Before you plan your explorations and choose the chicest outfit for your trips, a big priority for a stylish getaway is to find the perfect piece of luggage. With this in mind, here are three of the hottest travel luggage collections that will ensure your summer vacation is literally packed with style.
Alexander McQueen has just announced a collaboration with the legendary luxury-luggage designer Globe-Trotter on a limited-edition travel suitcase. The two-piece collection suitcases—a 21-inch trolley case and a 13-inch utility case—come with gothic touches combined with silver studs, inner prints and a skull padlock in elegant black leather. Definitely a head-turner.
Meanwhile, French fashion house Louis Vuitton has teamed up with industrial designer Marc Newson for a new line of rolling trunks ideal for the modern traveller. Since the main idea of carry-on luggage is to be lightweight, the new products weigh in at less than 2.3kg, or less than 3.3kg for the larger 37-litre cabin size. The luggage is made from an aluminium exoskeleton, which helps to drastically reduce its weight. The new collection is available in seven bright colours and is made of Epi leather. We are definitely obsessed!
The newest collaboration between NikeLab x Kim Jones is not technically a bag nor a luggage item, but more of a travel kit. Inspired by Louis Vuitton’s Menswear Style Director Kim Jones’s fast-paced travelling lifestyle, the new Packable Sport Style collection consists of wind runner jackets, T-shirts, shorts and trousers that can be folded into a miniature pouch (yes, you read that right), making them practical for travellers who are always on the move. How can you say no?
