6 of the best weekend bags

We’ve all been there, had a great time on holiday, gutted to be back to cold weather, stood at the baggage re-claim carousel and that cold, stark feeling dawns upon you of, where’s my luggage ? A couple of years ago, my luggage went missing so regularly, it became a running joke with friends and work colleagues, “Ohhh wonder where it’ll end up this time ? Haha”. This was normally greeted with a withering, “ha, yeah” or similar words to that effect, kinda, use your imagination.

So as holiday season rapidly approaches we thought we’d give you some inspiration for weekend bags, ideally luggage you can keep as hand luggage to prevent that nightmare scenario, of having to describe your missing bag to a person who really doesn’t care and looks at you unsympathetically, when you inform them, “It’s a black bag”.



You’ll never suffer the misfortune of picking up the wrong luggage again if you invest in this great piece from PRADA.
