Serena Williams is just like us—she misses travel. So, she teamed up with beloved suitcase brand, Away, to create a collaboration that's sleek, fun, and—the best part—usable right now, even if there's no big trip on the horizon. While getting on a plane may be far from the top of mind these days, she reflected on her many years of flying to tournaments to inspire her second collection.

The tennis pro is no stranger to travel, and she brings that expertise to update classics and launch totally new pieces. The collection features three new colors and patterns of the brand-favorite Carry-On, packing cubes, and lots of accessories. Each piece is designed to make it a breeze to pack, or to keep you organized for your weekly grocery store run. You don't have to have a bucket list trip planned to make sure you have the perfect backpack or waist pack right now.

You can shop the entire collection at And to get you started, we picked out a few of our favorites below.

Away x Serena Williams The Front Pocket Sling Bag

One item we could definitely see using right now is the Front Pocket Sling Bag. Whether running to grab a coffee or heading out to explore on a hike, the hip belt keeps everything in its place. With a card slot, two elastic loops for headphones and chapstick, plus a separate zippered pocket, this tiny organizer packs a big punch.

Away The Pet Carrier

If you adopted a pet during quarantine, or are still on the waiting list for one, you're likely going to need an easy way to get your pet around town. This limited edition dark swirl pattern is minimalistic in style but maximizes storage space. A large side zip pocket has enough space for Fido's leash and toy, plus your wallet, phone, and keys.

Away x Serena Williams The Mini Convertible Backpack

The mini convertible backpack tote has just the right amount of space for all your needs right now. While the larger convertible backpack tote will handle all your commuting needs, the mini sidekick is great for exploring your own neighborhood, or as an alternative to your purse.

With straps and a top handle, you choose how you want to carry it. The star accent keychain can be personalized with up to three embroidered letters, so you'll never lose it. Water-resistant nylon wipes dry, and interior mesh pockets keep your water bottle separate from your notebook and wallet.

Away x Serena Williams The Jewelry Sleeve

Small space dwellers, this one is for you. If you're looking for a way to organize your jewelry, but don't have anywhere to put a jewelry box, this travel case works wonders. A zippered pocket holds up to 8 pairs of earrings, and leather loops with snaps keep your necklaces and bracelets from tangling.

There's also an external pocket to stash your watch or tracker, and a soft ring tube (also with snaps) to keep all your gems from scratching each other.
