Emma Elwin shares one of her clothing care tip for traveling.

Blouse, Old touche. T-shirt, Filippa K. Trousers, Stella McCartney. Linen water, Washologi. Bag, Pop vintage. Knitted sweater, Gant Rugger. Trousers, Marget Howell. Shoes, Celiné. 

This is part two of the art of packing. My next tip is quite simple. If you are traveling and don’t have a washing machine at hand. Simply try to air your cloths after using them. If you have a scented spray to re-fresh clothing spray the garment after it has been aired.

Blue is sharply refracted by the eyes. This causes the lens to flatten and to push the blue image back. We perceive that blue areas are receding and smaller.
