Currently we are in the height of summer season and whist some of us are choosing to stay at home and embrace the incredible weather; many of you will be traveling abroad to far-flung destinations throughout the world. When it comes to making your way through the airport, it’s important you have the perfect luggage accompaniment at your side. In this latest edit, We’ve picked out three top pieces of baggage that are not only highly functional, but look absolutely brilliant, ensuring you are the envy of every commuter making his or her way through the airport.
ARKET 48-Hour Tote
ARKET is a Swedish brand that sits under the H&M umbrella with its name translating as “a sheet of paper”. They are all about promoting quality and sustainability through their simplistic and very cool products. Made from water-repellent and durable Cordura nylon shell fabric, the 48-Hour Tote has some really great features. Lockable 2-way zip closure, detachable shoulder strap and best of all, inner and outer compartments that are customized in size for standard travel items meaning no rummaging about trying to find your passport, tablet or favourite book. This is a piece that is ideal if you are going for a short overnight, long weekend or taking a few extra items in your hand luggage. Available in four lovely colours and coming in at £69 the 48-Hour Tote is also great value.
Ted Baker SPORTI Carbon Fibre Holdall
When choosing a well-rounded, solid holdall, British brand Ted Baker should be near the top of your list for consideration. Currently they have a lot of great pieces on the website however my top pick would be the SPORTI carbon fibre leather holdall at £329. It comes in a smart charcoal colour and is understated yet striking; especially with it’s cross pattern finish. Hidden inside is a lush, vibrant blue lining, reminding you this is a quality item when you open it up. If you are going away for a long weekend and have filled it to the brim, there is a detachable shoulder strap you can add on for ease of carrying. Really a brilliant all-rounder from Ted Baker.
Rimowa X Off-White Suitcase
Rimowa is a German brand renowned for its incredibly stylish, hand assembled and hardwearing suitcases. Their signature style is the Topas collection, of which you will probably recognize from its ribbed aluminum appearance, however the one that has made this list is very different altogether. In collaboration with Virgil Abloh’s Off-White street wear brand, they have produced a completely transparent polycarbonate suitcase, easily the coolest thing you and fellow travellers will lay eyes on, even more so because all your hand luggage will be completely visible. On release it was priced at £850 however you will likely pay upwards of £2,000 to bag one. Grailed would be my top choice of site to visit and make sure it comes complete with the miniature suitcase containing the orange wheels kit for changing over. Surely the coolest travel item to have by your side.
Having a stylish and functional piece of luggage by your side when you travel is hugely important. Not only will your journey be more comfortable, but it will also offer peace of mind through an item that is well made and designed to protect your belongings within. We believe the above three offer all of this along with putting a smile on your face for that next trip.
