The Hills star, Lauren Conrad, was spotted on her way to catching a flight at the Los Angeles International Airport last week. Although the now fashion designer is on an official hiatus from her Lauren Conrad Collection line, she still managed to launch her new clothing line for Kohl’s stores (LC by Lauren Conrad) this last Fall. Keeping that in mind, it is easy to see that Lauren has her own sense of style. For her journey, Lauren was sporting a navy blue boyfriend cardigan over black leggings. She paired the outfit with a pair of knee-high cognac boots. Her hair was left long and loose, while her makeup was kept to a minimum… appropriate for the long flight that lies ahead of her. What struck me by surprise, however, was Lauren’s choice of carry-on bag. Most celebs are spotted with their Louis Vuitton luggage as they trek through the airport. Lauren, on the other hand, appears to prefer a bag from another French designer — the Goyard Carry-On Duffle. This lovely piece features the designer’s signature print in black and red. It looks to be the perfect size for holding all the essentials, without the bulk of a carry-on suitcase. Plus it could easily double as an overnight bag!

Goyard Saint Honore Bag
In celebration of the 180th year in fashion, French malletier (trunkmaker) Goyard is releasing a special limited edition clutch called the Saint Honore Bag, named after the first Paris flagship store located at Saint Honore.
Brief fyi history about Goyard: La Maison Goyard was founded in 1853 in Paris. Edme Goyard worked as a malletier for a company then known as Maison Morel (founded in 1792), which his son, Francois, bought out in 1853. At that time, the company was renamed to what we know today as Goyard. At this time the Paris flagship store was located at Saint Honore (hence the name of the special edition designer bag). A couple years later the chevron canvas was created in 1892, and was traditionally produced in black and red.
The special edition Goyard clutch carries a steep retail price of $4100.
Goyard is sold in fewer than fifteen locations worldwide, including three proprietary boutiques in Paris, San Francisco’s Union Square and The Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong. Other locations include Bergdorf Goodman, select Barneys New York locations and Harvey Nichols Hong Kong. Visit Goyard for the full list.

The Go-Green Goyard St. Louis Shopper Tote
Goyard special green edition canvas purse is designed from 100% recycled natural material without plastic or petroleum. You can find it at your local Barneys, where it retails for $1,095. Also, since Barney’s no longer sells Goyard designer handbags online, visit Goyard.com to get a list of department stores that sell them in your area.
Remember with the monogramming you have to tack on an additional $310. Personally I could resist the recycle symbol, it makes the bag look like a cheap $5 grocery sack, and just go with my initials.
