Reading time 4 minutes

We all know those people that are capable of magically opening our eyes to the more eclectic things in life: wagyu with uni, improvised Shakespeare, the refreshing alchemy of an amazing Spotify playlist. For the young or inspirable, a manic pixie dream girl changes everything. She’s unpredictable and fragile; a quantum mechanical mystery. She’s got a lovely way with words and often says the kinds of things that make you desperate to see through her kaleidoscope. Like it or not, she sets the bar for everyone else. This year, we raised the bar on gifts for the manic pixie dream girl in your life. In the words of Penny Lane from Almost Famous: “It’s all happening."

Steamline Luggage Carryon

A dream girl is always on the go. Whether it’s a window seat to Morocco or a trip to the desert to recharge malachite in the full moonlight; she makes moves. This leather carry-on is so chic, it’s the sort of frank need that seasoned travelers can’t live without. Occasionally life affords the dolce far niente to ask the sorts of questions that go largely unexamined: where did leather luggage go? This line of carry-ons and stowaways has all the answers.
