It is Escapes month here at Apartment Therapy, but we all know that one of the most daunting aspects of going on vacation--or anywhere by plane, for that matter--is the airport. Unfortunately, the greater part of this last decade has been met with heightened security measures that often translate to the traveler into inconvenient policies and hyper-sensitivity to things like 4 oz. bottles of liquid and, say, shoes. But these suitcases are here to infuse our travel with a bit of much needed humor and fun.
Sonia Verguet, or PinkWolf, from St. Claude, France, has hand restored vintage suitcases. Displaying a fantastic sense of dark humor, she has added the relief of a weapon to each case. Sure to raise the hair on the necks of airport security, we think these are a fantastic reminder that even the most treacherous part of an escape can still be fun. While we won't make light of actual weapons on planes, perhaps this can be a reminder that we ought not take ourselves too seriously all of the time.
Each suitcase is different, but range from €100.00-€120.00, and are available here.
