Travel in style with the new Reiss and SteamLine Luggage capsule collection collaboration. Erma Bombeck once famously said, “There is nothing more miserable in the world than to arrive in paradise and look like your passport photo!” Despite the truth in her words, it’s something we’re all guilty of, arriving in a tropical haven or a sprawling metropolis and looking like your typical travelling Brit – overwhelmed, underdressed and with those horrible rainbow strap things covering our bags in an attempt to make them distinguishable on the carousel (when in fact everyone else had the same idea). Reiss and SteamLine are here to save you. From Spring next year you will be able to purchase the Carry-On and Stowaway pieces (£375 and £395 respectively). Inspired by vintage glamour when the journey itself was an adventure not an unfortunate necessity, the pieces are made from recycled wood, canvas and vegan leather, with clean and brushed metal hardware. You get all the old-school style with the modern advantages, lightweight, silent wheels and extendable handles. From March 2015, the pieces will be available from selected Reiss stores and from both SteamLine and Reiss’ online stores.
