My beach essentials: Carolyn Jang

The Nylora founder’s must-haves include a lavender face mist.

As the founder and creative designer of activewear brand Nylora, Carolyn Jang’s schedule doesn’t allow for many days off. The fashion industry veteran is no stranger to a hectic lifestyle; before starting Nylora, which launches in The Shop at Equinox this month, she worked at contemporary fashion houses in New York, Los Angeles, and Seoul. However, she still finds times to indulge her penchant for personal travel. “I love to treat myself to a nice resort trip after busy seasons,” she says. “This year I’m looking forward to going to Sri Panwa Phuket in Thailand.”

Here, Jang shares some of the beach necessities she’ll pack.
