5 LUXE LUGGAGE BRANDS YOU NEED TO KNOW

back to list

As a hobby, traveling comes steeped in the luxe grandeur comprising oversized steamers, private jets, and even a cocktail or two. However, with today’s double speed, have-to-get-there-now attitude, the glamour of the mile-high club has gotten lost in the scuffle, and practicality has ushered in a drab wave of Samonsites fumbling down the baggage carousel.

At GrandLife we take the art of travel very seriously, and believe whether you are escaping to a destination hideaway or packing your double-breasted for a business trip, a degree of sophistication should always remain intact.

Tumi

If function is the forerunner on your list, Tumi is the go-to source for quality nylon two-wheelers that are virtually indestructible. The classic collection of durable luggage is mastered in perfection down to every screw for any escape artist who wants a streamlined basic that will endure the test of time.

Valextra

Spotlighting the experienced leather craft of Milan, Valextra is the Italian-made luggage and accessories brand with a quirky color palette of popping hues. Cradling a refined elegance, each carrier has a timeless silhouette that bleeds sophistication from its smooth leather.

Swaine Adeney Brigg

Trunks that look as if they should be carted onto the Queen Elizabeth rather than a Boeing 747, Swaine Adeney steamers evoke the feeling of old-world travel. Bursting with prestige, the trunks have been the luggage of choice for James Bond, and are each crafted from English bridle leather formed to a custom-made steel frame and finished with exquisite brass fixtures.

Globe-Trotter

Trusted by notables Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth II, this English brand crossbreeds a prestigious foundation of luxury luggage manufacturing since 1897 with a fresh, contemporary style. With recent collaborations rolling out from Gucci, Globe-Trotter is modernizing their classic trunks for the ultimate travel must-have in a vibrant range of colors.

Rimowa

One of the best travel companions, Rimowa luggage are the high-brow wheelers made in Germany that can be seen on Europe’s well-traveled jet-set. Sturdy and chic, these aluminum carriers are structurally designed with aviation technology for a unique case of superior quality and refined finesse.
