Heavenly Holdalls & Luxury Luggage

All that talk of globetrotting in my recent post on tribal traveler chic has got me thinking (and dreaming) of heading off into the sunset on an exotic adventure…of going wild in the African heat (and even wilder I-Kat prints), of coming over all Lawrence of Arabia in a coral and turquoise Kenzo headscarf. Of languidly lounging in a pacific paradise sipping a cocktail in a sexy cutaway Agent Provocateur swimsuit and killer Louboutin’s sneaking a peek at the got-to-be-hot waiter over the top of a pair of Prada’s plexi shades (pink please). Of gliding through a busy Morroccan  market into a shimmering heat haze of spectacular sights and heady smells in an equally shimmery Oscar de la Renta maxi like some kind of exotic princess gone AWOL…

Okay, so it may all be fantasy…but reality has to start somewhere (aim for the stars and you might just reach the moon – depending on traffic…and that ruddy volcano). So, whether you’re planning a trip to the stars, taking a city break in Prague, pulling a long-weekender on the continent or just day tripping your nearest shopping mecca the first thing you are DEFINITELY going to need is a bag.


Hermes Birkin in Blue…ahh, the Birkin – holy grail of bag worshipers the world over (enough said?)

Celine Luggage Collection s/s 2010 by Phoebe Philo …with several different designs to choose from – including a blinding pillar box red version – this could be a real Birkin beater…

Erdem for Globe-Trotter 26″ suitcase…there’s just something über chic about an old-school suitcase and I LOVE the taxi cab yellow (and I have to say this is my absolute favourite…kooky Paddington Bear charm plus shout-out-loud statement colour?! Of course I’m sold!)

Day Tripper…

Goyard ‘Saint Louis’ Tote…waterproof Goyard-chevron print canvas, nifty purse attachment and it flat packs. Beach Hero.

Sportmax Cream Canvas and Brown Leather Rucksack

Topshop Tan Leather Rucksack

Yes, I had thought the rucksack would remain consigned to the annals of school yard history, instead they have become THE bag of the season…strangely they seem a lot cooler than I remember…
