ActressВ Shay Mitchell has made a name for herself outside of her Pretty Little Liars persona as a veritable travel pro, inВ part thanks to her YouTube series #SHAYCATION. Past episodes show the current You star exploring luxurious resorts in Bali, floating around in hot air balloons in Marrakech, and touring Hong Kong's street markets. Though Mitchell's love for wanderlust is nothing new. "I have had wanderlust my entire life, and I remember being very young knowing that I wanted to see as much of the world as I could,вЂќ Mitchell told People magazine.В Now, she's taken her jet-settingВ hobby to the next level with the launch of a stylish (and affordable) line of travel accessories. Named BГ©is, the travel-ready line is available atВ Nordstrom with products starting at just $25. According to a press release, the line "seeks to provide purposeful organization, through impeccable design and chic shapes, for day-to-day travel."
The collection is comprised of seven sleek and chic styles, including a duffle, weekender (we're loving the separate compartment for a pair of shoes-though judging by the brand's Instagram pics, it looks like you can fit a few pairs, score!), a backpack that looks perfect for a subway commute or spin around the farmers market, DoppВ kit for all of your self-care essentials, makeup case, passport holder, and luggage tag. The travel products come in a variety of muted tones from beigeВ to black, while pink, blue, yellow and green accents adorn the smaller travel accessories.
"Throughout my life and career, I've been fortunate enough to travel all over the worldвЂ¦ I realized there was a need for chic, affordable, and durable pieces for travelers like myselfВ and that is why I decided to create BГ‰IS," Mitchell said in a press release.
Key features include, "practical details, including water resistant linings, internal and external pockets, padded laptop sleeves, and zip compartments," the press release reads.
вЂњMost of the products that we are launching with can be used for travel or for the everyday person going to work or school. The cosmetic case can be for the woman on the go. The weekender can be a travel bag or tote groceries. The duffel can be a gym bag and so on. I wanted the bags to have many functionalities while providing value for the consumers,вЂќ Mitchell told People magazine.
And true to Millennial generation form, the startup brand also touts a social impact component. BГ‰IS supports Girl Up, the United Nations Foundation's initiative that stands for girls' empowerment and education. For every product purchased,В BГ©is will donate a portion of the proceeds to the organization.
Since the brand's launch, BГ‰IS has expanded its product line to include a beach tote, fanny pack (it comes in a see-through version; part of Mitchell's Limited Edition Festival Collection, which launched in 2019-the collection includes partially see-through Hat Tote and a mini duffel), and in-flight organizer. Practical, functional, trendy, yet classic? We're sold.
