The 10 Best new luggage

  • @SAMuston

1. John Lewis Value Hard Side

£75, johnlewis.com

The store's first foray into home-brand luggage has bag-handler-proof sides made of sturdy ABS plastic yet it's light to handle.

2. Samsonite X'ion³ Travel

£215, samsonite.co.uk

About the prettiest suitcase around, it has a patented "tent" construction that means your bag is never bulkier than it needs to be.


3. Muji Boston Bag

£35, muji.eu

Like all Muji's products this is stark and stylish. While it isn't the roomiest piece of luggage around, it's just right for weekend jaunts.


4. John Lewis Monaco Spinner

£119, johnlewis.com

Another nifty new case from the ever-reliable store. This one benefits from a four-wheel base and a handy, built-in combination lock.


5. Trunki

£40, trunki.co.uk

Help keep your little ones in the holiday mood with this Olympic-styled Trunki which large enough to fit in all your child's toys.


6. M&S Marcel Wanders

£79, marksandspencer.com

Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has turned his eye to luggage design. This bold silver and black wheelie case is a great workhorse.


7. Missoni for Bric

£325, style-passport.com

If you fancy being the envy of the departure lounge, you'll want to get your hands on this zip-close, Missoni-designed, mini holdall.


8. Antler Velvet Plum Liquis

£169, antler.co.uk

Antler's new one has a super-sturdy outer shell that stands up well to all the usual battering from the baggage handlers.


9. Rapha

£150, rapha.cc

You're not going to fit your entire summer holiday wardrobe into this bag. But if you want a cool, hardy bag, then this is for you.


10. The Carlton Tribe

£97, luggagehut.co.uk

It's all about lightweight comfiness with this padded material bag from Carlton's new range that comes in at a minuscule 2.2kg.
