To be honest, it took a while for me to fully appreciate Wes Anderson’s films. My first experience with a Wes Anderson film was when I saw parts of The Royal Tenenbaums. I couldn’t get all the way through it at the time since I was young and some of those scenes were a little too graphic for a tween. Years later I watched Moonrise Kingdom, and then most recently, The Grand Budapest Hotel. It was with this last film that I became a fan.
In all of his movies one thing is for certain: Wes’s attention to detail is incomparable. The graphics, props, colors, costumes, and the invented worlds are imaginative, whimsical, and unlike any other. So, when I saw that there were travel bags created that were inspired by Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited, I couldn’t help but obsess over them (and scroll through the brand’s Instagram feed). In addition to bags, the shop owner, who is an Italian lawyer, makes other pieces of clothing, phone cases, and stickers that are all Wes-inspired.
But back to the luggage. I love when props from films come to life, especially when they’re from movies that are creative and meticulous when it comes to every pieces that is used on set. Also, how great are the palm trees, rhinos, giraffes, and zebras?
