FAR AND AWAY: Those who ever wondered about Tommy Hilfiger’s favorite eatery in the world (Bukhara in New Delhi), Diane von Furstenberg’s airline of choice (Air France) or Simon Spurr’s go-to hotel (The Dylan in Amsterdam) should look no further than the latest Council of Fashion Designers of America’s book by Assouline. “American Fashion Travel: Designers of the Go” gives readers an insider view into the travel preferences of CFDA members, and from Donna Karan to Elie Tahari and Francisco Costa, the designers have supplied travel photos and other mementos to illustrate their lists. The foreword of the $45 book, which hits stores May 15, is written by von Furstenberg, which makes sense, considering that she is one of the more globe-trotting American designers. The CFDA president has a good piece of advice for those who can only dream about far-flung destinations. “Reading is another way to travel, to discover,” she said in the foreword. “Within a book’s pages is the opportunity to take a trip, one that can be further informed by maps.” It seems like she already has a book in mind that fits the bill.
