When the average joe packs for a trip, there’s usually a blind grab into the nether regions of a closet, and whatever comes tumbling out will do just fine. But for those who have the means and interest to invest in quality luggage, the suitcase ante jumps considerably. And while there is the Old World fantasy of traveling with a 20-piece matching set, in reality the concert of synchronized leather can look a little too Price Is Right “Showcase Showdown” (“You could win a brand-new set of luggage!”). Just as you need not wear a single designer head to toe for a chic look, why would your luggage be any different? Switch it up. Bravely mix your pieces for a modern spin on the jet-set sophisticate.
