Celebrity Designers Get the Travel Jones
Have you noticed that more and more designers are getting into the travel game? A few examples: The Vera Wang Suite at the Halekulani in Waikiki; Diane Von Furstenberg's luggage; Kathy Griffin's D-List suite at the Hotel Triton; Gwen Stefani's uniforms for W hotels; and Francis Ford Coppola's Blancaneaux Lodge in Belize. Everyone wants a piece of the pie.
The latest travel accessory comes courtesy of Alexander McQueen's Boarding Bag for Samsonite. I've been allowed to look at one here at the office (but no touching), and let me tell you, it's the coolest thing your lap top will ever travel in. It's gorgeous, roomy, lined with a zebra pattern, and so unique that you won't have to worry about anyone accidentally walking away with your carry-on again.
Celebs who walked the red carpet of our Readers' Choice Awards gala went home with one of these bags filled to the brim with awesome airplane-sized goodies: mini Burt's Bees products, Oakley's sunglasses, black chocolate, Kinerase cream, Bee MD throat drops, and many others. Lucky ducks. But if you can't swing McQueen's $615 price tag (and who can these days?), Samsonite has plenty of wallet-friendly options. Any of them will make your carry-on the envy of the cockpit.
