No matter the destination, when Niven Morgan travels, it’s always in style.

Known for his namesake line of bath products and must-have candles, Shreveport native Niven Morgan has called Dallas home for 30 years. From his base in University Park, he logs tens of thousands of miles a year traveling everywhere from McAllen, Texas, for trunk shows to Mustique, where he and his husband, interior designer Shelby Wagner, spend the holidays. He’s never without his Louis Vuitton luggage­­­­—the new men’s store is now open at NorthPark Center­—and one of his Hermès Hacs, which he carries on and packs with essentials like pens and a notebook, a cashmere blanket and a change of clothes. “Once, I was in the Admirals lounge at LAX and sat on a chocolate chip cookie. Now I always carry on clothes.”
