It warms the cockles of my cold little blogger heart to see contemporary brands expanding into luggage in creative ways. First came the Lulu Guinness suitcases covered with her signature molded lips, and now we have the Rebecca Minkoff Skull Suitcase. I’d like one of each, please.
I’m not much of a crafty girl, but the trompe l’oeil knitted look of the pattern (indeed, other bags in this collection are actually made out of a woven material) provides just enough kitsch to balance out the tough look of a skull and crossbones. Instead of weaving, the bag is made of durable coated canvas that might actually survive a trip through the airport ringer.
Even thinking about the airport makes me cringe. People claim that air travel used to be a glamourous journey, but now, it’s little more than a human cattle-call where you might get groped. At least with a cute carry-on, the entire process can be a little more fashionable, if not any more pleasant. Also, I doubt anyone at baggage claim would mess with the girl pulling skull luggage off of the conveyor belt. Buy through ShopBop for $595.
