* Miansai’s Piaggio Scooter on display at Los Angeles International Airport
* Scooter offers curated selection of Miansai’s best-selling products
* Those outside of L.A. can shop the same items online
Miansai is taking its new collection to the friendly skies — well, at least close to it. The American accessories brand recently placed a vintage 1965 Piaggio Scooter at Los Angeles International Airport, allowing travelers to shop from a curated selection of bags, leather goods and fine jewelry.
Though Miansai has a couple retail locations, the company is setting off to reach new customers with a fleet of mobile retail units. Piaggio is just one of Miansai’s “vehicles,” which also includes a vintage Airstream, Fiat and Piaggio trucks. You can go to Miansai.com to check out when the mobile fleet is headed your way.
And if your town or city isn’t one of the stops, don’t fret: you can buy all of the pieces online. Here are three, travel-friendly items you should buy right now.
1. Envelope Wallet in Tobacco
An easy no-fuss wallet that’s well-made and designed for travel. This envelope wallet fits a handful of cards and is slim enough to sit in your pockets. Crafted from genuine Italian leather, it gets softer the more you use it and the tobacco color wears in with age. Get it monogrammed on the Miansai site for even more personalization.
2. Modern Screw Cuff in Rose Gold
A solid piece of jewelry for a guy (or girl), this sleek and strong cuff is a modern twist on the classic screw cuff. The cuff is made with a rose gold plated finish (the color of the season) and a threaded bar closure. Wear it solo or layer it with a good watch. Don’t worry if it gets scuffed up too — that’s part of the charm.
3. Duval Duffle in Black
You’re too old and classy to walk around the airport with a gym bag. Upgrade to something that will last you for years, like this Duval Duffle. The premium Italian leather duffle features adjustable bridle leather shoulder straps. The bag also boasts zippered pockets on the outside and interior. Pick it up in black so it never goes out of style.
The Miansai Piaggio pop-up runs until December 31 at LAX. The mobile retail units are traveling up and down the Atlantic and Pacific coasts to promote Miansai’s coastal brand as part of the 2017 Mobile Tour. Click here to see more dates and info.
