Belles with Baggage

Broken zippers got you down? Feel the need to travel with duct tape? Perhaps this is the year you need to release all that old baggage and acquire some new.

Since we now must pay to check our bags, or alternatively haul them on the plane with us, they should at least put a little spring in our step from one destination to the next. Easy spotting and no more mix-ups at baggage claim will be a beautiful thing!

We talk about how to pack a suitcase a lot around here; (look, Jody Hanson can even pack for a whole month in one carry on suitcase), but even if you are as challenged as some of us are in this area, you can still look great while getting around the globe!

Even Mr. Loud from seat 8B, who is now yelling into his iPhone around the carousel, and suffers from the misguided belief that every black suitcase that comes flying through the chute is his, will be stunned into momentary silence, and make way for you. Available in several colors, including a nice neutral that may be perfect for any man in your life.

Designed by Brazilian artist and pop culture icon, Romero Britto, the pieces from this collection will inspire you to go wherever your heart desires. Often. We love pretty much all of the not just the flowers!

For women who prefer a soft, nylon fabric covered luggage option, this eye-catching set may be just the thing to make a stylish entrance and exit at various ports of call. The middle-sized bag has received recent raves as both an overnight bag and a carry-on.

Inspired by travel and exploration,  features the elegance and romance of yesteryear, combined with a very belle-like modern sensibility (please note discreet wheels and orange patent straps on this model). We think they would come in handy around the home too, like extra storage space and an apropos and obvious place to keep the brandy and a pair of snifters, if anybody still had those. These vintage-style beauties come in various styles and are available through select retailers and the Steamline Luggage website.

  1. heck yeah. this weekend I was with my daughters and we walked by a store window with a set of those Brittos. I didn’t notice them at 1st (my eyes rested on a pair of shoes) but they stopped 4 teenage girls in their tracks.
