Daydreaming back to the long-lost days when airplane travel was a thing of glamour in the sky, when stewardesses – ahem, flight attendants – were fly girls who dressed to the nines, Tina and I came up with the concept for our everyday tote. Looks like we were onto something! We designed this last year; with a television show of the same premise premiering this season, who knew we weren’t the only ones with Pan-Am on the mind?
Looking to the mod sleekness of retro flight bags, the Tote injects one of my all-time favorite color combinations into a bold and streamlined daily style. Bright cobalt blue stands out against black and charcoal (a neutral pairing that qualifies as colorblocking with a light touch) for that pop of color every big bag needs. Double external pockets, as well as extra pockets on the inside, make for the organization we crave and need; and the square shape will hold all your all-day essentials and then some. At Net-a-Porter for $495.
Pair with: Every globetrotting jetsetter needs a pair of shades to hide beneath, for early mornings after long nights. Tierry Lasry’s Sexxxy D-frame sunglasses, an acetate and metal blend in royal blue, gold, and black will pick up on the straps of the bag, On Net-a-Porter for $425.
