Remember the high-energy hecticness of crowded terminals and bustling train stations? The feeling of relief after dashing to make a train, and actually catching it? And above all, the joys of simply having somewhere to whiz off to? Vogue’s June/July 2021 issue takes us on a journey through the new Moynihan Train Hall at Penn Station with Bella Hadid as its premier passenger. No matter your destination, whether you’re staying local-ish with a jaunt out East or embarking on a rail ride to another corner of the country, Tonne Goodman shares the ultimate inspiration for a very stylish but practical transit. Feeling a wanderlust we can all relate to, Hadid sets off in search of adventure in travel-friendly silhouettes, comfortable footwear, and of course, stylish luggage in tow.
Last-minute track change? A pair of sporty trainers and an overnight bag make a quick dash a flash. Fendi’s clip-on Airpod case will ensure you’re never without your playlists or podcasts for long journeys or short commutes. Toting a well-proportioned Hermès carryall and a nifty Fendi crossbody, Hadid makes haste.
Locating your suitcases is easy when you have your own set of coordinated luggage. Grab and go, even with a surfboard in tow. In a perfect pairing of the pretty and the practical, Hadid keeps things moving.
The Right Track
Even with The Hive—a sculptural installation by Elmgreen & Dragset—impressively poised overhead, Hadid cuts a bold figure of her own. With a cheery colored carry-on and walking shoes in orange hues, you’ll be sure to stand out amongst a sea of neutral-clad passengers whether you’re syncing up with friends before departure or waiting for pickup upon arrival.
Seated beneath photographic panels by the artist Stan Douglas, Hadid offers an incisive lesson in on-the-go cool. An Audemars Piguet watch is a sleek accessory for when there’s time to kill. While Saint Laurent’s stylish tennis racket and Loro Piana’s cap are a winning pairing when it’s time for weekend leisure.
For the light packer, the hitchhiker’s uniform gets a high-fashion, color-blocked twist. An eye-catching yellow duffle isn’t complete without its primary-colored counterparts, like a bold blue bucket hat, rose-tinted shades, and a pair of high-waisted shorts.
