Needless to go around, the travel bag par excellence, the entry into the Olympus of the great classics is undoubtedly the Keepall of Louis Vuitton: not by chance is in the catalogs of the French maison from the 30s. The years in which the jet-set abandoned the heavy trunk for a more functional travel bag, ideal for relaxing – especially on weekends – in Deauville, Biarritz or Saint Tropez. A light bag, which contains everything (keep all), soft, with a comfortable zip along its entire length and the unmistakable Monogram or Damier canvas. It exists in different sizes 45, 50, 55, 60 liters and only the latter can not get into the cabin. Fantastic the red version designed by Supreme. Of course, keepalls are not cheap, not even second hand, but the alternatives are not lacking.

Among the novelties of Zara you can find the top case in black leather (99.95 €) of course with double handle and adjustable shoulder strap. Next, Urban Outfitters offers the Holdall bag version of Herschel Supply Co.

in the black version with handles and red side pocket (95 €). From Asos, instead, you can find the Ted Baker Newmex travel bag with gray rubberised exterior and contrasting yellow padlock (€ 245.99). In the navy blue version with white and red cross strip is Hackett London‘s Hurlingham Holdall: it is on Zalando (€ 209.99). Fifty liters of capacity and large logo on the front for the Superdry New Wave Lineman bag (€ 79.95). The Twill Weekender is the name given by Everlane to its travel bag proposed in different color variations (interesting the dark green version) and made in Vietnam by laboratories with ethical certification (98 $). On the other hand, the Bally travel bag is called Daffy: tubular shape and wide logoed handles (550 €). Mr Porter emphasizes the collaboration of Raf Simons and Eastpak from which the Vinyl-Trimmed Canvas Holdall model is completely black with many external pockets and chromed technical hooks (250 €). Made in Italy, the Armani Jeans travel bag proposed by Yoox in mélange blue (154 €) has three comfortable external pockets. The Big Pony bag in camouflage canvas (€ 229) with leather details and orange logo embroidered in the middle belongs to Polo Ralph Lauren. A triad of blue-red-green colors framed in yellow for the Tommy Jeans sack bag (€ 154.90). And if what you need is a travel bag for a weekend on a sailboat, then the choice can only be the Classic Duffel Bag by Helly Hansen (110 €) waterproof and wear-resistant. Also worthy of mention among the weekends is the blue canvas bag with leather details and reinforcements by Boggi Milano (270 €): it is made in Italy. If it is red, the color you just can not do without, maybe you have a chance to find some more specimens of the Supreme Large Duffle Bag (168 €) and the cost is much more popular than the printed LV version.
