Continuing Vee Travels’ gift guide series, this week features luxury carry-on bags that’ll make anyone very happy to receive as a present this holiday, but you’ll probably want to pick one or more of these up for yourself to bring along on your next flight or train ride.
Tumi – Alpha All In One Duffel
Bold use of white and orange are paired with the trendy camo, Tumi’s Alpha All In One Duffel lives up to its name with the functionality to split into four smaller bags. The three exterior compartments each detach from the main duffel and convert to a messenger/brief, a crossbody bag and a tote (which opens up from the section on the right below), leaving a slimmer and sleek carry-all to use on its own as desired. ($495, Tumi)
Mulberry – Small Clipper Leather-Trimmed Canvas Holdall
A small holdall, it makes up for size with its eye-catching blue canvas body. Trimmed with a brown resilient leather and two handles, the shoulder strap is of course detachable. ($950, MR PORTER)
Italian born and bred, Tod’s is best known for its excellent driving shoes. For the 2013-2014 Autumn/Winter collection, Tod’s man is said to be inspired by the interiors of contemporary gentlemen’s clubs, places of impeccable and timeless elegance. “Ideal for the contemporary man and his style: carefully studied, refined and cosmopolitan.”
In the collection below, you’ll find the timeless Gommino driving moccasins (which have a rounded shape crafted from hand-waxed leather), the semi-glossy leather Derby shoes with rubber sole, sunglasses with leather details, textured leather mini iPad case, pebbled leather wallets, and the traveler’s eye candy, the Petroleum blue leather bag and two-tone gray suede sneakers with ultralight rubber sole (pictured above).
