New Column: Your Summer Plans, Revealed!

Comments | | Print

(NEW YORK) As the social scene heads increasingly East, The Daily asked a few favorites to divulge summer plans and habits. Our first subjects in an ongoing Monday series: Jason Wu and Roopal Patel.

So, Jason. What is your...
Vacation destination?
Ibiza or the South of France.
Weekend plan?
I stay in the city and host host poker nights at my apartment!
Current obsession?
I’ve been buying a lot of books. I go to the Strand every weekend.
Pennysaving technique?
I’m not dining out alot. And as a young designer, I’m used to traveling on a budget…but I also have a lot of points on my American Express card.
Bare necessities?
A spa trip once a month.
Guilty pleasure?
Macaroons from Laduree.
Summer uniform?
A button-down, shorts, and car shoes.
Seasonal eats?
Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia ice cream.
Seasonal icon?
Anyone with a great tan.
Swimsuit prep plan?
I am going back to a trainer; I’m afraid I haven’t been very disciplined going to the gym on my own. I also started the Blue Print Cleanse.

OK, Roopal. Tell us:
Vacation destination?
Palm Springs, my cousin’s wedding in London in June, and I am still figuring out where to go in Europe after the wedding.
Weekend plan?
My parents home in Muttontown, Long Island, and their place in the Hamptons.
Pennysaving technique?
I am taking more weekend getaway trips domestically, and planning one big summer trip! And I’m skipping the taxi cabs to and from work. The subway is the best place for trendwatching, especially at 6 p.m. down at Union Square when all the kids ride the subway.
Current obsessions?
Shoes. My last two purchases were Balmain leopard-print sandals and a YSL lace-up gladiator wedge. Also looking at items for the house--more functional items like containers and a new garbage can.
Bare necessities?
Kiehl’s creme des corps, Jo Malone Grapefruit cologne, and lip balm.
Guilty pleasure?
Shutting off my Blackberry on Friday and not looking at it again until Monday morning—and finishing a book cover to cover to on the weekend.
Summer uniform?
Great, easy dresses for the summer. Jumpsuits for evening with strappy heels and silver cuffs. White dresses, white jeans, and white t-shirts paired with turquoise and coral jewelry.
Seasonal eats?
Watermelon, Lobster, hamburgers, and sweet corn.
Seasonal icon?
Lauren Hutton.
Swimsuit prep plan?
Work out at the gym twice a week, Blue Print cleanse for a great pre-summer detox.
