Alaïa Animal-Print Calf-Hair Travel Bag: First-Class Ticket

Alaïa Calf-Hair Travel Bag

If life’s about the journey, then doesn’t it stand to reason we need a great piece of luggage to accompany us? Here is the perfect gift for the ultimate travel snob (I’m talking about yours truly, if someone so desires to make a dream come true…ahem, Tech Snob Rich!). Azzedine Alaïa has outdone himself with this high-flying beauty. A carry-on bag in luxurious pony-hair topped with an exotic print wouldn’t be so decadent and delightful if you had to actually carry the bad boy. But on wheels, it’s breezy traveling with flair all the way.

I love the idea of flying with a large tote-style carry-on, rather than a traditional suitcase. Not only does it look cool, it makes it so much easier to get to your things, instead of having to lie the suitcase down, unzip the whole thing, and so on. This is a case where everything is perfect, done right from start to finish; except that pesky price is a bit daunting (especially for said husband who needs to get it for me!!!).
On Net-a-Porter for $6,785.

Pair with: Ensure the airport security process is as easy as your suitcase with Rochas’ slide-on slippers. Lime leather adds a punch to a simple style.
At Barneys New York for $525.
