Freya offers a luxurious new take on the hat box

Inspired by her search for a case that could fit her hats and all of her travel essentials, former business consultant Linsay Radcliffe teamed with her friend, retail entrepreneur Lindsay McConnon, to launch Freya, a San Francisco-based brand of Italian-made luxury hat cases. “We designed these cases for the modern, independent woman who is driven by curiosity to see the world and intends to do so in style,” says McConnon. “She marries her love of adventure with her love of fashion.” Named after the early-20th-century explorer and travel writer Freya Stark, the company makes its debut with the honeymoon-worthy Poppy carryall, which can hold up to four hats, a laptop and accessories, and the Mini Poppy everyday handbag version, both of which are available in an array of classic colors, metallics and leathers. thefreyabrand.com,
