“Through our partnership with Sunsations Luggage, we are excited to present our innovative designs to the discriminating shoppers and travelers who visit Fashion Island.  As an upscale retailer with stores throughout Southern California, Sunsations was a natural choice for our first partner store.  Travel can be stressful and the Sunsations team shares our commitment to provide great service and product expertise to help business and vacation travelers make good choices that relieve that stress,” notes Richard Krulik, CEO of Briggs & Riley Travelware.
