Ready to upgrade your luggage and add more style to the bags you travel with? Designer touches convert ordinary suitcases into the best-dressed ones at the luggage carousel. What's more, designer luggage is a stand-out; no one will mistake your couture collection of checked and carry-on luggage for theirs and spirit your suitcases away.
Below are some of my recommendations for the best in designer luggage.
A princess, a business woman, and a peripatetic world traveler, designer Diane Von Furstenberg
knows luggage. Her pieces all feature her signature heart plus a locking, ergonomic push-button handle with the new DVF logo. They can be used singly for a weekend getaway or together for a longer trip.
While the name of Tumi's designer isn't well known to the general public, Tumi's Presidio luggage collection is the status luggage to carry. The group consists of matching pieces ranging from travel kits and boarding totes to backpacks and garment bags to oversize suitcases for long journeys.
Chic and minimalist like his clothing lines, Calvin Klein Luggage is available in navy and black. Luggage pieces include a rolling garment bag.
Even if you don't hail from Beverly Hills and aren't yet a star, designer Ricardo is eager to outfit you as one. He offers five different but matching pieces of luggage in this attention-getting designer set. Each is sheathed in a jungle-printed cotton tapestry fabric. The matching luggage pieces include a rolling tote, duffel, shopper tote, and 21" and 26" two-compartment pullmans. All are water-resistant.
Vera Bradley is a designer known for making soft, quilted bags. Whether your taste runs to pretty paisleys or urban cool, this designer's luggage may suit your needs. Her collection includes duffel and garment bags, rolling luggage and carryons.
