When Luxury Meets Luxurious: Jason Wu’s Enviable St. Regis Tote

By  November 19, 2012

It’s one thing to check into a luxury hotel with elegant luggage, but it’s quite another to check into a hotel while carrying the property’s exclusively designed handbag.

Celebrated designer Jason Wu teamed up with the St Regis Hotels & Resorts to allow devotees exactly that. In continuation of his partnership with the hotel, Wu created The Grand Tourista Bag, a structured tote made of black and white houndstooth, accented with calfs leather trimming. “I see St. Regis as both a classic and a modern name, which I feel is an apt description of my brand as well,” said Wu of the collaboration. “I am really excited to be part of a legacy that is rooted in impeccable style that can stand the test of time, and The Grand Tourista Bag reflects exactly that.” Inside, two pockets were thoughtfully placed by the designer, ideally matched to the size of passports, ebooks, and tablets while accented with St. Regis hallmarks from the 55th St and 5th Avenue location. Alexa Chung and Coco Rocha have already been spotted sporting the handbag around town, cementing its status!

Available in limited edition for $1,995 via St Regis and Jason Wu e-commerce in early December, or for pre-order on Moda Operandi.
