Whether you’re headed on a trip near or far, there’s always one thing in common: you need durable luggage to carry all of your stuff. Now this might not be the best guide if you’re planning a backpack or wilderness camping trip but these pieces have served me well for all sorts of other trips year round.
Diane von Furstenberg’s vintage inspired “Adieu Hardside Spinner Luggage” brings old-school travel elegance to modern practical traveling pieces. With four wheels that rotate and spin the suitcase will spiral in every direction you go.
The trunks are available in three sizes: carry on, 24″ and 28″ to accommodate everything from quick trips to long excursions and color options include black/caramel. Shop here
