The new luxury collection, created by Rolls- Royce Designer, Michael Bryden, consists of two Grand Tourer valises, three Long Weekender bags and one Garment Carrier. Carefully developed to highlight its two-tone finish, the collection complements the design principles of the Wraith itself and enables customers with the opportunity to customizetheir luggage to match the interior of their car. The six piece luggage collection is priced at $45,000.
The design of the luggage collection was inspired by insights from experts used to handling individuals’ luggage at some of the most respected hotels in the world. The interaction between guests and their belongings was observed and the counsel noticed that frequent and travelers rarely handle their own luggage; only one small bag is usually handled by the owner. Based on that, the company paid particular attention to the Long Weekender bag to suit the traveler’s lifestyle.
The Long Weekender bag features even weight distribution and a smooth finish on the handle. It is designed with discrete fastenings that magnetically dock, providing great resistance,but still durable and effortless to carry.
The Grand Tourer is equipped with strategically placed wheels, specially designed to provide a high level of stability and an effortless transfer from ground to luggage compartment. The Garment Carrier, a sleek and slim lined piece, has been designed specifically to hold fancy gowns or tuxedos. A black-tie friendly bag is the best definition for it.
The bags, inspired by the Wraith in design and structure, are easy to carry through airports or high-end hotels. he Spirit of Ecstasy, the flying lady figurine that has adorned each and every Rolls-Royce hood since 1911, is also present on each piece of luggage, elegantly placed on the exterior of each bag.
