Ever After: Chic Carry-On Bags
Even though you’ll have to wait until the plane lands to show off your style savvy honeymoon wardrobe, you can still give them a sneak peek while your seat belt is fastened. These chic carry-on bags are big enough to pack all you need on-the-go (keeping regulations in mind) and get you through the flight fashionably.
The buttery leather exterior of the Reece satchel features three front zip pockets and a front flap pocket for all your must-haves (hello, passport). The top snap flap pouch has a two-way zip-around closure, so turbulence won’t mean your stuff goes flying. There’s even a whistle hanging from the side, in case you need to get your spouse’s attention. ($170, available in sky blue or “Vachetta” camel at Cynthia Rowley, 164 Newbury Street)
Each one of these large cotton bags is one-of-a-kind from the Karen tribe in Thailand. They’re hand-woven and embroidered with hand-dyed cotton, then adorned with beads and shells. ($385, available at Mohr & McPherson, 460 Harrison Avenue)
The Top Zip Travel Bag from local fave David King & Co. (located, appropriately, in the Leather District) is created with soft, rich vacquetta leather tanned in natural oils. This chic duffel has a single large compartment and a front flap pocket, as well as back zippered pocket and an adjustable, removable shoulder strap. ($189, available in tan, café/dark brown, and black at The Leather Shop at Faneuil Hall, 1 Faneuil Hall Square)
The Santiago weekender is a soft reminder that vacations are for relaxing. Los Angeles-based designer Nila Prawidjaja, creator of Jesslyn Blake bags, crafts you a classic look in cotton and leather with this slouchy carry-on. It has a removable, adjustable shoulder strap and three outer and three inner pockets for keeping it all in place (perfect stashing those TSA-approved beauty items). ($158, available at Anthropologie stores)
