W ith travel once again a staple of modern life, Louis Vuitton has updated its Rolling Luggage line with the Pégase wheeled suitcase. Vuitton — whose luggage innovations at the turn of the 20th century would serve as foundations for the house — has re-enlisted marquee designer Marc Newson to update the collection. The result is a case built for modern lives. Extra-slim tube handles allow for additional space within, while the exterior sports a streamlined look and newly designed metallic zip hardware. With TSA-compliant sizes, new organization compartments to hold computers and tablets, and four finishes (Monogram, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, and Taiga Leather), the new bag is the perfect travel companion for your next trip for business or pleasure. Ready, Set, Travel F irst launched in December 2019, Prada's Timecapsule collection has been a creative outlet to keep both the house and its admirers on their toes. Featuring limited- edition works made available the first Thursday of every month, the project has entered a new phase of its relatively short existence. August 4 marked the third edition of the latest Timecapsule NFT Collection. Following sold-out collaborations with artist Cassius Hirst (son of Damien), the third launch continues with the #32 shirt, a Frankenstein-inspired print created by artist Jeanne Detallante with an archival 1950s-era flower-motif silk Lurex brocade and a silk lampas from the house's 1920s archives. We're big fans of Prada, from its informed position on environmental issues to its stance on collaborations (less is more). The Timecapsule series is an approachable way to see and purchase unique works, while the foray into NFTs allows the house to engage with fans in new ways, via the digital realm. Future Forward N eed something thoughtful, expertly crafted, and beautiful for the significant other in your life? Not your spouse or kids … Hermès has crafted these beauties for man's best friend. Is it fair that you dine on fine china while your pup eats from a plain bowl on the floor? We think not. Hermès' expertly crafted oak-and-steel dog bowl ($1,200) evens the field. Perhaps the thought of travel inspires you both. There are pet carryalls for that, both water resistant and breathable — your dog will appreciate this — when wanderlust strikes ($2,125 to $2,750). From exquisitely made baskets and blankets to leather collars and leashes, if you're looking for a little pick-me-up for that someone special, you can probably find it in Hermès collection pour les chiens.
