There’s way more in store than on Monday: We’re talking sparky suitcases, new travel bags and some travel accessory launches too (think sleek leather backpacks, duffels and a highly practical journal cover). It’s all great for gifting or for using on your own holiday travels.
The new collection is officially live as of today, so be sure you shop it before styles sell out, as this highly rated brand’s pieces are wont to do given their popularity (and the holiday season coming up). Take a peek at the collection below:
The Three Pocket Duffle (starting at $345; awaytravel.com)
This sleek duffel is made from high-shine leather and canvas for a jet-setter vibe. But there’s more to it than surface good looks: Inside is just as well organized as you’d expect from an Away bag, with a padded pocket for your up-to-15-inch laptop, a zipper pocket, slip pockets and a key clip. You can loop it over any Away Carry-On for train station treks and carry it as a personal item on planes too.
The Zip Backpack ($245; awaytravel.com)
Made with the same materials as the duffels above, this backpack is all grown up and made for looking as great in your vacation pics as the original Away carry-ons do. The clam-shell opening makes it easy to see into the main compartment, and there are genius organizational features in there too: think a water bottle pocket, discrete laptop pocket, slip tablet pocket and a hidden back zipper for your passport.
The Journal Cover ($95; awaytravel.com)
In sophisticated pebbled leather and canvas dyed in classic shades of Sand and Clove, these journal covers protect notebooks (the paper kind) up to 9 inches by 6.75 inches. This is great because you can spend once on a protective barrier for much, much cheaper notebooks, putting you and your half-written novel ahead in the long run. There’s also an exterior zip pocket and interior slip pockets to hold bits and scraps, plus an elastic pen holder so you never have to lose your flash of inspiration scrambling for your pen.
Sparkle Polycarbonate Suitcases (starting at $245 for The Carry-On; awaytravel.com)
The last drop featured two new colorways for Away’s flagship polycarbonate line, including dark green and even darker green as well as a soft rose and sand pairing. This time, though, the vibe is full-on “see ya, 2021; ring in 2022” with the addition of some sparkle to three glossy new colorways in saffron, cranberry and black. There’s no better excuse to do your (vaccinated!) return to travel with a celebration-ready new suitcase.
Like the first part of the holiday collection, these shimmery suitcases are available in each of the polycarbonate suitcase line’s range of sizes, including The Carry-On (our pick for best carry-on luggage) and The Bigger Carry-On. For longer durations, there’s The Medium checked bag and The Large checked bag, meaning there’s truly a suitcase for every trip.
