With a range of wheeled travel cases, duffel bags, and travel bags, this collection is bold in color, pattern and, according to Adler himself, is all around “groovy”.

“As a creative person, I find travel to be the most inspiring activity on earth. Travel to me is creativity,” said Jonathan Adler. “Our collection is full of bright colors and bold patterns. I wanted to bring irreverent luxury and glamour to every traveler in the world. My work is about serious design with a whisper of cheekiness. I’m deadly serious about design; I’m just not that serious about life.”
