitting their jobs to spending eight months on the road together to falling in love and renovating their first Airstream, it’s been a wild ride to say the least. Read on for more of the story.

Located in the wine-centric region of Baja California, this Mexican glamping spot is a creative and fresh take on the typical canvas tent camp. You can spend your b-day weekend at Campera Hotel in a clear-span bubble tent in the middle of a vineyard. Just you, your best travel buddy, a real comfy bed, and about five million stars. How’s that for a bucket list worthy birthday extravaganza?

If you haven’t heard, Baja is the next hot destination for food and wine aficionados. As many of the roads are unpaved and wineries yet to be discovered by the masses, there’s serenity unlike any other wine region we’ve visited.

Road Trippin’ Has Never Been This Easy

by Alyssa Brown



Road trippin’ hasn’t been this hot since the 1970s and we’re all about the current buzz to get on the road and explore the ole U-S of A. While we do love a good overnight stay at a luxury boutique hotel when we’re on the road, we’re also pretty stoked on the vintage vibes Airstream RVs offer up. The convenience of taking a mini apartment out on the open road and being able to set up a campsite without ever touching a tent is legit.

Tinno's, a Chino-based RV rental company, has an awesome fleet of the cutest airstreams around. Whether you’re looking to take a couple weeks out on the road this spring, or want to bring along an Airstream for a party, these guys have got you covered.
