A short jaunt or impromptu getaway – which we’re taking more often these days as the world reopens – calls for some stressful situations about what (or how much) to pack. Though a rolling luggage seems to be the obvious choice, we suggest a more compact and stylish alternative: the vintage-style hand-carry luggage or duffle bag.

Besides the fact that you can easily carry it onboard the plane any avoid any lost-in-transit meltdown, the style is practical for those random security checks. Another upside? Your bag will make a big airport fashion statement – cue paparazzi shots of Juliane Moore, Jodie Turner-Smith and Harry Styles waltzing into Venice Airport to attend the 79th Venice International Film Festival. In tow? A piece of hand-carry luggage.
Or how about the Gucci Valigeria campaign starring Ryan Gosling which sees the actor, screenwriter, director, and musician captured in a series of images lensed by Glen Luchford? Gosling is depicted in whimsical escapist settings – always with his GG Supreme canvas-festooned duffle bags and other iterations vintage-style luggage in tow. Now that’s fly.
