The general concept of travelling the world is a luxurious in itself. Jetting off to different countries regardless of the circumstances is something to be excited about. Whether it be a work trip, to see your long-distance lover, visiting a friend abroad, some self-discovery time, or exploring the unknown, escaping to places less familiar than home is something we all need to do at some point. So why not do it in style?
There's something about travel that merges with fashion and that bridge is luxury. Travelling in style falls under the "lifestyle" category that we all wish we were a part of. So for those of you with weak spots for luxury handbags but think showing up to the airport in sweatpants is remotely okay, please keep reading because 2 + 2 does not equal 5. If you're an extravagant Gucci lover with more Marmonts than years you've been alive but can't figure out how to transition your every day aesthetic to travel aesthetic then this one's for you. Check out our favourite luxury travel bags below:

The Goyard St Louis
Carry a little bit of Parisian chic with you whenever you board an airplane. The St Louis tote by Goyard is a timeless piece you'll have forever.

Owning a travel bag from the oldest French luggage brand is a necessity for any luxury lover. Versatile enough to be both a travel bag and an every day bag, the St. Louis tote is a well worthy addition to any luxury collection.
