There are a few unexpected brand collaborations that turn out to be ones we didn’t know we needed and Monos’s new partnership with the iconic Magnolia Bakery is one of the greatest examples of this to date.
While the two popular brands have very little in common, their collaboration doesn’t seem forced or gimmicky. Instead, it breathes fresh air and adds a fun flair to the classic-yet-affordable luggage brand, proving that quality materials and fun, inspired designs can easily go hand-in-hand.
The new collection sees Magnolia Bakery — home to the nation’s best banana pudding and desserts — bring the iconic colors of some of its sweet treats to Monos’s core collection. From carry-ons and check-ins to backpacks and sling bags, this limited-edition collection makes traveling a stylish and sweet statement.
These limited-edition pieces are inspired by the bakery’s most beloved desserts, the world-famous banana pudding and lavender cupcake and cake icing. Both hues are the main colorways for this new line.
If you’re traveling soon, this collection is the perfect way of declaring spring has sprung! Each product is available in both new colors.
Check out our 10 favorite picks from the new Monos x Magnolia Bakery collection below and shop now while supplies last.
1. Monos x Magnolia Bakery Carry-On, $320
The Monos Carry-On is the perfect carry-on suitcase that’s guaranteed to fit in planes’ overhead compartments. Like all of the brands’ hardside suitcases, it has an unbreakable polycarbonate shell, an ultra-sturdy telescopic handle, a TSA-approved lock, whisper-quiet wheels and vegan leather details.
2. Monos x Magnolia Bakery Carry-On Plus, $340
The best-selling Monos Carry-On Plus is specifically designed with luggage dimensions that fit in the overhead compartment of larger planes from major US airlines. However, it may need to be checked on smaller planes.
3. Monos x Magnolia Bakery Carry-On Pro, $345
The Carry-On Pro fits in the overhead bin of almost any flight, anywhere in the world, but what sets it apart from the rest is its front compartment that gives you easy access while you travel. Store your 15-inch laptop, passport and other necessities within reach.
4. Monos x Magnolia Bakery Check-In Medium, $395
The Check-In Medium is ideal for those who want more luggage space but don’t want to go too big. It’s the perfect mid-size suitcase. Also, if you already have or plan on purchasing the Monos x Magnolia Bakery Carry-On, it nests inside the Check-In Medium for easy storage.
5. Monos x Magnolia Bakery Check-In Large, $430
Looking for all the space you can get? The Check-In Large is the way to go. It has all the space you need to store all your necessities and lots of extras.
6. Monos x Magnolia Bakery Metro Duffel, $230
The best-selling, water-resistant Metro Duffel is a perfect multi-purpose companion for everyday travel. Whether you’re going on a weekend trip or heading on your daily commute, this is one you’ll be glad you own.
7. Monos x Magnolia Bakery Metro Backpack, $220
The popular Metro Backpack also has a sleek profile and is water-resistant. It functions similarly to the Metro Duffel, but with backpack integration. Both products also have Monos’ unique QuickSnap Modular Kit System that lets you swap out the interchangeable Metro Kit as you see fit.
8. Monos x Magnolia Bakery Compressible Packing Cubes, $90 – $110
In my opinion, Monos makes the best packing cubes on the market because they compress, allowing you to fit and pack more without adding extra bulk. Choose from two quantities (a set of four or a set of six).
9. Monos x Magnolia Bakery Metro Folio Kit, $60
The Metro Folio Kit is a must-have travel companion. It functions as a wallet, passport folio, e-reader/tablet kit, tech accessories holder, key holder and more. You’ll be glad you got this!
10. Monos x Magnolia Bakery Metro Sling, $80
Lastly, the Metro Sling is the perfect crossbody bag for travel. However, it’s sleek and stylish enough to use for everyday life or heading out to a concert or running errands. Plus, this slim sling has tons of compartments and storage inside.
