Going somewhere this summer? I thought you might be...'tis the season, after all. You may have already booked those flights and reserved your Airbnbs for your next big adventure—which means the only thing left to do is pack your bags and get there. And what better way to get excited about packing (and your upcoming vacation) than putting all your travel essentials into the best designer luggage?

I already know you’re planning the best travel outfits for your next getaway—whether they’re for a weekend wedding or an international excursion. And if your outfits are already on point, your travel gear may as well be, too, no? Fortunately, if you’re due for a new suitcase, duffel, or weekender bag, I’ve got some suggestions.

Below, I’ve found the most stylish and functional designer suitcases and other luggage to invest in for your next handful of travel plans (and beyond). Not only do these high-end bags have room for your travel toiletry bags, but they’re also likely to last you years, if not decades—all while making your days en route feel like a true treat.

When it comes to luxury designer suitcases, it doesn't get more iconic than Rimowa. Most notable for its lightweight aluminum suitcases (which you may recognize from Emily in Paris!) as well as its vertical lines and ultra-smooth 360-degree wheels, this suitcase is the real deal—and it’ll last you a lifetime. (P.S. If you prefer a non-aluminum style, the brand also makes its luggage in polycarbonate, in addition to hybrid suitcases.)

Another favorite for seasoned travelers is Tumi. While the brand makes a variety of quality luggage for any type of travel, this particular suitcase is not only cute (I mean, would you look at this shade of lilac?!), but it also has 360-degree spinner wheels and features a recycled polycarbonate shell. Talk about a good investment.

Customer review: "I loved the size and the color so much that I ordered another piece. My friends all love the color. People with old Tumi luggage are just amazed at how easily it rolls and the color."

Another family that knows the definition of luxury? The Roys. HBO's Succession featured a suitcase from luggage label Carl Friedrik, and we already know: if it's good enough for the Roys, it's good enough for us.

Customer review: "A great looking bag, easy to pack and lightweight enough to carry through the airport. It's holding its shape well, and should be a great investment piece for travel for many years."

When you’re traveling, everything's Gucci, right? With this little carry-on (which is adorably labeled as a trolley), it sure will be. This archival design originated in the 1930s, so you know it's a classic. Of course, it's gained some modern touches since it first debuted, like 360-degree spinner wheels and a retractable handle, for instance.

Aviator Carry-On Plus


Ah yes, the luggage brand that took the world by storm. You may know (and adore) Away for its sleek, simple, and more accessible polycarbonate suitcases, but if you want to really up your travel game, the brand also has an aluminum take on its signature luggage, which comes in rose gold, silver, and black. Still, the same suitcase you know the brand for, but tough enough to handle just about anything.

Customer review: "What's not to say about this suitcase! Extremely durable, smooth as glass, stylish, and eye-catching. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Thank you Away for making such amazing products."

The Large: Aluminum Edition


How often do you have the opportunity to travel with a trunk—and a sleek one, at that? July's glazed polycarbonate trunk features twin hatch locks, 360-degree spinner wheels, and a hidden laundry bag, among other things. Want to make it extra special? You can personalize it with your initials (or better yet, the face of your pet!).

Customer review: "I’m obsessing with this classic trunk style! I bought this for my trip to St Lucia and it fits everything!! The wheels are extremely smooth, love the different handle heights (great for tall people like me!) and the color is beautiful! I will definitely buy more luggage from July."
