Sparks’ designs for Danier are classic, functional, and downright attractive-looking. “We started with a nostalgic idea of travel and how people once boarded airplanes and train cars with a wardrobe of carryalls, duffle bags and cases,” says the designer. “Then, we updated that mix to include iPad cases and backpacks filled with extra pockets and compartments for contemporary travelers who expect the functionality of five bags in one.”
The results are highly covetable. In fact, I’m disappointed that the collection won’t be available in time for the holidays; a swanky new briefcase would’ve been a perfect Christmas gift for the Mister. Or me, for that matter. Because if the men thought they wouldn’t have to share this collection with the women, think again.
