Retro Chic: Two Five at

"How can you pass up a chance to own something that looks like what Ingrid Bergman would have carried on the plane when leaving Bogart in Casablanca?" That’s what Cara, the designer behind Two Five’s train cases, says about her products. Two Five was founded by Cara, who took the experience she had in international beauty, entertainment and retail and fueled it into designing multi-functional cases that not only hold cosmetics, but also serve as an overnight case and handbag. Because of her old “Vintage Hollywood Style”, Cara combined a contemporary design with a vintage flair to create a look that is clearly her own, and takes you back to the days of glamorous train travel. Two Five cases, now available at and, are completely retro cool, merging the past with the present. Classic, timeless and unique, these cases are great for any age, regardless of personal style or taste. Features of the cases include: an easy to remove tray with a built-in mirror for those “little touch ups”, a small elastic pouch for storing additional items, a lock with keys, and a water-resistant exterior that’s easy to clean. They fit under any airline seat, can hold makeup, clothing jewelry and other accessories, and can easily be wiped off to clean. Celebrities like Rosario Dawson, Haley Duff, Paris Hilton, Thora Birch, Deidre Hall, Joan Rivers, Jessica Simpson, Maria Menounos, Tori Spelling, and Renee Elise Goldsberry have already snatched up these cases (included in celebrity gift hampers at various awards show in the past year). Even guys love the cases, especially in black. Queer Eye Jay Rodriquez, actors Kevin Sorbo and Andy Dick and the Style Show’s Phillip Bloch have all been seen with them. The press is all over them too! Two Five cases have been featured in magazines like United Hemispheres, Indianapolis Magazine, Teen, Travel Goods, Us Weekly, Elle Girl, Travel Weekly, Celebrity Living, Edge and WWD Accessories (see below).
