If you’re looking to explore new terrain, consider following in Caroline Issa’s beautifully soled footsteps and add Iran to your travel itinerary. The fashion director of Tank magazine and editor-in-chief of Because magazine (who launched a Nordstrom collection) recently took to her Instagram account to document her trip to the bustling capital of Tehran and the city of Isfahan, renowned for its Persian-Islamic architecture. For the interior obsessed, finely decorated mosques, opulent interiors—cue the floor-to-ceiling mirrored rooms at Golestan Palace—and arabesque building facades make this country an architect’s playground. Beauty lurks at every corner, down to the smallest details with trees’ trunks even decorated with colorful embroidery. Meanwhile, museums serve to take you back in time to visit the country’s turbulent dynasties. Topping the list of must-sees is the National Jewelry Treasury for its mind-blowing display of crown jewels—marked as the largest collection in the world. Need more convincing? Flick through the inspired travel photos from Caroline Issa’s Iran tour, and start packing.
