Luggage Love: Gray Malin x Away
I am obviously a travel addict and I have lots of great pieces of luggage.
I gifted my husband AWAY luggage last Christmas.
He LOVES it and has gotten many of his colleagues to follow suit. I am kinda jelly too. I have borrowed his BORING black back but it is now official and I cannot resist this amazing collaboration.
AWAY partnered with photographer Gray Malin to create special edition suitcases with elevated details and high design, each featuring a custom interior printed with one of his aerial photographs.
“I wanted to pull images from my aerial photography collection shot above various beaches, ski mountains, and urban parks. In particularly, I wanted to find three very different shots with different colors but all shot from a similar perspective. Away helped narrow down the selects to three they felt would look great printed inside their luggage,” says Malin of the collection.
Coral pays tribute to the pink sand of Australia’s Bondi Beach, often lined with lazy sunbathers.
Ocean alludes to the tidal blues of the coast of Rio de Janiero.
On the other end of the spectrum, Alpine emulates the crisp white slopes of Canada’s Whistler mountain.
While they couldn’t confirm that the collection will be expanded, Jen Rubio, creative director and co-founder of Away, noted that it wasn’t easy to choose just a few. “It was definitely hard to narrow it down to just three since Gray has so many beautiful prints,” says Rubio, of the line’s current offerings. “Every color suitcase is lined with a different Gray Malin aerial photograph, each shot in a destination inspired by one of the three colors—we think there’s an option there for everyone, no matter what kind of getaway they are trying to have.”
