All you have to do now is choose your destination and go.
Rimowa x Dior
Where do we start with the Rimowa x Dior collab? We don’t advise that you check-in your suitcase, for obvious reasons (scratches, dents, etc). Go for the ‘Cabin’ edition, that way you can keep an eye out on it and all eyes will be on you as you stroll through the airport. The Dior and Rimowa Cabin in gradient blue sees the Dior Oblique design, a signature motif of the iconic House dating back to 1967.
From being featured in songs, spotted on rappers and models, Goyard has longtime been a brand for the elite. If you didn’t know, the Parisian brand forgoes any advertising, e-commerce, and celebrity endorsement. By now, you will have seen the Goyard Saint Louis tote around town, but there’s a reason for that. The tote arrives in three sizes a PM (small), GM (large) and the XXL version. If you’re travelling for a longer period of time, the XXL version would be the one that we’d recommend. It features an extra-large-and-wide handle, a larger body, and a detachable pouch.
If you’re looking to elevate your airport look, look no further, the Louis Vuitton Horizon Soft Rolling luggage will definitely help with that. Sporting the signature LV monogram, each suitcase is made with durable handles and zippers and there’s also a bevy of colours for you to choose from.
