Traveling is a luxury. Even if you’re hitting the road to go next town for a long weekend. The fact that we can go somewhere else is a privilege (and the no-vacation trip quarantine highlighted it for us). Thanks to everyone who got vaccinated, we could all resume our travel plans, and if you’re rich enough to not fly the wild coach, here are the luxury suitcases, carry-ons, and weekenders that will be a good fit in first class and make an impression in business. Of course, when shopping for luggage we want the best in durability, space/organization, and mobility. So, in this post, you’ll find the most high-end luggage, from the Original aluminum Rimowa to titanium Louis Vuitton and full-grain leather Brunello Cucinelli. But there’s also monogrammed canvas, polycarbonate, and all sizes from cabin carry-ons to trunk checked baggage. Bon voyage!
Luxury Designer Suitcases & Carry-Ons
Luxury Monogram Titanium Suitcase, Louis Vuitton
I couldn’t begin a post about luxurious luggage with anything other than this titanium Louis Vuitton. For the lovers of the famous LV monogram, it can’t get more high-end than this. This same suitcase is available in different materials (and prices) on the Louis Vuitton website.
Aluminum Carry-On Suitcase, Rimowa
Aluminum, TSA-approved locks, telescopic handles, Multiwheel® system
We are all aware that Rimowa is the most coveted luxury suitcase of our times. No respectable Instagram influencer can touch their passports unless they are carrying a Rimowa. Is there a lot of marketing? Yes. But the German quality and tradition are a match. And here’s a fun fact to prove once and for all that the German suitcase deserves all its hype and more.
Before the brand was acquired by the luxury group LVMH (Dior, Don Pérignon, Guerlain, Louis Vuitton, etc), the group CEO and owner used Rimowa as his personal luggage. This says a lot coming from a man who could choose any suitcase on the Planet.
The aluminum suitcase goes under the name of Original, is easy to tell why, and is available in different colors and sizes, from compact to trunk. Besides the original, you can find ultra-light polycarbonate pieces and several high-quality travel accessories.
Small Carry-On Suitcase, Dior
Blue waterproof Dior Oblique technical jacquard, retractable telescopic handle, TSA-approved lock, Made in Italy
The love of designer monograms is so real that I wonder if it could be an aesthetic. This Dior carry-on is basically fan service for the brand’s groupies and will fit everything you need to keep you company in the cabin.
Full-grain leather Luxury carry-on Suitcase, Brunello Cucinelli
Full-Grain Calf Leather, Telescopic handle, top and side handles, Made in Italy
The super-rich and the billionaires love Brunello Cucinelli. It’s low-profile, exclusive, and not mainstream.
It’s the case for this unique leather carry-on with four spinning wheels and a back snap fastening sleeve.
Savoy GG Supreme canvas carry-on, Gucci
Supreme canvas. 360 wheels, telescope handles, two compartments
I don’t think we can add more Gucci symbols in a suitcase than we have here. The GG Supreme canvas is inspired by the iconic 1930’s design and is the show-off carry-on you’re looking for.
Luxury Checked Suitcase Peanuts Collab, Globe-Trotter
Vulcanized fibreboard, Made in Britain
Why have a neutral suitcase when you can have this unique collaboration between Globe-Trotter and Peanuts?
If the stunning blue and red shell is already an eye-catcher, wait until you see the Snoopy lining. It is to dye for. Seriously, I am in love.
Of course, you can find British Globe-Trotter luxury suitcases in several neutral colors.
19 Degree Titanium International Carry-On, Tumi
Titanium, Three-stage telescoping handle, Four dual spinning wheels, Two TSA-integrated combination locks
If you care more about a regal looking life-long lasting titanium shell than you do about designer monograms, you can save over $10,000 and get the Tumi instead of the Louis Vuitton.
In case you don’t care about titanium, Tumi also has luxury suitcases in aluminum.
Spinner 76 Aluminium Suitcase, FPM Milano
Aluminum, Top and side handles, telescopic handle, Japanese built 4 wheels, Made in Italy
Organization-wise, the FPM Milano is one of my favorites because I am obsessed with decluttered luggage. The two internal dividers with leather straps and the zipped pocket in this luxury suitcase have my organized heart.
It’s available in different sizes and colors.
FPM Milano is also responsible for manufacturing Gucci’s aluminum suitcases.
Luxury Weekenders & Duffle Bags
Large Intrecciato Leather Duffle Bag, Bottega Veneta
Genuine Leather, Made in Italy
Oh my! This intrecciato weave weekender is an Italian work of art. It’s luxuriously chic and luxurious, and it screams expensive in every language, no matter where you are in the World. Wow.
Black & Cognac Eco Scotchgrain Duffle Bag, Mulberry
Printed Eco Scotchgrain & Flat Calf
Going on a sustainable path, this Mulberry Weekender is a classic with an eco twist. Very modern. The Scotch grain fabric is made of recombined bio-plastic cereal on the outside and has a brushed leather interior.
It’s available in different colors.
Check Leather Weekender, Burberry
The classic Burberry check is easily recognizable from afar. This duffle bag carries the most out of the timeless poise and luxury of the British Maison.
You can personalize it at the Burberry website with up to 3 letters. So chic!
Odyssee Terre Duffle bag, Hermés
Bivouac Ripstop canvas and Spad leather
Unlike the Birkin, you don’t need a waitlist to call this Hermés yours. This beautiful duffle bag can comfort you on long weekends as you wait for your turn in line. And it’s way more affordable (or less expensive) than its famous cousin.
Jokes aside, this luxurious duffle bag takes inspiration from traditional waxed canvas seabag. It’s made in France, of course, out of Bivouac Ripstop canvas and Spad leather. It’s available in 3 different colors.
