Just in time to civilize your holiday travels, Paravel has officially launched, bringing luxury carry-ons, collapsable suitcases, and other assorted weekend essentials to the rollerboard-weary masses. Founded by Indré Rockefeller and Andy Krantz, former colleagues at Delpozo, the direct-to-consumer brand has managed to make durable, lightweight, and relentlessly chic luggage and accessories at accessible prices.
(A memory foam packing pouch will set you back $45, and the most expensive item is a $345 duffel). Rockefeller and Krantz, inveterate travelers themselves, spent nearly a year developing their signature waterproof coated canvas, which is offered in red, green, navy, and camel and trimmed with coordinating leather. Many pieces are made in Italy, and from the brand’s signature duffle to an elegant set of packing pouches, the overall effect is destined to be the best-dressed bag on the Montauk-bound LIRR or the puddle-jumper to Nantucket, Antigua, Cannes, et cetera.
