Once upon a time it was fashionable to globe trot, jet set, have passport stamped but today travel is an integral part of life be it work or just some time off with people you love. That doesn’t mean fashion has left its famed companion after all these years, quite the contrary. Every time you travel for business or leisure it somehow does spill over to your twitter or instagram or snapchat accounts (depending on how old you are) which then ties into the style quotient of your travel. Being a stylish traveller effortlessly ups the game on your social media and gets attention to the repository. As vain and narcissistic as it sounds it’s been happening since instagram found its audience.
Circling back to travel style quotient, nothing gets us more excited about travelling than to have a stylish and sexy travel luggage carrying our clothes and accessories. We have filtered out some of the best trollies, carry on baggage for this summer keeping in mind the sultry season and the destinations to visit when the sun is out.
First up is Globe Trotter who come with a seal of approval from HM the Queen. Their ‘ The Goring Hotel’ collection which we can assure even you wouldn’t be done ogling while on travel. It emphasizes on how essential style is to travel and the sense of renewed joy it can offer just by travelling with the most impeccable luggage. It has a cream fiberboard trolley with navy leather corners and burgundy straps and gold hardware to finish the touch of decadence. The trolley is of different sizes we have picked a 21’’ to showcase. Along with the trolley is your carry on essentials luggage and vanity case. The interior is lined in silk- damask by the Gainsborough Silk Weaving Company as an inspiration from the wall hangings adorned by the Royal Suite of the Belgravia hotel.
We love Serapian for its quintessential Italian craftsmanship and classic design that give it the authentic European feel. The richness of leather true to its Italian heritage and gold hardware makes it a collectible more than a travel accessory. From Gucci, we love the ‘Tourisma’ travel trolley and the weekend bag. The travel trolley is printed with the brand motif and is crafted from the durable coated canvas with dark-brown leather trims, two-way zip fastening along top and sides and comes with dust bag. The interior is lined with canvas and has zipped compartment with buckled straps to keeps things segregated and in place. The weekend duffle bag is called the Joy bag obviously for its purpose of weekend travel. It is best for in-flight carry-on or just a road trip to a luxury spa resort.
The Bellagio by Bric’s communicates a lot about the traveller’s taste and style by its exterior design. It says the traveller is has a sense of self-worth, is sophisticated and well-heeled. It is durable, lightweight and quite compact perfect for a jet setting traveller. Then there is Magellano trolley which is petite in its form and look but packs in your essentials for a carry on bag. It has 4 wheels with 360 smooth gliding rotation and retractable handle. This one is ideal for a short break or an additional bag for the essentials.
You can find all of these in the luggage section of Net-a-porter and Harrods
