Away is partnering up with luxury audio and headphone company Master & Dynamic on an exclusive limited edition collection, and it’s all about celebrating the connection between sound and travel. And on the most practical of levels, a good pair of headphones is as crucial for a long flight (or just a brief subway ride, TBH) as a quality suitcase.
It’s more important than ever to shop with purpose, and Away is donating 100 percent of the net proceeds from the six-piece collection to MusiCares’ Coronavirus Relief Fund, a nonprofit organization that provides support to those in the music community who have been affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
All of the bags in the collection feature a new custom interior lining with an abstract pattern inspired by sound waves. There’s an updated version of Away’s Aluminum Edition Carry-On ($525) and Bigger Carry-On ($545) suitcases, with tan leather accents on the handles and zipper, as well tan leather versions of the Daypack ($275) and Everywhere Bag ($325), both of which now have special non-scratch interior pockets that are just happen to be perfectly sized to fit a pair of Master & Dynamic headphones.
Speaking of, the final two pieces in the collab happen to be a pair of headphones in brown leather, with a matching case, for $499, and a set of the earphones that come in a tan-accented case, for $249.
Considering the current state of travel amid the coronavirus pandemic, you might think now isn’t the most opportune time so purchase a new set of luggage. Still, we *will* travel again in the future, and now’s the time to explore via road trips and staycations. Just saying, a good overnight bag is ideal for such excursions, or just as a day tote.
