Describe the day in the life of Hermione Underwood
It depends where in the world I am. I usually wake up fairly early and read emails over coffee and breakfast, primarily to catch up on the Australian day. Home is currently London and an average day means, client meetings, shooting and working away in Notting Hill. When travelling, it means a mixture of work and exploring. As long as I have my laptop, I can work from anywhere!
What made you decide to launch your blog hermioneolivia.com?
I was constantly being asked questions about recent travels and so I decided to solve the problem by putting everything in one place online, hence hermioneolivia.com was born. It has since expanded to include snippets of my personal style, health and new life living in Europe.
What designers are you currently inspired by?
Gucci has had the greatest comeback of all time. I’m still a huge advocate for Australian designer’s and I love Alice McCall, Josh Goot and Bassike. I’m also a huge fan of the new British label KALITA, and The Outnet’s label Iris and Ink.
Being a frequent traveller where is your all time favourite travel destination?
Home will always be my favourite destination, Sydney. Otherwise, I visit Saint Tropez and Capri every year and recently had the fortune of spending time in The Maldives and on safari in Africa which were both extraordinarily beautiful.
Where to next?
I’m currently on a flight from Bermuda to New York City. The next few months will mean a lot of time in Australia, Asia and Europe.
What five items could you not live without?
Only one: my passport.
