Suitcase Series

Suitcase Series: Robyn Berkley, Co-Founder Of Live The Process

Having left her job in 2013, Robyn Berkley moved to Bali for five months to train to become a yoga teacher.

It was here she realised there was a gap in the activewear market for softer, more feminine designs. Inspired by dance, movement, and architecture, Live The Process designs are sculptural elevated basics – as perfect for a spot of Pilates as for looking chic and comfortable on the plane.

Based in New York, travel is important for Robyn: “It helps me breath and re-connect to what I feel is most important. It’s almost a recalibration.”

Here, we delve into Robyn Berkley’s suitcase psyche for a dose of sartorial escapism.

What is the first trip you remember taking?

I would have to say my first trip was to St Maarten when I was in fourth grade.

What’s your most memorable trip and why?

Israel. It was the most magical place I have ever been. The history, the sites, and the experience was incomparable to anything else. 

Where or what is your escape?

My apartment in New York, or my bath tub.

What is your favourite hotel?

A hotel in Brazil in Corumbau. It’s a hidden treasure.

What is your ultimate bucket-list destination?

Egypt and New Zealand.

What’s on your travel playlist?

Cat Power, Neil Young, and Bob Marley.

What is your jet-lag recovery tip?

I used to travel a lot and had to go straight from the plane to work, so I have tried so many different things to combat jet lag. I try to not eat anything heavy on the plane and drink lots of water. I have natural flower remedies for jet lag, and also have herbal supplements that combat the time change and helps your body adjust. I also bathe with different oils and bath salts to adjust.

Who is your favourite travel companion?

I have a few girlfriends I always turn to for travel.

What is your suitcase stalwart?

Activewear: a bra top and shorts.

What is your number one packing tip?

It’s so freeing to pack a carry-on, as you can’t take much.

What is your most-treasured purchase from your travels?

A handmade headpiece from Brazil.

Where is home and what are your must-do’s for any tourists visiting?

New York is home, and there are so many things to do, as every neighbourhood has lots to offer. Uptown you have Central Park, MoMA, The Met, and The Guggenheim (I love museums) as well as The Carlye and The Mark for that luxury hotel experience. Midtown has Times Square for shows, whilst Chelsea is great for art galleries and cute restaurants. West Village has really good restaurants and good walking routes, whilst Soho has good shopping. I live in Tribeca and for me it’s a great neighbourhood: it’s the closest feeling to living in Brooklyn.

First thing that comes to your mind…

Beach or city break?


Packing: roll or fold?


Music or podcast?


In-flight book or in-flight film?


Time filler on a long-haul flight?

Reading, watching movies, and disconnecting.

Holiday tipple of choice?

Passionfruit caipirinha

Ultimate holiday treat?
