If you're the type to plan all your travel OOTDs down to the very last hair, then you know how difficult it is to properly pack more than one signature handbag to go with your looks. Run the risk of ruining their shape or creasing that expensive leather? Nope, nope, nope. May as well just bring one (likely in a no-fail neutral) and hope it pairs with everything.
Quit playing safe! Here, we've rounded up five classic, luggage-friendly designer purses that are—yes way!—foldable and ready to be your jetsetting companions for life.
The very first completely new bag Jonathan Anderson designed for Loewe has fast become iconic. With its innovative cuboid shape, extreme tacility, and maximum utility, volume is created via skillful, precise cutting. Get the name yet? The Puzzle can be worn a multitude of different ways, from clutch to shoulder bag, plus it folds completely flat.
Louis Vuitton Speedy
Now this is true timelessness. First introduced in 1930 as the Express (in homage to the era's travel revolution and LV's heritage trunks), it was originally only available in the 30 size. Fun fact: We have none other than Audrey Hepburn to thank for the smaller 25, as in 1959 she requested for the label to make her a mini version of the Keepall duffel.
The Saint-Leger is a style chameleon that effortlessly transforms to suit your itinerary for the day. A soft briefcase, a backpack, or an entirely foldable extra piece of luggage all wrapped into one, it's ingenious, practical, and light as a feather. After all, Goyard's versatility has been legendary since 1853!
A very new albeit very welcome addition to this list is Chanel's 31, which made its debut on the famed French house's Fall/Winter 2018 runway. Based on an archival shape, it can be styled three ways: hand-carried by the tote's double top handles, on the shoulder by its detachable double straps, or folded over like a day clutch. Adorable.
Longchamp Le Pliage
But of course! Shoppable in a myriad of sizes, colors, and even a zany assortment of limited-edition prints, the Le Pliage is an unrivaled must in every constant traveler's collection. Tuck it into your suitcase on the way to your destination, then fill it up with trinkets and souvenirs to easily handcarry back home. A piece you'll love and depend on forever.
