The Tech Geek’s Guide To Packing For A Holiday

For all you bookish types out there, there’s now no reason to neglect your sartorial codes. Thanks to the likes of Alessandro Michele rolling out an eccentric librarian aesthetic at Gucci, plus Demna Gvasalia debuting at Balenciaga with a legion of check suits that are finessed to couture-like quality, geek chic is now constantly being reinvented.

So what to pack on a holiday? Even if you choose to stick with a uniform a la Mark Zuckerberg, there are still plenty of elevated pieces to help you look like you’re always on top of the game. A perennial favourite, the hoodie is now made super cool with clever tailoring or techno fabrics. Even nerdy glasses now come studded with crystals for extra bling, or given futuristic vibes with sleek metallic finishing.
