Fashion is inherently aspirational — a medium through which we indulge our deepest desires. If we were drawing up a list of those desires right now, then I’d put money on a vacation being up there for pretty much everyone. Holding a mirror up to the world’s current state of limbo, fashion is reflecting our longing to travel, loud and clear. And it's doing it through luggage.
Tyler, the Creator dropped his seventh album Call Me If You Get Lost last week. And while a new era of Tyler fits had us talking, it was the repeated appearance of the luggage trunk in the album's rollout that stood out for me. First, he stood atop a pile of mammoth trunks and carried a cute LV option in the video for its first single Lumberjack. Then, he dropped videos for WUSYANAME and theBrown Sugar Salmonskit — the luggage trunk playing a supporting cast role in both.
Serving up a real-world extension to the Wes Anderson-style videos of the Call Me If You Get Lost era, Tyler turned up at the BET Awards last night with two trunks in tow, alongside the animal print sweater and shorts ensemble he's been wearing pretty much non-stop recently.
