Travel in Style: A Curated Selection of luxury travel gear for luxury travel destinations

June 30, 2010

Sometimes, a perfectly good trip to luxury villas in the Maldives can be ruined when hotel concierges thumb their noses at your tattered and dented plastic composite suitcases. It’s time to exude some class with these beautiful travel cases.

Globe-Trotter Hand Made Luxury Luggage

Coming in a number 1 for our August Man Curated Selection, Globe-Trotter is a brand synonymous with classic British elegance. The definition of luxury luggage, these hand made beauties are well constructed yet lightweight. You’ll definitely turn heads with its stark aesthetics.

A combination of expertly put together Vulcan fibre, ash wood frame, cloth lining and leather trimming, the made in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, England works of art are built by experienced craftsmen. This is a product built on a promise that you do get what you pay for. In this instance, SGD 1000 buys you travel cases of superb quality and design. Customised initials? SGD 150 extra.

Dunhill Chassis Collection

Always a favourite with the team, Dunhill ties with Dunhill (keep reading) for second place on our Curated Selection. Dubbed “Chassis”, this collection features luxurious black leather holdalls and document bags in textured black leather. The embossed carbon fiber surfaces are scratch and water resistant. In true Dunhill style, you can also purchase carbon fiber embossed leather cufflinks, writing instruments and USB drives, talk about matching gear.

Dunhill Brushed Aluminum

Tied with its black leather carbon fibre brethren, we’re simply mesmerised by this series of polished aluminium trunks. Surprisingly lightweight, these symbols of luxury would have taken first place if not for our doubts on the scratch and scuff resistance. Let’s face it, airport baggage handlers are not the most gentle of individuals.

Louis Vuitton Travel Collection

Though it enters third on our Curated Selection, the LV Alzer 60 is practically a travel staple with the team. LV emblems abound in signature LV style. Spacious at 23.6” x 16.5” x 8.6”, the monogram canvas is quite scratch resistant. Reinforced rivets and gold brass corners add a touch of gorgeous distinction. The rounded white leather handles? Classic. The LV Damier graphite canvas Grimaud adds a touch of gravitas for the gentleman traveller. Lightweight and supple, it’s perfect for quick business trips to global cities. Practical and spacious, it’s a great travel companion.
