MRketNY Trade Show - Spring/Summer 2012 WISECRACKER LUGGAGE

Resting between mrkt appointments

Next up was Wisecracker luggage.  In addition to their first line they had two new collections.  Both were a collaboration with Perennials the outdoor fabric specialist also considered the Rolls Royce of outdoor textiles and furniture. Their website: is a must see whether you’re buying or just need some design inspiration.  This partnership has bloomed into a collection of luggage that is not only stylish and lightweight but the solution dyed acrylic is mildew and water resistant.  While these pieces have been dubbed En La Playa, I don’t think I’ll be taking these to Jones beach! Much better as a carry on for my flight to Sardegna. And just in case my luggage is left on the tarmac it’s nice to know these pieces are also UV resistant.  Which reminds me, you must read the Wisecracker blog Wanderings. "A blog focused on design, style and travel, never forgetting that the journey is sometimes the best part of the experience.  Behave well, travel lightly, stay under the radar screen and always carry good luggage. Just go." Say no more ragazzi, andiamo!!
