It seems like it would go hand-in-hand; a hotel designs its own line of luggage to keep their guests looking flash every step of the way before they head to reception and collect their room keys. Well, St. Regis Hotels has done just that with a little fashion help from their favorite go-to designer, Jason Wu.
This is a first for the Taiwanese-born fashionista and also for Starwood's premium hotel brand. The bag is both sophisticated and timeless while maintaining Wu's fashion-forward design. The trim will feature both the designer's label and hotel's logo embossed in black leather. The cost for this tastemaker's tote? $1,995.
The bag, along with an entire e-store of gift ideas for road warriors, will be available early December. Seems like a coincidence, but this could make holiday shopping a lot easier this year.
Back in the fall of 2009, designer Jason Wu showed his Spring/Summer collection at the St. Regis New York, and on each chair, he placed a box of macaroons that had been made downstairs at Alain Ducasse's restaurant Adour. A few weeks later, Wu picked the hotel to celebrate his twenty-seventh birthday. Clearly, there's some chemistry here.
