If you’ve spent any time on Instagram or found yourself stuck on travel TikTok, you’ve likely seen influencers, celebrities and casual shoppers alike fawning over one go-to suitcase from Away. Over the past few years, Away has brought the travel industry into the future with the popularization of luggage that is somehow visually pleasing, durable and practical. Not to mention those built-in USB charging ports! Their next big move? A long-awaited designer collaboration.
The traveler’s beloved suitcase is forging a new path with a just-launched designer collaboration series spotlighting diverse fashion creators with unique voices and backgrounds. The inaugural series kicks off with NY-based designers Sandy Liang, Tia Adeola and Ji Won Choi, who were tasked with reimagining Away’s three core styles with their own unique perspectives and design aesthetic.
As a practice, I tend to avoid anything too recognizable unless it’s a suitcase. Traveling is hard enough. I can’t and won’t strain my eyes searching for the same black suitcase everyone else is waiting for at the baggage claim! Instead, I tend to opt for something that stands out.
Fresh off her recent Target collaboration, Sandy Liang’s contribution to the drop combines bright, summery florals with dark and moody backgrounds for a design that seamlessly blends summer and fall while incorporating Liang’s familiar flower imagery. Perfect for year-round trips! Tia Adeola’s pieces take inspiration from her F/W 21 collection with feminine themes of pastel pinks and yellows in a tweed fabric while Ji Won Choi stays on brand, incorporating vibrant blues recently seen in her S/S 21 collection. All of Choi’s pieces for the range are uniquely made with 100 percent recycled nylon.
Below, take a look at some of the pieces we have our eye on, or shop the whole collection now on the Away site.
