How To Be A Carry-On Only Jet Setter

We've known the stylish Ms. Aya Kanai from her gigs at Nylon and Teen Vogue. And, now as the fashion director of Cosmopolitan, she's a rather big deal.
Seeing her in New York, Paris, Milan, and beyond, we've wondered how she always brings her unique blend of punk and formality wherever she goes. Like, honestly, how many bags of clothes does one need to look so perfectly on point all the time? Surprisingly, the answer is one. Kanai not only packs light and shows up stylish as all get-out, but she also hits the plane with only her carry-on in tow. Impressive, yes?
For a peek into how she manages it all, we went over to Kanai's place to talk travel tips, what she never leaves home without, and, yeah, to pack one stylish bag. Click through to see the results, and keep your eyes open for a few extra pointers from our friends at Hyatt.
