Places to go, people to see... do it in style.
Alison Van Der Lande – The Tania overnighter
Alison van der Lande claims that all her bags are made in small, family-run Italian leather workshops that represent meticulous craftsmanship. The soft, supple leather provides unmatched style, while split internal pockets – one zipped for bulkier items and another for lipstick and a mobile phone or similar accessories – ensure the utmost functionality whatever the setting. Available in metallic-silver/champagne, white, and sky blue – and in cognac and navy.
Grays of London – Kings Road collection
Designed with the energetic and busy metropolitan traveller in mind, Grays’ Kings Road collection offers a variety of bags, led by the Luxury International Traveller and the Tote (pictured). Each is made from premium black canvas with black leather features and ivory leather trim. The Traveller boasts six pockets in addition to its roomy main compartment, while the Tote has a deep interior with four outer pockets.

Delsey – ‘Karat’ trolley case 70cm
Light at only 3.17kg yet incredibly durable, Delsey’s Karat case is built from 100% lightweight polycarbonate, with handles constructed from aircraft-grade aluminium. But this durability doesn‘t detract from its attractiveness – the ridged casing giving it modern styling – and functionality, with its fully lined, four-compartment interior allowing for maximum storage. In addition, its four sets of twin 360-degree wheels make moving a breeze.
Over the past 40 years, Somerset-based Mulberry has grown from a surprise lifestyle brand to the height of British accessory. Its latest product is a set of Scotchgrain luggage. Featuring a stylish, textured surface accented by smooth tan leather trim – described as Cognac in colour – the carry-on bag is perfect for weekend getaways. Available in Black-Cognac and Mole-Cognac.
