Travel uniform with Away
If you are anything like The Rakish Gent team, you will spend half your life at an airport. Having always been fans of travelling light, certain occasions call for more luggage space and if you are having the same problem that we have had, you need to take a serious look at Away.
Built on the notion that modern day travel should be as easy and pleasurable as possible, the brand specialise in superb luggage that stands head and shoulders above competitors. Starting with a suitcase, the brand has now evolved into bags and accessories, all with unique design details, premium materials and full to the brim with functionality.
The perfect carry-on suitcase (from £225) is sized to fit in the overhead bin of most major airlines but is much more than a humble suitcase. Inside there are 2 compartments, one for clothes and the other for harder items like shoes. Made from a lightweight yet durable polycarbonate shell, it makes travelling on the Underground easy. Dirty clothes can be kept apart from your rakish grams with a water proof laundry bag, and the case even comes with an optional ejectable battery which can change your phone x5.
If a suitcase is not enough for you, opt for the fantastic Everywhere Bag. From £195 it is cleverly designed to slot into the top of your carry-on case and makes for a pretty excellent bag of its own too. Made with a water-resistant nylon that can stand up to anything it is also available in pebbled leather, and limited collections of special edition fabrics. All bags and suitcases can also be personalised so you can truly make your luggage your own.
We have had the absolute pleasure of collaborating with amazing illustrator Scott Bolestridge, who has created work for the likes of Estee Lauder and Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, and illustrated for publications including German Vogue, WWD & Seventeen.
