T. Anthony is highlighting its core collection of luxury luggage, from the store's original 1946 canvas cases to its more contemporary alligator leather styles.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
T. Anthony, a New York institution known for its handcrafted designer luggage, is showcasing its premium travel collection, available online at http://www.TAnthony.com and at the company's Park Avenue store. T. Anthony has continued to produce its original canvas line of quality luggage since 1946, in addition to introducing an array of contemporary designs for the modern jet setter.
"T. Anthony has a legacy of serving an elite clientele, from John Lennon and Marilyn Monroe to Jackie O and Ronald and Nancy Reagan. Our luxury luggage embraces a high standard of excellence that has withstood the test of time; we employ a meticulous natural tanning process and handcraft every detail of our products, incorporating only the finest leather and other quality materials," said T. Anthony's president Michael Root, grandson of the company's founder Theodore Anthony.
T. Anthony's classic 32" hardsided packing cases feature hardwood frames covered with durable canvas and full-grain leather accents. Brass hardware and dual combination locks provide an extra dose of flair to this designer luggage, which also includes interior pockets for the traveler's convenience. The original packing cases are available in blue/burgundy, red/black, black/white, and black/tan color schemes; the latter scheme was recently featured in Harpers Bazaar as fashion icon Lynn Wyatt's favorite luxury luggage.
Since 1946, T. Anthony has expanded its canvas line to include a range of additional quality luggage pieces. Shoppers can opt for the store's more compact 29" and 26" packing cases, or invest in one of T. Anthony's specialty shoe, hat, and wardrobe carriers. The store also stocks organizational beauty cases and jewelry wardrobes, which feature interior drawers, fitted trays, bottle straps, and lift-out compartments. For added personalization, each item in T. Anthony's canvas designer luggage line is available with complimentary monogram engraving.
In more modern designs, T. Anthony's alligator luggage offers a high-end, exotic aesthetic bolstered by the brand's detail-oriented construction. The store's artisans spend a full week on each piece of alligator luxury luggage; multiple skins are matched for size and color for a cohesive look superior to mass-produced cases. T. Anthony's showstopping vermillion carry-on boasts elegant glazed leather made from American alligator, with polished nickle hardware accenting its 18" by 13" frame. Providing a more subtle sophistication, the brand's 21" by 14" alligator trolley is crafted in a compelling shade of cognac.
Global travelers will enjoy T. Anthony's Kent leather wheeled carry-on, which is subtly undersized at 16" by 12" to accommodate international restrictions and easily fit under an airplane passenger seat. Available in black and brown, the quality luggage item features scratch resistant leather construction, dual exterior pockets, and an inner zippered compartment for added storage. Shoppers can pair the trolley with the brand's coordinating Kent carry-on duffle, which includes twin top handles and a removable shoulder strap.
