Going Abroad? Take This Luxe Luggage With You

By Kelsey Ogletree | May 17, 2018 | Lifestyle

Luggage brands roll out pastel-hued carry-ons packed with technology and ready to soar across candy-colored skies.



Sleek, smooth and taut—we’re not talking about your beach bod, but this shiny, curvy luggage by Raden, founded by Brooklyn-based Josh Udashkin (who somehow figured out how to make rollaboards sexy). Through Raden’s companion app, you can weigh your luggage, see its location and even keep track of where it’s traveled with you. A22 Carry in light purple, $295, Raden,


What’s better than four wheels? Eight multidirectional spinners that guarantee effortless gliding. CALPAK believes travel should be a party, as evidenced by collabs with designers like Joy Cho (Oh Joy!) for confetti-inspired cases. This one reminds us of a creamsicle on a hot summer day—a nice distraction from endless delays at LaGuardia. Tustin carry-on in Orange Dream, $105, CALPAK,


Started by two Warby Parker alums, Away is all about lightweight luggage that’s as attractive as it is functional. Since the brand launched three years ago, it keeps getting better, with design collabs like Gray Malin and Rashida Jones in the books. The unbreakable carry-on, weighing only seven pounds, now comes in 10 colors, but we’re partial to this elegant pale pink. The Carry-On in blush, $225, Away,


This brand from a Louis Vuitton vet is beloved by stylish New Yorkers like Snarkitecture’s Daniel Arsham and design curator Alexandra Cunningham Cameron. Further cementing its rep as a brand for cool kids, Arlo Skye partnered with design magazine Sight Unseen for the new Arlo Skye X Sight Unseen collection.
