Our bags are a stylish yet functional travel solution.”

The pulsating pattern creates an optical effect that makes it appear to change shape depending on the angle.Part artwork, part chic accessory, the Bern clutch from Maison 203 was conceived as a 3D-printed sculpture, designed to evoke the bending roads of the Swiss capital after which it is named. Launched at the January 2017 edition of the Maison & Objet fair in Paris, the clutch bag is now available from Maison 203’s flagship store in Venice, Italy, and comes in metallic black, copper, and gold.

4. A robe for relaxing
Each of Robe de Voyage’s garments is unique—made with the softest cotton and individually screenprinted and assembled. Lightweight and versatile, the robes are easily packable. As senior designer at Lolita Lempicka, Jessica Linklater spent 10 years traveling between Paris and India and the Far East producing prêt-à-porter collections. During that time, she stayed in a lot of hotels—enough to grow bored with standard-issue dressing gowns. Inspired by a photograph of Lauren Bacall looking “effortlessly chic” in a gown as she had breakfast with Humphrey Bogart, she set about creating the perfect travel robe. The result is Robe de Voyage, handwoven garments that are lightweight, easy to pack, and casually chic. Seasoned traveler Linklater says her ultimate trip would be “a leisurely cruise along the Nile, with my family and a sprinkling of friends, in a Nour El Nil boat, followed by a relaxing spell in a desert retreat in Siwa.”

Danish designer Cecilie Manz has created a smooth, refined amplifier that is activated by a tap or a shake, rather than by conventional buttons or switches, and its slick design means that it can as easily slip into a pocket or bag as rest in the palm of your hand. With 360-degree sound dispersion, you’ll be able to craft the perfect soundtrack to your trip.
