It is perhaps my long-standing love of travel – or travel as a romantic notion that makes me adore the Lugano luggage Collection at JCrew. I've never been too impressed by heavily monogrammed handbags or luggage. I always prefer style over status. Which is also why I love the minimal and timeless look of this line. It brings to mind steam trunks, travel by train or ship in old 40s films. Back when people traveled in handsome, well-tailored clothes, shined shoes and men were gentlemen.
I'd love nothing more right now than to take this bag (directly below) and get on a plane to Paris. Who's in?
