The 36 piece collection is a timeless take on travel accessories. Says Erickson Beamon founder Karen Erickson, “It was so important to incorporate signature elements of Erickson Beamon into this collection. I had so much fun: I love textiles, and it’s no surprise that I love to play with proportion and color. I enlarged images of the jewelry to create my own prints. The result is at once photorealistic and somewhat abstract.”
Classic LeSportsac shapes are given the glamour treatment: here, black patent is quilted into an intricate kaleidoscope jewel pattern; there, a black garment bag sports an opulent pink chandelier; jeweled cocktail ring zipper pulls lend whimsy, while clusters of crystals and pearls, wrapped with delicate gold chain provide the perfect backdrop throughout.
Styles range from travel bags and totes to handbags and small cosmetics cases, as well as the reintroduction of the classic garment bag (Erickson’s favorite) and as described by D’Arcy Jensen, LeSportsac VP Global Creative Director, “A new custom jewelry roll to hold, what else? Erickson Beamon jewels, of course!”
