Luggage isn’t something that we (hope to) buy seasonally. Because of that, it’s worth taking the time to really do the hard work to research, and then to invest in one that can last at least half a decade. Although quality and stylish luggages are usually costly, in the long run, it always makes more financial sense to invest in a great piece than to have it replaced every year.

One important question we often get asked: “Won’t these beautiful luggages get ruined at the airport? Are you sure it’s ok to toss these expensive suitcases around?” In reality, there will always be wear and tear regardless of how durable the luggages are – the key is how these luggages look after each wear, and how long until they stop working or require repair.

If you’re look for a classy, stylish yet durable luggage that can last longer than the usual, check out these 3 brands that never disappoint. Dents and scuffs? Embrace it. These are the kind of brand that improves with age.

1. Globe Trotter

Handcrafted in English, the prestigious Globe Trotter is one of the top luggage brand favoured by stylish travellers and A-list fashion icons. Since 1897, the brand has been creating luxury luggage for clients such as Queen Elizabeth II, Sir Winston Churchill and Kate Moss.

The handmade luggage is light weight and extremely strong. You can even repair this luggage when you need to. Given its classic suitcase look and the high quality material used, the luggage will age well – and aging stylishly is one of the attraction that tugs the heartstring of fashion enthusiasts and the brand’s loyal fans.

2. Rimowa

Despite frequent collaboration with high-fashion brands and rising designers, Rimowa isn’t to be mistaken as just another hipster brand that’s “all looks, no substance”. Born in 1898, the German brand evolved from a classic trunk maker into a modern metal luggage company that has stood the test of time. In Japan, this brand is extremely popular.

Rimowa is known for it’s durability.

Founded in 1946, FPM is an Italian leather goods brand that forayed into the luxury luggage market since the introduction of their metal luggages. Note: their luggages might be a little on the heavy side.

The “Bank Collection” is especially popular as the luggages from the collection are made of 100% recycled aluminium (in other words, they’re indestructible.)
