Rashida Jones Collaborates With Luggage Brand Away [Instagram]
Rashida Jones has teamed with Away, the luxury luggage brand known for its elegant, minimalist hard-shell suitcases featuring a built-in USB charging unit, on a capsule collection. The Parks and Recreation alum chose three new colorways for the brand's classic roller case (seafoam, a salmon-y pink and violet) and also designed a tote and "packing cube," each inspired by her travels to Stockholm ($45-$295). A portion of the proceeds from the capsule will be donated to the International Rescue Committee.
So excited to announce my capsule collection with @away! Three new colorways of their fab suitcases plus two new products I helped to create - all inspired by the functional femininity of Scandinavian design. Plus a portion of the profits go to @theirc.

"Worth noting that this actually works (not a mockup)," Musk wrote Wednesday on Instagram. "Already tested to double vacuum pressure. Was incredibly hard to balance esthetics and function. Easy to do either separately." We'd say mission accomplished.
