Stylish Traveler

Iconic luggage for all your travel needs.
By Carrie Williamson Posted on March 27, 2020


Globe-Trotter luggage. Boasting a high-gloss, metallic exterior, leather accents and a plush interior lining, Globe-Trotter luggage harkens back to the golden age of travel. Explorer Robert Scott, British royals and even James Bond in the movie Skyfall have traveled with these iconic suitcases. Handcrafted using materials that date back to 1903 and the original Victorian machinery at Globe-Trotter’s factory in Hertfordshire, U.K., they are lightweight yet strong. The new Deluxe Amethyst Collection is inspired by the hues of the gemstone. Among the eight pieces are a vanity case, rolling trolley case and extra deep suitcase. Opt for Globe-Trotter’s bespoke services if you’d prefer to select your own colors, finishes, lining and initialing.


Clare V. Simple Totes Designer Clare Vivier has added a new line of Simple Totes to her collection of accessories and handbags. The sophisticated totes are roomy enough to carry everything you need on board while not being too bulky and have an interior pocket and shoulder strap. There are several styles, including a suede tote with mini stripes in various color combinations and a woven leather bag finished with a paper foil wash to give it an element of shine. Monograms in blue/poppy, black cream and blue/green are painted on by hand. $495 to $595.

Loro Piana Traveller jacket. The latest addition to Loro Piana’s collection of timeless cashmere and wool Italian clothing is the Traveller, a field jacket for men and women. Made of a trademarked microfiber shell that has been treated with Storm System and lined with cashmere, it is waterproof, wind-resistant and luxurious. A tab fastener at the neck and an adjustable drawstring waist help to keep out the elements, while the hood can be zipped into the collar for a more polished look. Two patch pockets, two flap pockets (velvet lined) and three interior pockets provide places to stash travel documents and gadgets. Choose from sand shell, onyx, blue navy, and cobalt ink. $2,995 (Cashmere spun only of the belly fibers from baby goats in Inner Mongolia isn’t cheap.)
