Packing bags for trips away involves decisions on what to take. But there’s another choice to make: what suitcase will accompany your travels?
There is now an array of luxury luggage brands to pick from and all offer style and practicality in their collections. Companies range from fashion heavyweights Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren to travel specialists Tumi and Samsonite. Even sports car maker Porsche is getting involved with its Driver’s Selection suitcases.
Designs also vary. Veteran luggage manufacturer Rimowa has always been at the forefront of trends by adopting the latest material technology from airplanes for its hard casing. Its products are now visually just as progressive with a sleek, modern design.
