MEET | KELLY CORROON
Featured 5.1-5.7.17 | Imagine a world in which travel was still considered to be one of life's greatest joys. Where people got on airplanes wearing smart suits and sweater sets rather than velour sweatsuits and flip-flops. Where carry-on bags were tailored and chic and fit into the overhead compartments without so much as a tap, rather than bags bulging at the seams that require the strength of two or three people to jam it into place. Then meet Kelly Corroon, the woman who is single-handedly trying to make this magical world a reality. She took her first transatlantic trip to Paris at the age of 12, and has been hooked on travel ever since — so much so that she dropped everything and started her own line of luxe luggage and travel accessories to bring civility back to travel. She also loves hand-written notes and remembers almost every event in her life by what she was wearing, so while she's a thoroughly modern woman with a passion for football (Go Green Bay!) and Improv, she may have come from a bygone era. Her selects are a beautiful mix of old and new and are just as elegant as she is. Welcome to Kelly's week.

These days I have less time to do the hands on work, which I regret. That combined with a recent personal experience, made me change the way I feel about giving money to people begging on the street. So now if I have it, I always give it. I believe that sometimes charity doesn’t have to be more complicated than that.Read More
