Purchasing a new piece of luggage can lead to some difficult decisions. Many questions arise, like what size is best for the type of traveling I do? What features must the bag have? And lastly, what is the best brand to get? With so many designer brands delving into the luxury luggage market, these decisions continue to become even harder to make. These are my picks of the best luxury luggage.
Gucci Supreme canvas carry-on suitcase
Ever since being founded by Guccio Gucci in 1921, this Italian brand has become one of the most instantly recognizable names within the fashion industry, representing impeccable style and craftsmanship. The Supreme carry-on bag from Gucci is ideal for long weekends or to take with you on board. Made from durable coated canvas adorned with the label’s GG insignia, this large holdall is trimmed in smooth chocolate brown leather and brown leather handles.
Fendi printed faux textured-leather travel trolley
Known for its iconic FF monogram, Fendi’s faux-textured leather travel suitcase is adorned with gold studs and trimmed in smooth, signature brown leather. This stylish yet practical piece features a front pocket to keep travel documents within easy reach and internal buckled straps to secure your items.
Eddie Harrop The Voyager fringed textured-leather weekend bag
Handcrafted by local artisans, The Voyager weekend bag from Eddie Harrop features cool grey leather with a stylish touch of fringe. With metal feet for protection, this generously-sized weekend bag includes an interior pocket and a detachable shoulder strap to keep your hands free when on the go. Neon-orange stars on the zip pulls add a subtle pop of color.
Globe-Trotter Champagne 33″ extra deep suitcase
The spacious interior of Globe-Trotter’s larger cases adds function to the simple yet vintage look of the luggage brand, which has been making suitcases since 1897. Englishman David Nelken founded Globe-Trotter in Germany but moved it to the UK in 1901 and it has remained there ever since. Past owners include the Queen and Winston Churchill. Its Deluxe Editions include the luxurious Champagne (seen here), Caviar, Orient and Pearl color schemes, all with high-quality leather corners and straps.
