Arlo Skye, founded by former Apple and Tumi execs, is part of a new crop of luxury luggage brands cutting out the middleman and selling directly to consumers. Think Rimowa quality and style meets Harry's business model and e-commerce strategy. It's smart and we're most certainly fans.
They just teamed up with Audi for an exclusive carry-on with a low-gloss black finish and handles designed in full grain, Italian leather.
It's cased in an anodized aluminum alloy that is 2.3x stronger than polycarbonate plastic suitcases and finished off with some red stitching, an integrated portable charger, "whisper quiet" wheels, and an easy open/close frame that goes away with the outer zipper.
Pair with an R8 (or A7, S5 Sportback, S6, you name it) for optimum coolness.
