Designer luggage is the perfect opportunity to merge function, style and personality. From top of the line, expensive pieces, to moderately priced, middle-of-the-road pieces, the brand characterizes the product. Most bags, regardless of price or name, offer the same basic functional features like multiple interior and exterior compartments, rolling options and durable, waterproof materials. However, the differences are apparent when it comes to the fabric choices, color selection and attention to detail. Well-known names are synonymous with their features, design style and signature accents. One designer luggage company may be known for their timeless, classic style and superior craftsmanship, while another may represent flashy showmanship and logo emblazoned fabric. In addition, high-end companies typically offer more unique bags that ordinary brands do not offer, such as steamer trunks and hard shell cosmetic valises. Frequent travelers will instantly recognize their exclusive bags, suitcases and trucks in a sea of common luggage brands.
