Summer’s Best Traveling Bags That are Chic and Practical


Airport security is always fight-or-flight, and with so many places to go, carry your traveling bags with style and comfort, from Louis Vuitton to Rimowa

Traveling can be a comedy of errors where we star as the clumsiest performers. We’ve all been there, juggling our sanity along with boarding passes, shoes, and the toiletry bags we swear we packed but vanish on arrival. Delayed flights? Check. Forgetting half the things we meant to bring? Double check. With this detour of forgetfulness and airborne scams, one hero deserves a standing ovation: the traveling bag. It carries our odds and ends with loyalty. Let’s unpack our mishaps and adventures with summer’s best luggage and travel bags.

Louis Vuitton

Conceived for the jetsetter, Louis Vuitton introduces its Flight Mode collection for Summer 2024. This collection revolves around a vibrant motif, Élysée Palace, defined by overlaid vintage-style travel patches emblematic of the Maison’s heritage. Try for the new Side Trunk with Élysée Palace Hotel stamps that appear directly on the Monogram canvas. Alternatively, go for the small Blossom bag in a refreshing shade of mineral blue.


Warmer weather, vibrant color; it balances out. The Gucci Lido collection captures easygoing mornings under the sun and the refreshing splash of an afternoon swim. Opt for the new GG canvas in a tote bag in blue or go for quirk in the Moon Side bag for those lunar-lit moments.


Going on a safari? Play on all fields, crocodile-style. Go for the mini version of the Lora purse, perfect for carrying your essentials. Or choose the practical and lightweight solution of the Summer Pack Laptop Pocket Canvas Tote, ideal for keeping your belongings organized on the go. 


Sipping drinks in Saint-Tropez is always a good idea. Longchamp supports the spirit of freedom, laughter in the sunshine, and effortless dressing, and their latest collection is no exception. Embrace the carefree vibes with the Le Pliage Xtra S Crossbody Bag, perfect for strolling along the promenade or exploring charming streets. Alternatively, opt for the La Pliage Filet Mesh bag, a chic companion for carrying your essentials while playing with coastal charm.

Bottega Veneta

Andiamo! The call to adventure echoes in the name itself, translating to “let’s go” in Italian. Introduced in 2023, the Bottega Veneta Andiamo bag carries on with a blend of washed Bristol calfskin and canvas. Its distinctive brass metal knot embellishes and secures the bag’s braided straps, offering versatility to wear it over the shoulder or across the body. Let’s go, but whatever you do, don’t let go of that Bottega.


When it comes to traveling, your choice of luggage is paramount, so entrust with Rimowa. Introducing their Mint and Papaya collection, featuring pastel green and orange hues that are as visually appealing as they are deliciously enticing. Carry the RIMOWA Signature Duffle Bag in invigorating Mint green, offering travelers a lightweight and contemporary companion for both daily excursions and long-haul adventures. And for those check-in moments, the RIMOWA Essential suitcase stands as a reliable and lightweight option for your journeys ahead. 

When we’re chasing the sun or chasing our dreams, our adventures should be accompanied by the perfect traveling bag, guaranteeing that every moment is met with both style and comfort. Flight mode on—it’s time to soar into summer with our trusted luggage in tow. Just don’t forget your passports.
