New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, is delighted to unveil The Grand Tourista Bag by Jason Wu for St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. Inspired by today’s grand tour and designed with a new generation of luxury travelers in mind, the sophisticated and timeless limited edition piece is informed by the brand’s own rich heritage, The Grand Tourista Bag marks Wu’s first product created exclusively for travel and the first accessory designed for the St. Regis brand.
The Grand Tourista Bag by Jason Wu for St. Regis Hotels & Resorts is a sumptuous shoulder tote designed in a subtle black and white houndstooth pattern on structured canvas with elegant calf leather black trimming. The interior features two pouch pockets lined in viscose/silk grain in Wu’s signature grey color, perfectly-sized for tablets, e-books and a passport. St. Regis hallmarks are embossed on the interior’s leather trim and pay homage to the brand’s flagship hotel on 55th Street and 5th Avenue in New York, opened over a century ago by John Jacob Astor IV.
“I see St. Regis as both a classic and a modern name, which I feel is an apt description of my brand as well,” says St. Regis Connoisseur Jason Wu. “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.”
For centuries, affluent travelers would go on a grand tour through Europe to collect experiences and cultivate knowledge.
