Talk about luggage loyalty! Here’s Cameron Diaz at LAX with a selection of woven Bottega Veneta bags perfect for a stylish getaway. I’m not normally a huge fan of matchy-matchy accessories, but her combo of tan and brown totes and rolling luggage looks effortless and chic without feeling overdone. While this style of hand woven Bottega bag is definitely pricey, they are extremely well-made and very durable. Plus, they have a timeless appeal that will stay with you for the long haul.
Luckily, we have quite a few pieces at generous discounts off of retail. If you need a carry-on, I particularly like this fab tan ombre tote or this white Napa Roma tote. But be sure to check out our whole selection of Bottega Veneta — these are definitely bags that will stay in your collection forever.

This just-launched Bottega Veneta suitcase is making the blog rounds today, and it’s no surprise that people are interested. Made from soft-finished matte black alligator, priced at $53,000, and named Nero, this is not just your average piece of luggage. Besides just looking really, really pretty, this case has every upgrade you can think of, including locks, black alligator handles, a removable garment bag and burnished metal hardware.
While luxe luggage can be a pricey purchase, these pieces are really made to last. Exotic skins, if treated properly, can outlast any modern materials. Want to peruse some pre-owned options? Try our selection of suitcases, carry-ons and attaches, some in crocodile, ostrich or even alligator. If you’re partial to vintage and like the Bottega Veneta, try either this Hermes black crocodile briefcase or this Gucci brown crocodile briefcase for a similar look.
I’m all for traveling in style, but do you think Jessica Simpson has taken it too far with not one, not two, but three pieces of Louis Vuitton luggage at LAX? Obviously she is brand loyal, but the multi-pattern logo bags make a statement that might be a little too aggressive for my tastes.
In my opinion, a better way to go would be with a classic LV roller bag paired with this Hermes Victoria Toile Clemence leather overnight bag. This combo is understated but still says luxury in a big way.
Or, mix it up and go with a logo bag and a solid carry-on. The Louis Vuitton white multicolore Keepall 45 is tons of fun, and goes perfectly with this decadent Salvatore Ferragamo rare off-white ostrich rolling carry-on bag.
