THE EDITOR OF LITTLE LONDON MAGAZINE, KATE FREUD ON TRAVEL, SUITCASE MUST-HAVES AND FAVOURITE SPOTS...
Where did you go on your last holiday?
We have family in the Hamptons so tend to go there, but this year we decided to try something new and took the children to Greece in May half term, which was heavenly. It is such a beautiful place, the food is delicious and the Greek people love children - anywhere you can truly relax and let your kids run wild works for me.
What are your travel must-haves?
My children are five and two now, but I still carry wet wipes wherever I go, plenty of water and endless snacks to avoid low blood sugar strops!
Dress up or dress down?
When I am working in the office I love the excuse to dress up, but day to day when I am running around with the kids I live in a uniform of Stan Smith trainers or Converse, Frame jeans and sweaters from Chinti and Parker of Hush.
What’s your favourite city and why?
A little bit of my heart will always be in New York. I remember going over the bridge from the airport and seeing the Manhattan skyline for the first time and just thinking wow! It always feels like a movie set to me, I love the energy and diversity, and of course the shopping. We try and go every year if we can.
Favourite place for date night…
My husband Jack and I always go back to the Ivy Chelsea Garden, which is a firm favourite. Give me their watermelon and duck salad, tuna carpaccio, zucchini fritti and a couple of glasses of Whispering Angel rose and I’m a very happy lady indeed.
Best spot to take kids to?
The Horniman museum in Dulwich is like a smaller version of the Natural Museum - my kids love all the animals and running around in the beautiful gardens. In the summer, they go to the courtyard at the V&A with all its water fountains, strawberries and ice cream. And our favourite escape from the city would have to be a weekend in Soho Farmhouse, total bliss!
What’s your favourite Sunuva piece?
For girls I love the pop star strappy dress and my daughter lives in her frill pants in the cupcake design. And for boys the octopus swim shorts are awesome and the crab print style are a hit with my son.
If you were stuck on a desert island who would you like to be with and why
My family, because they are my great joy in life! I couldn’t imagine being without them.
