We always need to look our best, no matter whether we’re heading out to a business meeting, strolling in the street, or traveling across continents. Ranging from the highly luxurious craftsmanship of the Hartmann 7R Master, to the minimalistic chic of Samsonite’s Divine collection, these are some of the offerings to look out for, should you wish to find something to take on the go.

Hartmann 7R Master

Hartmann 7R Master - Quartz (1)

This is what happens when you combine more than a century’s worth of design and crafting heritage with the flair of the now. The 7R Master just shouts Classic, with its fine aluminum outer case and beautiful contouring. Most of the work making this is done up by skilled master artisans manually and precisely – ensuring superb quality for every single piece. Depending on your tastes, you can either choose a finish in Quartz or Rose Gold.

Price: $1,650 – $2,050

Samsonite Octolite

Samsonite Octolite (2)

For those who want a more modest fare with the same ultra-modern features, just turn to the Samsonite Octolite. It’s not only light and durable, but it’s built in the tasteful form of a bold box with rounded corners. All this ensures strength, while maximizing volume. Furthermore, the Octolite features details and functions aimed at easing the frustrations that usually come with such long trips such as an integrated carry handle, built-in address tag, and fixed combination lock.

Price: $480 – 640 (subject to changes)

Lipault Original Plume

Lipault Original Plume Spinner 55 - Antique Pink

Less for cross continental flight, and more for quick walk-arounds in urban cityscapes, the Original Plume Collection ensures that you’ll stand out in a fashionably bright way. The soft hues of antique pink and dark lavender, mixed with the durable nylon fabric, will quickly make you the envy of the streets. The Plume comes available in three sizes, 55cm, 65cm, and 72cm.

Price: $359 – 399

Samsonite The Divine Collection

Samsonite DIVINE Laptop Briefcase S


The Divine business collection is for those style-mavens who want to stay effortlessly chic even while traveling the long way to business meetings. These laptop bags/backpacks feature dual-tone color blocking leading to an eye-catching contrast that makes it easily distinguishable from a crowd. Nylon ensures a slim, streamlined look, while additional features, like a soft leather bail handle and smart sleeves (allowing the bag to be slid on to a spinner for easier mobility) make things convenient for the mobile professional.
