This Cool Girl Luggage Brand Is About to Be Everywhere
Luggage as a fashion statement has fully become a thing. Agree or disagree, the travel essential isn’t just a glorified box for your goods anymore. It can be as stylish of an accessory as any other part of your ensemble. Taking a cue from the minimal, practical and much sought after Away Luggage comes another luggage launch you should care about: Paravel.
While Paravel doesn’t come with a USB charging port like Away does, it makes up for what it lacks in tech convenience with endless style points. Consider Paravel the Everlane of the luggage industry. The ultra-clean designs and luxurious materials should come in a price point fit only for those first class flyers. But because they’ve gone for a direct-to-consumer approach, they’re able to sell the pieces with a reasonable price tag attached.
The brand just launched this week with a collection of 10 stunning products. A few standouts include: an ultra-chic carry-on, a fully collapsible overnight bag, a trio of packing cubes, a crossbody bag for when you’re out adventuring and leaving your bigger pieces back at the Airbnb and a memory pouch for your fragile possessions.
All the pieces are all comprised of a cotton canvas exterior and Italian leather accents. In a note about the materials, the founders Indre Rockefeller and Andy Krantz write, “Cotton canvas served generations of explorers as sailcloth and tents. Modern life has different needs — more spills, less sailing — so we reinvented this material to outperform the everyday.” They’ve updated the material to be waterproof, spill-proof and, subsequently, travelproof.
All the pieces come in four color options: red, blue, green and a golden yellow. Slowly invest in a few pieces that are all the same color for a monochromatic look, or seriously spice up your next trip across the globe with a rainbow-assorted collection of travel accessories. It’s a luggage line you can customize to suit your mood.
The most expensive piece in the line is “The Grand Tour” weekender, coming in at $345. The cheapest, at $45. It’s a hefty sum, but remember, luggage is one of those investment sort of pieces. It should last a lifetime. Also, Christmas is just around the corner… just sayin’. Head to Paravel’s site to shop the pieces now or add them to your not-so-secret holiday wish list on Pinterest.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
