Best Designer Luggage in 2022

I’m all about Designer Luggage these days! With borders opening worldwide, travel is more popular than ever. I was on the plane last week and there wasn’t an empty seat on the flight. It’s crazy what a difference a year can make, and how busy the airports are now. Forget about dusting off your old suitcases, now is the time to upgrade to new luggage.

Today, I’m excited to share with you my 5 favorite designer luggage worth investing in. Before we jump into the best designer suitcases, let’s first talk about is designer luggage even worth the price?

Is Designer Luggage worth the price?

You may be wondering is Designer luggage worth the price, or even why would I buy designer Luggage. These are both great questions! 

The idea of investing in designer luggage is that you will purchase one designer piece of luggage that will last a lifetime. Many designer luggage brands often guarantee their bags, especially if they get damaged. 

One reason I decided to purchase designer luggage was because of its chic design. In Paris, I had little closest space and when I purchased a designer suitcase, I wanted a piece that doubled as a piece of furniture. 

In my opinion, if you are going to get a designer suitcase, then I recommend it be a carry on one. That way, you can handle it with care yourself. 

The idea of the Checked designer suitcases scares me as it typically gets thrown around. With that being said, let’s go ahead and dive into the best luxury luggage in 2022.

Delsey Paris Luggage

One of my favorite suitcase brands is one I discovered while living in Paris called Delsey. Delsey suitcases have been around since 1946 and I definitely recommend investing in a Carry on Delsey suitcase. In fact, I love Delsey so much I got everyone one in my family one of their carry on pieces for their birthdays. 

One of the things I love about Delsey suitcases is that they are always coming up with new and cool collaborations. They have incredible features such as a break, anti thief lock, extra lined interior, silent-glide wheels and finally it’s so lightweight.

The Delsey comes in so many colors. I got my husband the Brown Suitcases and myself the White set… 

Do I recommend the white Delsey Châtelet Suitcase? I recommend the white Delsey in Carry on only. For a checked bag, unless you want to buy a cover for it to keep it clean, I recommend a darker color.

Louis Vuitton Luggage

The first designer piece of Luggage I ever fell in love with was the Louis Vuitton suitcases. The Louis Vuitton luggage set were the OG, aka the original designer luggage brand. Not only were they the first designer Luggage, they also revolutionized luggage. 

As Louis Vuitton luggage evolved over the year and became modernized for today’s travel, I can’t help but still be in love with the vintage pieces (Although not practical, but beautiful furniture pieces).

The Louis Vuitton Luggage set comes in the traditional Monogram LV print, Damier Ebene, Classic Black Leather and even has special edition pieces with a leather trim.

For Louis Vuitton luggage, I like to turn to the second hand market in order to find some great discounts!

Hermes Luggage

The next designer suitcase I recommend is from Hermes. Yes, you read that correctly, Hermes has luggage and suitcases available for sale! Are they expensive? Definitely! (Starting price for the Hermes luggage is €6700)

Hermes isn’t new to the travel game, in fact, many people use their Hermes Birkin size 35 and above to travel with. 

While the Hermes Luggage is certainly the most expensive designer luggage on the list, no doubt in my mind that it’s also the most luxurious. One of the things I love about the Hermes Luggage is how high quality it is and how the design is unstated.

If you have the budget for a Hermes suitcase, then I say go for it, it is such a gorgeous piece!

Goyard Luggage

Next on the list is another popular Parisian brand: Goyard. But did you know Goyard also makes luggage? Similar to Hermes, Goyard luggage is extremely expensive, yet uses high quality material and has a gorgeous design.

The price isn’t listed on their website, but I went to the secondhand market to see to find pricing ranging from 5k upwards to 22k. Needless to say, it is definitely an investment piece.  

What I love about the Goyard luggage is it uses the same design and canvas pattern that you will see on their handbags. This is certainly a great statement piece and addition to anyone looking to add designer luggage to their collection.

Tumi Titanium Suitcase

No designer luggage list would be complete without a Tumi Suitcase!

The Tumi 19 Degree Titanium International Carry-On is undoubtedly a designer suitcase worth investing in.

This suitcase is one of the most durable, high quality luggage, with a secure closure carry on bags on the market today.  

If you are looking for more of an affordable suitcase by Tumi then I also recommend the aluminum / aluminum shell. 

This American brand has been making high-end suitcases since their launch in 1975. Hands down, one of the best globe-trotter travel accessory.  

Recap on Best Designer Luggage Worth Investing in

The truth is, I love designer luggage, but only in a carry on form. As I mentioned above, checked luggage doesn’t receive the best treatment. However, with a carry on suitcase, you can place it in the cabin in the overhead compartment yourself.

I highly recommend if you decide to splurge on designer luggage than it’s the carry-on only. The best luggage brands worth investing in 2022 are: Delsey Suitcases, Louis Vuitton Carry on Luggage, Hermes Suitcases, Goyard luggage and finally Tumi luggage. 

I’d love to hear from you, do you love designer suitcases? Would you ever invest or splurge on a designer carry on?

Sincerely Petite in Paris,
