Using a luggage trunk instead of the average suitcase is way classier. What better way to feel like Audrey Hepburn or Clark Gable? Priced at €2,950 ($3,210), the W1 Suitcase is from the mind of Barcelona-based designer Mauro Bianucci and manufactured by Bespoke Luggage. As the first big project for the new brand Wilkens, the carry-on hearkens back to the glamour days when travel was for the select few who could afford such a luxury. It’s made using a variety of materials depending on which case you choose—including fine leather, metal accents, suede interiors, and carbon fiber reinforcements—and can be embossed with your initials. Of course, since this is 2015 and no one wants to lug a trunk around, the W1 can be rolled on two wheels from its telescopic handle. Though a lot of color options are available, we’d definitely keep with classic earth tones, like light brown on dark.
The catch? Wilkens is using the crowd-funding method to get their products made—after all, why would they want to produce an item the public doesn't actually want? The W1 needs 200 pledges to get off the ground, so if you like it, get over there and put your name in the basket.
