I was delighted to find that J.Crew’s latest luggage collection is named after my former home of Lugano, Switzerland! Someone over at J.Crew (was it Jenna?) must have been so smitten by beautiful Lugano they decided to name the line after it. Ten minutes from the the Swiss-Italian border, the Italian speaking city sits on Lago di Lugano (see my image below) just thirty minutes north of Italy’s famous Lago di Como. I was fortunate enough to live in Lugano for two years and miss it dearly. The city has all the efficiency and cleanliness of a Swiss town paired with the Italian’s mouth-watering food and general zest for life—talk about an unbeatable combination! J.Crew’s vibrant leather luggage line does Lugano justice with luxurious Italian leather in custom J.Crew colors of orange and stone. The Swiss would approve!
