The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to update your travel kit. Start by upgrading your rolling luggage with Louis Vuitton’s Horizon collection, designed by Marc Newson and now offered in a check-in size 70. A good carry-on, meanwhile, can also double as a weekend bag. Have on hand coordinating wardrobe staples that can take you through most settings: a crew-neck sweater, dark denim, simple tee, navy blazer, white dress shirt, classic trench, clean white sneakers, tortoise-frame sunglasses, swim shorts and a pair of sandals. Add in some wireless headphones, and you’re good to go.
