SCALING UP: As the statement luggage craze continues to gain momentum, a crocodile trolley suitcase will be among the special editions at a just-opened yearlong Ethan K pop-up shop at Galeries Lafayette Haussmann in Paris, selling at 16,300 euros. The installation was conceived in collaboration with interior designer Juan Pablo Molyneux.
