Steven Alan’s take on the perfect travel bag

November 17, 2009 |  5:56 pm

Getting frustrated with schlepping heavy and lopsided luggage through the airport terminal, when all you really want is to look effortlessly chic while traveling just like Angelina Jolie?  (Though come to think of it, I’ve never actually seen her toting around any cumbersome bags.)

Cool, bi-coastal retailer Steven Alan went to Australia to get inspired by the country and the travel experience.  Now he’s in the process of making the perfect bag, based on places he went while Down Under, making sure it’s got all the compartments, straps and reinforced seams he thought would make packing and lugging much easier, not to mention stylish.

He’s still in the sketching and developing phase and welcomes your feedback as to what you’d like to see appear on a perfect bag.  Visit his blog to check out the bag and comment.

The bag is set to hit Steven Alan stores and this January.
