But before I jump into it, let’s first discuss how I came to discover the brand. A few years ago, I came across a suitcase brand called Delsey Paris. At the time of discovering the brand, I wasn’t in the market for a new suitcase. Fast-forward a year later, my suitcase broke and I needed a new set ASAP. As someone who has constantly traveled over the years for both fun and work, I needed a durable suitcase that would last for years without breaking down. 

I headed to the Delsey store and started talking to an employee, and this guy was showing me all the bells and whistles of this suitcase. And let me tell you, this guy was good. As I was in the market for a new pair of suitcases, I decided why not let’s give this French luggage brand a try. I purchased the Delsey Chatelet Luggage set in brown for my husband and one set in white for myself. But, Was the Delsey luggage worth the price?
