Rashida Jones’ Luggage for Away Is Inspired By Stockholm
Just because summer is coming to a close doesn’t mean your travel plans have to come to an end anytime soon. In fact, you’ll probably want to book a trip asap just so you have an excuse to make one of these pieces from Rashida Jones’ new Away capsule collection your own. The Parks and Rec star has partnered with “it” luggage maker Away for an uber stylish new collection that features four sizes of carry-ons, a tote, and organizational packing cubes.
Away’s Editions are capsule collections based on the travels and experiences of known jet setters. Jones’ collection boasts Away’s signature design-forward sensibility and is inspired by her travels to Stockholm, Sweden. Per Jones’ Instagram, each piece is influenced by the functional femininity of Scandinavian design. Why Stockholm? For Jones’ the city is her creative center and style capital. It’s her go-to destination whenever she’s in search of fresh ideas and context, notes the Away website.
Want some Stockholm travel tips? Jones tells Travel + Leisure that Ett Hem is her go-to hotel, and that “all the bridges you walk over connecting the [city’s] individual islands may just be my favorite part.”
The carry-ons and packing cubes are available in three beautifully muted pastel colors: “Clay” red, “Cactus” green, and “Violet” purple. Carry-ons start at $225 while cubes are $45. As is standard with all of Away’s rolling luggage, each one of Jones’ rollers features a built-in charging dock, scratch-resistant exteriors, and TSA-approved combination locks. The Stockholm Tote, which is available in black and is designed personally by Jones, can be had for $95. Made of vegan leather, this handy totes fits all your plane-to-pavement essentials, including an interior laptop sleeve and removable zippered pouch for your phone.
A portion of all proceeds for the limited collection goes to the International Rescue Committee.
