Since then, the brand has remained top in the industry with their consistently innovative products made to simplify their consumer’s world.
One of our favorite pieces from September’s B.E.S.T is the TumiPax. TumiPax combine function with fashion to make traveling and commuting chic and seamless. The lightweight down jacket converts into a travel neck pillow through the pouch hidden in the collar of the coat. In addition, the lightweight down vest converts into a small travel pillow with the hidden pouch that can be found in the collar. Innovative and fun, TumiPax are sure to please!
Beginning in 1975, the founder of Ghurka, Marley Hodgson, designed the first collection of this captivating brand that holds great detail and respect in each individual handbag that is crafted. With these timeless pieces, Ghurka embodies courage and strength within their brand.
The stunning selection on display at B.E.S.T.17 showcased the different ages of fine leather within the collection. “Aged like fine wine” is a saying relevant to the Ghurka handbags. Over time, the leather begins to show its age through the natural wrinkles that form, giving each Ghurka bag its own characteristics and elegance. The signature piece, Cavalier II No. 97 is a universal leather duffel bag with a timeless look that features a long strap that can be adjusted with corresponding hooks.
