lexdray-2014-fall-collection-2

Ive been a massive fan of Lexdray for a while and my Boulder Backpack has been permanent fixture on my back for a number of years now. Lexdray updated their robust luggage collection once again for the 2014 winter season. Included in the lineup are three all-new styles, namely the hiking-inspired Mont Blanc backpack, the compact yet functional San Diego pack, and the roomy Beijing duffle for weekend trips. Along with the Ibiza Pack with its staggering array of compartments, the styles have been rendered in a new olive colorway and kitted out with custom heather grey nylon linings. The offerings are, of course, weather-resistant, utilizing premium materials such as ballistic nylon, shock-absorbing fleece and military-grade hardware to protect your essentials. A travel tray completes the selection to help you organize miscellaneous items. Available only in limited runs.lexdray-2014-fall-collection-1 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-4 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-6 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-7 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-9 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-10 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-11

I travel a lot with my job, all that time in airports make you want anything that will make life on the road slightly easier. One thing I own and love is Bellroy’s passport sleeve.

Filson Duffle Bag

When you’re traveling — whether it be in the wilderness or the far more dangerous airport concourse — it’s nice to have several ways to get to your stuff. The Filson Duffle Backpack gives you exactly that. Built from rugged Cordura nylon for resistance to both water and abrasions, this versatile bag offers a drawstring top and a zippered front to give you ways to get to the main compartment, an integrated rain cover to keep things dry, dependable RIRI zippers, and removable shoulder straps that let you transition from backpack to regular bag.

Maison Martin Margiela x Globe-Trotter 30″ Travel Suitcase

maison-martin-margiela-x-globe-trotter-00One of Britain’s best when it comes to luggage, Globe-Trotter, comes together with Maison Martin Margiela to create a unique, special edition 30″ Travel Suitcase. Coming with an already weathered and worn look fitting of a piece that has seen more miles than even Tom Stuker (look this man up!), the suitcase features a light grey leather exterior with abrasions and black skuff marks. Looking in quite pristine shape, however, are the tan leather straps, handles, and corners, which not only stand out from their quality, but for their contrast against the distressed aesthetic. Look for this case to hit MMM stores beginning this March.

Moncler x RIMOWA 2013 Autumn Winter Luggage Collection

moncler-x-rimowa-2013-fallwinter-luggage-collection-1 moncler-x-rimowa-2013-fallwinter-luggage-collection-2Moncler and RIMOWA are back with a new luggage collection for Winter 2013. Again sticking with the RIMOWA Topas Stealth, this season’s collaboration offers the iconic piece of luggage in two sizes. Each suitcase features the same riffled aluminum shell with polished and reinforced corners and comes complete TSA-approved locks set into the case, a telescopic handle, four independent wheels, and a unique serial number. The interior compartment is classic Moncler, with padded nylon lining each piece and a set of matching padded nylon pieces for your toiletries, dirty laundry, and shoes. Both sizes are available now at select Moncler boutiques.

A Look inside Ace Hotel, Shoreditch

ace-hotel-london-01-630x472Back in June, Ace Hotel Group announced the launch of their first European location in London’s Shoreditch. As it nears its opening date this September, the hotel releases a couple of images of the immaculately designed interior which also shows off their conscious efforts to cater to local culture.

The design approach for the hotel focuses on partnerships with makers that use traditional UK craftsmanship. The lobby is home to a flower shop by Hattie Fox, a cafe put on by Square Mile Coffee Roasters and a full restaurant and bar run by David Waddington and Pablo Flack of Bistrotheque. If you’re still not intrigued, beds come with quilts designed by French label A.P.C. and staff uniforms were crafted in partnership with designers like John Smedley, Assembil, and Gloverall. Ace Hotel continues to provide design and experiences totally unexpected in the hospitality world. I suggest a stay if you find yourself in London. Make a reservation here.
