Serena Williams knows what makes good luggage: She’s racked up air miles playing in tournaments all over the world, and a travel schedule like hers needs suitcases that can hold up. Last March, she teamed up with Away Luggage, an Instagram brand turned traveler favorite with the quality to match its aesthetics. The result? A hugely popular Away x Serena Williams collection that included both hard- and soft-shell suitcases, as well as organizational cubes, in a fierce shade of red with a camo interior.
This year, she’s at it again: Williams is launching her second collaboration with Away on January 28 — and it’s a larger collection than what she served up last year. The hardshell polycarbonate pieces, co-designed by Williams, are available in saturated shades of coral and mint as well as a robin’s-egg blue. The collection doesn’t stop at solids, though: There’s also a printed hardshell suitcase series in graphite, a version of which gets an addition of turquoise-blue handles for a kid-size carry-on.
In addition to luggage, there are also handy totes and sling bags to keep everything organized while traveling, not to mention a toiletry case, packing cubes and even a pet carrier for your four-legged traveling companion. Read on for more details on the line below:
Away x Serena Williams The Expandable Packing Cubes ($55; awaytravel.com)
Packing cubes are a lifesaver when you’re packing for long trips, and you might as well color-coordinate with your luggage — or brighten it up even more with a complementary shade — while this collection is out.

One for the kids, this carry-on takes the cool graphite pattern of adult-size luggage and gives it a pop with a splash of turquoise. Coordinate it with grown-ups’ printed or turquoise suitcases for (finally!) an easy spot on the baggage carousel.

You get the best of all words with this carry-on: the knowledge that you’ll fit within most airlines’ carry-on restrictions when it’s safe to travel again, a bright pop of color courtesy of Serena and the durable hard shell and brilliantly organized interior Away is known for.
Away x Serena Williams The Large Classic Polycarbonate Suitcases ($295; awaytravel.com)
