FlyLite (Remote Wardrobe Manager)

If you’re a frequent flyer and hate lugging your luggage around, there’s a service made especially for you. FlyLite will store items you frequently travel with in your own private ‘iCloset’, where you can drag and drop items you need for your next trip into your virtual suitcase, which will then be delivered (via real suitcase) to your hotel, “fresh, clean and ready to go.” Once you’re finished and ready to move on to another city, you give them a call and they’ll arrange for your suitcase to be picked up and returned, where your items will be cleaned and stored for next time. Luggage free travel sounds good, right? Of course it does: no waiting around the baggage carousel, no standing in lines to check in, not to mention less trips to the dry cleaners…all of that sounds spectacular, which is why it’ll cost you $100 per trip.

Signat and SBL Collection

Perfect for your laptop, this special 1965 re-edition of that classic Samsonite briefcase certainly shows signs of a makeover. Thinner than the old version with a leather handle face-lift, it’s most likely more comfortable to carry around on a daily basis and has the nifty added feature of a removable laptop sleeve. A divider panel and pockets help keep your papers and necessary electronic components organized.

Mini Attache A5, 11” x 9” x 3”, $240.00, Buy it here.

Also, I couldn’t help browsing through some of the other ‘Black Label’ items- the faux crocodile shell of the AI2 I thought was especially eye-catching, along with the Hero, which treats the human form “just like an animal skin, with with the ribcage and sternum at the front of the case and backbone at the back.” (Does anyone else find that very slightly disturbing?)
