Serena Williams is a woman of many titles. The tennis legend, entrepreneur, fashion icon and badass mom is now adding a new one to the mix — luggage designer. Yes, you read that correctly. As if Serena Williams didn’t already do it all, now the G.O.A.T. is entering the travel game with an exclusive partnership with popular luggage brand Away Travel.
The first release in the multi-year partnership is a limited edition line-up of Away x Serena Williams products, co-designed by Serena Williams herself. Designed with the jet-setter in mind, the line will feature Away’s classic suitcases, as well as a collection of soft side, nylon suitcases from the brand’s new expandable line.
Here at ESSENCE we already know that our September cover girl Serena is the epitome of #BlackGirlMagic, so it’s no surprise that the team at Away chose her for their partnership. “Serena defines today’s modern traveler, and her dynamic, multi-faceted lifestyle perfectly mirrors the essence of our brand and what Away stands for,” says Jen Rubio, Away co-founder, and Chief Brand Officer.
The Away x Serena Williams collection will be available for purchase beginning today and will be found exclusively at awaytravel.com and in Away stores. However, if you and your wallet aren’t ready to get carried away with Serena, check out these other carry on bags we found that are not only chic but affordable.
