Rebecca Minkoff is constantly on the go — and that's not just because she's based in the City That Never Sleeps. The New York designer frequently pops in and out of her international boutiques, hits up global hotspots like Milan and Hong Kong, and — when she can — steals some family vacation time.
This holiday season, the designer told Most Wanted that she's looking forward to a little R&R in Harbour Island. "We’ve gone for the past few years and its amazing!" she shared. "It’s such a charming island, so remote. It’s the best way to disconnect." Disconnecting is a rare treat for Minkoff, whose other frequent trips blend city exploration with research and plenty of good, old-fashioned work.
That's why Minkoff had both the leisure traveler and the road warrior in mind when she designed her new travel collection. Comprising everything from technology-equipped carry-on luggage to cute emoji stickers, the line has something for every travel fanatic (and tech geek!) on your list.
Take a look at the pieces Minkoff recommends for holiday gifting, below. And, don't hesitate to nab some of these pieces for yourself as you shop. With the exception of Beyoncé, perhaps, we could all use some help in staying stylish through airport delays.
So Connected Luggage 22
This may be the most high-tech piece of luggage we've ever seen. "The So Connected 22-inch carry-on is a must-have," notes Minkoff, who's constantly in touch with her team and family while on the road. "Not only can you charge all of your devices, but it connects via Bluetooth technology, so you can track your bag using the Rebecca Minkoff Always On app."
Travel Emoji Sticker Pack
"I’m always looking for creative ways to make my all-black luggage stand out when it comes through baggage claim," says Minkoff. "Customization sticker packets with emojis and my initials is the best way!"
Travel Letter Stickers
Minkoff grabs for the R and M travel stickers — and we have a hunch Rihanna herself would go for the R. But, the line has colorful letters in A through Z, and they're only $5 apiece.
The collection also has stickers to represent various cities — you can snatch them up for your favorite spots, or use them as bucket list reminders. For a recent trip to Chicago to visit her new flagship store, Minkoff put this cute sticker on her luggage.
Travel Wristlet Pouch
"The Travel Pouch is really my coveted go-to when I travel," Minkoff tells Most Wanted. "It has an exterior strap that loops over the luggage handle so it sits nicely while you walk — or run! — through the terminal. It’s perfect for on-the-go, and has lots of card slots so everything is all in one place."
