How do you choose the best suitcase for year-round travel without sacrificing style and elegance? Icon-Icon has put together the best suitcases for summer 2022 – for use, in fact, all year round!
SPECIAL Suitcases : beautiful, luxurious and useful suitcases
After nearly two years of narrowing the field of exploration, the summer of 2022 marks the return of premium travel. Around the world or in Europe, as societies open up and travel picks up, you need a suitcase that is infallibly luxurious. For as wonderful as travel is, it can also be a source of discomfort. So, to combine style, practicality and luxury, Icon-Icon has selected the infallible suitcases that have long been recognised as such.
Starting with the most mythical – the Louis Vuitton suitcase. The maharajas and kings of the Orient have been the unofficial ambassadors of the Louis Vuitton suitcase. Since then, top designers from Marc Jacobs to Virgil Abloh have put their pop and contemporary vision on what remains arguably the most sought-after suitcase!
Great travellers know that Louis Vuitton has the power to create a unique object to accompany them on their adventures. In 1905, the House created a trunk bed for Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza’s expedition to the Congo, in 1962, a tea-case for the Maharaja of Baroda and in 1939, an office trunk for King Farouk of Egypt. The cabin version of the Horizon 55 premium suitcase carries this tradition with it!
Another big name in luxury luggage is Rimowa! Without doubt the most iconic of luggage, and the most chic of suitcases. The Rimowa suitcase is a concentrate of savoir-faire of the company founded in 1898. It has been made of this emblematic aluminium since the 1930s… Since a fire burnt down most of the materials used by Rimowa, leaving only aluminium.
Infallible, luxurious and chic as can be!
Created in collaboration with Dior’s artistic director Kim Jones, the Dior and Rimowa suitcase is another version of this icon… The fruit of the meeting of two exceptional skills. Here is a piece of luggage designed for the frequent traveller, and made from Rimowa’s iconic lightweight and durable aluminium.
Developed as a fashion, luxury and eminently practical suitcase – the Fendi and Rimowa suitcase is also covered with the Fendi logo. That is the Fun Fur, designed in the 1960s by Karl Lagerfeld!
The remarkable savoir-faire of Goyard, the oldest Parisian leather goods house, dating back 200 years, is reflected in the exquisite luxury of this trunk. A piece cut from the house’s emblematic canvas, the Goyardine.
Gucci has been a house that has created luggage and leather goods that have paved the way for exquisite and flawless luxury. Founded in 1921, Gucci is above all a house that has made luggage and leather goods the spearhead of exquisite and impeccable luxury. This Supreme GG suitcase is all the more iconic because it is covered with the mythical monogram – the double G with the initials of founder Guccio Gucci…
Do you want a vintage-looking suitcase for a contemporary mechanism? The Starlet is a wonderfully chic and practical piece of luggage! Stamped with the Steamline Luggage know-how, a know-how that since 2005 has been reinjecting a high dose of elegance into modern travel… This suitcase opens up a new art of travel.
Technicality, magnified materials and suitcases designed for long journeys – this Tumi suitcase is the quintessence of the know-how of the company which, in the 1980s, reinvented luxury luggage around the innovative Nylon “FXT” …. Allowing the creation of luxurious, chic and light luggage.
An updated version of the iconic S.C. Holdall, Bennett reintroduces the functional perfection of the S.C. Holdall – the cylindrical tote that hides a suit carrier…
A suitcase that reflects the expertise of the Hartmann company, founded in 1877, it is cut from sublime leather – the beautiful meets the practical in this piece designed to meet the ever-changing needs of travel.
The art of leather at its best in this case from Maxwell Scott – a company founded in 2002 but which has in its DNA the desire to put the taste of work and exquisite leatherwork at the heart of sublime and practical pieces!
This selection continues with the Samsonite Lite box, probably the most classic of all suitcases. But here it is in a more luxurious aluminium version… With a heritage of more than 110 years, Samsonite has created a contemporary piece, rich in century-old savoir-faire !
Introduced in 2020, this new Samsonite collection offers high-performance suitcases made from a new, exclusive material that provides remarkable strength and lightness – and, to top it all off, the suitcase returns to its original shape in case of impact!
The jet-set destination inspires a chic and practical suitcase – here Delsey offers a suitcase that says Saint Tropez. Quiet, made of noble materials, and eminently well thought out.
Last May, Delsey introduced a premium line in collaboration with Roland Garros. This year, Delsey Paris is reinventing its no less emblematic luggage around the very special colour of clay. Since 1946, Delsey Paris has been at the forefront of French luggage storage — reliable, practical and design.
An expertise that, since the 1970s, imposes the trolley system on its competitors. So here are two emblems of the French art of living that meet around the icons of the house of Delsey Paris, and in particular the Châtelet Air 2.0 trolley suitcase. Ideal for travelling throughout the summer of 2022!
