Are Hat Boxes the New Weekender Bag?
Circle bags have been a fixture on the style scene for a while, but the trend is now starting to make its way back towards its retro origins. The hat box, which in the the golden era of Hollywood glamour kept hats protected during travel, has been reinvented in 2019 as a stylish and unique piece of luggage. Here are four takes on the hat box that will make you want to replace your weekender bag before your next trip.
1. Steamline Luggage The Editor Large Hat Box ($320): The Editor series from Steamline Luggage offers three sizes of hat boxes, along with other vintage-inspired luggage pieces. The ivory linen fabric set against sea green detailing is elegant and has us itching to book a safari vacation ASAP.
2. Calpak Baye Large Hat Box ($125): Calpak has been wowing us with its collabs with Oh Joy! and Jen Atkin, but the Baye line of hat boxes, which offer the brand’s same lightweight durability, is our favorite.
3. Freya Poppy Travel Hat Box ($890): Freya was founded by two friends who shared a love for travel, adventure, and hats and wanted to create luxury accessories for the fashionable nomad. The Poppy Travel Hat Box is handcrafted from 100 percent Italian leather and can fit in an overhead compartment or under your seat.
4. Ookonn Printed Leather-Trimmed Hardshell Suitcase ($370): We can never pass on a good travel pun. This black carbonate suitcase from Ookonn is undoubtedly stunning from the outside, but there are a few treats on the inside too. Open it to reveal compartments with ‘I’m Messy’, ‘I’m Clean’, and ‘I’m Dirty’ dividers to help organize your things.
