FrontRunners: Trunk Show
Whether you have a fetish for footwear, a fondness for cigars, a weakness for whisky, or all three, T.T. Trunks (www.tttrunks.com) can create a custom-made travel trunk to contain your indulgences. The Parisian company, which launched in 2009, covers its trunks in any of more than 700 available materials and fits them with compartments to accommodate shoes or other accessories. It also offers the Dandy, a model outfitted with a bar and a humidor. The trunks, which can be equipped with recharging stations for computers and phones, take two to three months to complete and are priced from about $9,900 to more than $35,000 for the Dandy.
