Although Rimowa isn't as well-known of a label as Louis Vuitton, it's still under the same luxury conglomerate as the fashion label—LVMH
. That alone should tell you the levels of luxury and undeniably high quality that this brand provides. Though it has become a well-known label for modern luggage, Rimowa actually has a heritage that goes all the way back to the 1930s, becoming the first label to offer aluminum suitcases. Today, the brand is world-famous for its polycarbonate-covered bags and luggage, mostly covered in shimmering chrome and space-age tones. A good balance between fashion and function fit for luxury travel!

Yet the quality remains high, as proven by the products' sturdy exteriors and spacious insides. Not to mention the fabulous colors they come in, ranging from signature chocolate brown to more earthy tones like forest green or chestnut. Who wouldn't want to travel with such fineries?

The leading American designer label
for multiple generations now, Ralph Lauren's travel bags deserve a special mention on this list. Firstly, in terms of design, this brand is probably the most adventurous out of all of them. They don't just come in typical fine leather or sturdy suedes, but also in striking tartans, navy stripes, and even a few camouflage carry-ons to boot. The Ralph Lauren label has always stood for American fashion excellence and its most aesthetically pleasing travel bags all follow suit. But don't think that just because these luggage items look fabulous that they function any less. They're just as strong and sturdy as the rest of them!
