The Best Luxury Luggage for Summer Travel

Fiona Lee   |   25-05-2022

Summer is fast approaching and with that comes vacation season! We round up the best in luxury suitcases that are destined for travel.


We’ve all been there… sat on top of our case trying to squash everything in and zip it up, hoping we aren’t over the baggage allowance! When going on vacation, escaping from the humid desert heat to cooler climates, it’s an all-important task hunting down the right case for the job. Whether it’s a trendy cabin roll-on with personalised initials or a large cabin case with a sturdy zip and lock, we’ve got you covered on an all basis.

We’ve found just the right balance between stylish and sturdy, and all available here in the UAE, in our round-up of the best luxury luggage brands.



Louis Vuitton

The first ever Louis Vuitton bag was made for travel and came in the form of a large trunk. Ever since it was introduced in 1858, Louis Vuitton has been providing travel essentials ever since. The brand has, quite possibly, the largest selection of luxury travel products and each piece features its signature monograms. Of course, we see different sized suitcases in many colours, but there is also the option of adding packing cubes, cosmetic pouches, passport covers, perfume cases, dog carriers, and even golf club bags to the cart. Whichever luggage item you decide to purchase, you are sure to travel in style.

With just one look at these travel cases, you just know your holiday belongs are going to be safely transported to your destination, without a scratch or bump in sight. FPM’s collection of hard-shell travel cases is surely made for the job. Made from aluminium, they are extremely tough and durable, but this material also makes them light enough to carry. The hard-shell case comes in a range of designs and sizes, featuring leather handles for comfort, four wheels for an easy glide and a TSA approved lock. Our favourite is the ‘Bank S Spinner 68’ in moonlight silver.
