Australia and New Zealand’s leading destination for bags, Strand is furthering its international expansion with the UK launch of its best-selling fashion travel brand, Nere. Designed in Australia, Nere offers suitcases, travel bags and accessories for the style-conscious traveller.

First launched in Australia and New Zealand in July 2022, Nere’s collections quickly outpaced all other well-known travel brands at Strand. Following this success, Strand made the decision to offer UK customers the same best-selling range.

Strand group CEO, Felicity McGahan said, “We are thrilled to launch Australia’s favourite fashion travel collection in the UK. It’s arriving right in time for summer adventures and holidays, and at a moment when customers are looking to save on travel costs wherever they can, without compromising on style or convenience.

“Nere launched just over two years ago, when we saw the opportunity to take our already successful Flylite travel brand and reimagine it as a travel lifestyle brand, suitable for today’s modern traveller. It’s the epitome of the fashion travel.”

UK customers of Nere can discover four collections: Stori – the most iconic suitcase in runway-inspired colours, Wonda – the sleek and sturdy case in pared-back neutrals, Caype – the case in a softer colour palette with rose gold accents, Relm – the largest volume hard case in rich metallics, and Edit – the soft case offering and lightest suitcase yet.

The complete range offers a suite of options across luggage and accessories including suitcases, mini cases and vanities; tote bags and duffle bags; and luggage tags, straps and packing cubes. 

Nere is now available in the UK via
