They go to the club, they come with you to festivals and bounce around in Ubers. A stable bag is a modern necessity. It carries your phone, your wallet, and whatever other handy items you may need on your day-to-day.

MCM’s Travia is an elevated and different approach to sophistication. Sturdy and durable while maintaining an air of grace through the subtle details, including a re-imagination of the brand's logo which has been encircled by a ring of refinement. The Travia is a sturdy genderless cosmopolitan bag that features a strong magnetic clip that keeps your bag shut, giving you the security to frolic as you desire. We caught up with @sabrinaaalan_, @thejudes, and @curlyfrysfeed as they spilled the tea on their bag habits, day-to-day essentials, and the MCM Travia.

What do you keep in your bag?

curlyfrysfeed: I don’t carry anything out of the ordinary. I keep things simple and carry essentials only.

sabrinaaalan_: I am a very forgetful person. I always leave my phone and wallet behind at home. However, one thing that always stays in my bag no matter what is my airpod.

What do you like about the MCM Travia?

thejudes: I was blown away by the quality of the bag, the construction, the leather/ hardware, and the attention to detail. Out of all the luxury bags I own, I felt like the Travia bag could go and last through the trenches with me! Haha!

I love opening and closing this bag. The inside is soft and it's a nice moment to grab something in your purse and feel the softness brush up against your hand. When you close the bag, it has a strong magnet that makes a satisfying "click" sound. Oddly enough, this bag has a lot of sensory pleasures that I enjoy. At one point in my life, I always had a box of 24 Crayola crayons in my bag, but I have since graduated to carrying a pair of pikachu child scissors and a very tiny pencil that you'd use to mark up a golf card with.

sabrinaaalan_: I also love the magnetic snap! It is so strong and makes me feel secure. Though My favorite part about the MCM Travia is its simple minimal design and the classic tonal accent that makes it my perfect go-to bag for a date night. I try to bring around my own metal chopsticks.

How do you feel about other people going through your bag?

thejudes: I would be annoyed and sussed out. But also, I always have meds in my bag so I wouldn't mind if a friend went through my bag to help themselves some.

Do you have any secret spots in your city??

thejudes: I moved to NYC less than a year ago, so I'm still trying to find "my spots". I definitely have a few in Brooklyn.

curlyfrysfeed: I’ve very recently moved to London, so I’m still very much in the exploration phase! Right now, my secret spot is my home. My favorite getaway outside the city is my mum’s home in Manchester! I'm really close to my mum - and nothing beats mum’s cooking.

sabrinaaalan_: I just moved to a new apartment that has a spacious backyard. I love to take a break during the day there, since it has so many beautiful flowers and trees. There are lakes all around Berlin that my friends and I go on the weekend to swim and relax..
