Luggage for summer trips

4 July 2023

With the school summer holidays about to begin, or already in full swing in some part of Europe, we thought we would take a little look at luxury luggage. The weeks before holiday season is a good time to reach into the loft or garage and assess the state of your suitcase or overnight bag. Most importantly, ask yourself if your luggage is still secure and, therefore, fit for purpose. Secondly, consider if you still like it! In fact, ask yourself if you are proud of it?

Lovely luggage is a treat. It’s not something everyone prioritises but if someone gave you a super-smart carry-on bag or weekender case, you would be really grateful. So why don’t we pay our luggage a bit more attention when it gives us so much joy?

In response to this notion, we are throwing the limelight on our top three rather fine luggage pieces to get you in the mood for the summer season or, indeed, your next work trip.

Let’s start with the Dorchester II holdall. It’s like the spectator shoes of luggage with its blend of premium canvas and leather trim. It has a roomy interior with a separate zipped compartment for shoes (of course). This has French Riviera chic written all over it!  

More robust but no less handsome is the Bovey holdall. Made entirely from brandy calf leather, this would make a great bag for a weekend jolly or a business trip. Again, roomy on the inside with two large pockets, it also features handles that can be fastened together, plus a strap for to give you a hands-free option.

If you prefer to wheel your luggage rather then carry it, may we suggest the new Gladstone? This is a super-smart canvas and leather flight bag that can be pulled along towards the gate but also has handles so you can also quickly grab it off the carousel! There is a backpack, suit carrier and washbag in this range too if you like to match your luggage.

We think you will agree that these are bags to be proud of, whether you are nipping off for a city break, on a work trip, enjoying a weekend away in the UK or anywhere else for that matter. If you want to get in the holiday mood, or want to give someone a real treat, then why don’t you consider a smart piece of luggage? Bagsie the Bovey!
