In 2022, travel is finally opening in full swing. But one of the many tasks to tick from your travel checklist is investing in great luggage and stocking up on travel accessories.
For some travellers, designer luggage is an airport staple, and to travel smart, it’s imperative to have a stylish and durable suitcase. Pick a classic Louis Vuitton or Gucci suitcase or amp up the fun with a printed Gucci and Disney backpack. For a formal appeal, Balmain’s sleek black duffle will be your best bet. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite travel essentials to fit every type of traveller, whether you’re looking for something neutral or a stand-out piece. Goyard Satolas GM
The Satolas GM is a dream to carry around, thanks to its four 360-degree wheels. Perfect in size for check-in baggage with two polycarbonate shells, the bag is made with canvas and clamecy cowhide. If brown isn’t your preferred choice, you can even pick the black option.
Why be basic when you can make a statement? For fuss-free travel, Gucci’s GG supreme canvas backpack is the ideal choice. Spacious enough to fit your laptop and essentials, if you are someone who likes to infuse a quirky element to your style, this should be on your radar.
All you fashion mavericks we have the perfect travel companion for you! Say hello to Gucci’s Bamboo small backpack defined by its impressive bamboo detailing. Crafted in smooth pink leather, the accessory is inspired by styles introduced in the House’s collections of the 90s. It is also available in black, brown, white and blue.
Louis Vuitton has for many decades been the chosen brand when it comes to luxury travel. One of the most iconic bags they have is the Horizon 55. We’ve picked out a glamorous edition of this bag with its titanium shell that pays homage to the original monogram branding. A 4-wheel cabin bag, it is at once functional and stylish with smooth leather trimmings on the corner, mixing modernity and savoir-faire. It is available in a range of colours – a pink shade of EPI Leather, Monogram Canvas and Eclipse Monogram to name a few.
If you’re whizzing off for a quick getaway, the travel bag you need should be compact and lightweight. Balmain’s Holdall Bag made with cotton-calfskin blend fits effortlessly into an airplane’s overhead storage (or into the back of your car). The duffel is spacious with one zipper inside for your important elements. And might we add, your hands will appreciate the soft leather grab handles and adjustable shoulder strap.
The Dior Travel suitcase combines emblematic House elements with relaxed and modern design. Made with blue waterproof Dior Oblique technical jacquard, the front is embellished with the signature brand logo. The medium suitcase is an ideal, and well-designed travel companion with two wheels, a retractable telescopic handle and a TSA-approved lock.
Get a good night’s sleep before your touchdown courtesy of Fendi’s reversible eye mask. The luxurious lustrous blush and black silk-satin material with an elasticated strap prioritize comfort. When not in use, stow your mask in the drawstring pouch.
Make it easy to identify your luggage with the Hermès leather luggage tags. A premium luggage tag that is the Rolls-Royce of travel accessories, this gorgeous bleu de prusse luggage tag is handcrafted using a combination of three different signature Hermès leathers: togo and swift calfskin and taurillon clemence leather.
