Welcome aboard, this is your pilot speaking. The debut Collina Strada handbag collection is ready for takeoff.

Our destination: Morocco, home to L.A. designer Hillary Taymour’s handcrafted leather and ecofriendly canvas purses and clutches.

Those in first class will enjoy the buttery-soft lambskin Ferra bag, a luxuriously spacious and lightweight compartment for all your personal belongings.

The multifunctional Zeba with detachable messenger strap — great for business or pleasure — can be slung across the body or travel shoulder side.

Store your carry-on Alea under the seat in front of you. Done in printed organic canvas, its just-right size fits all the necessities.

In the case of a fashion emergency, place hands through the safety suede strings of the fringed goatskin Sveva clutch.
