Rebecca Minkoff is a designer famous for adopting the latest fashion technology. A pioneer of fashionable tech accessories, Rebecca Minkoff brought us the fringe crossbody bag that could charge your phone on the go. An industry leader in accessible luxury handbags, accessories, footwear and apparel, her latest tech offering is a #AlwaysOn travel tech luggage collection, designed to give you a “seamlessly connected travel experience”.
When Fashion Tech Met Travel Tech
Available for pre-order as of the 1st November 2017, the lightweight smart cases brag a polycarbonate hard-shell exterior and smooth-glide wheels that spin in all 360 degrees. Sold with a lifetime warranty, the connected luggage has a built-in 10,050mAh power bank that will not only charge your smartphone (up to 4x) it will also give you the option to charge multiple USB-C and USB enabled devices simultaneously by way of the Rapid Charging power integration.
Compatible with the Rebecca Minkoff Travel Bluetooth Smart App, you will be able to receive notifications about your power bank power levels on your high-tech pulley. Important security functions on the travel tech gadget include a TSA-approved luggage lock and the ability to trigger the “Find Me” alarm (via the app) that will help you locate your luggage.
Designed to be an extension of your style, you can personalise your carry-on roller bag with stickers that are included with your purchase. They are cityscapes, emojis, and individual puffy letters. Personally, we are drawn towards the monogram leather luggage tags that come with a lightning cable. Although the collection is intended for “the always-connected girl on the go,” I think that men can also enjoy the benefits of this handsome matt black suitcase. Other colour options are expected to come out in February 2018.
