We always thought the key to travelling in style was remembering to bring important things like underwear and not filling up your suitcase with 15 pairs of identical high heels.
Oh, how wrong we were – it’s actually what’s on the outside of your case that counts. We’re all guilty of a little people-watching when at the airport, and it’s safe to say others are checking you out, too.
Think about it: Amal Clooney or Fan Bingbing wouldn’t be caught dead carrying a fraying old suitcase with a dodgy zip, and neither should you. So let your luggage do the talking – hopefully all the way to a first class upgrade.
Rimowa Bossa Nova
Forget partners or children, the Rimowa Bossa Nova Suitcase is the ideal travel companion. It is impact-resistant, waterproof, and has eight spinning wheels, which means it can twirl and spin like a ballerina as you hurtle through the airport. And best of all, it has an electronic tag that lets you keep a beady eye on it throughout the journey. Did we mention that it’s beautiful, too?
MCM Nomad Weekender
Oh, how we long for the heady air travel hey-days of the 1970s. Well, with the MCM Nomad Weekender Bag, you’re halfway there. Inspired by Bauhaus design, David Bowie, and the conceptual creations of Germany’s modern art pioneer Oskar Schlemmer, this bag is pure Ziggy Stardust.
Prada Tessuto Soft Calf Backpack
Long gone are the days when the humble backpack was the preserve of tour guides and hapless students. The hands-free travel gem has staged an enviable reinvention and Prada’s is arguably the coolest of all — customise it in nappa leather, crocodile or ostrich in small, medium and large sizes to match your onboard outfit. Find your perfect backpack here.
