There were days when the British aristocracy traveled with large trunks to carry their possessions as they traveled to the colonies in India, etc. Today, these trunks and heavy luggage sets are probably mostly used to decorate our homes. The set above is a Ralph Lauren edition, and though I show bias toward Mr. Lauren, I think he has designed some of the most beautiful luggage sets I have ever seen. If one is lucky enough to find such a treasure, I would suggest purchasing it immediately. Travel in style or decorate in style, it is your choice.
