Halsea "Boat Canyon" roller suitcase
$335

With over a decade of experience designing surf accessories for big names such as Roxy and Paul Frank, Sally Bartz set out on her own to create a more sophisticated brand. Halsea, which began operating in February, makes travel cases adorned with retro patterns inspired by the California seaside. The newest collection from the Costa Mesa, Calif., company includes this stain-resistant laminated canvas roller. The 22" carry-on is accented with soft bridle leather and lined with pink satin. Bartz's products are available through high-end contemporary boutiques, including Anthropologie.
