These are the luggages to have the next time you're up 30,000 feet in the air

Following the aviation extravaganza that was the Chanel SS16 show, here's the first look at the travel accessories you can expect to find in stores come March. It's no secret that Karl Lagerfeld was inspired by the art of travel this season, and jetsetters and collectors alike can anticipate checking in and taking on board luggage from the French house. 

Chanel suitcase and bags spring summer 2016

Functioning as a stylish carry-on handbag or a 24 hour carry all, pack up your globetrotter's essentials in the 11.12 bag that manifests in XXL sizes designed with Chanel's classic tweed in mind. Looking to set yourself apart from even the most seasoned travellers? Pick the fun-loving versions featuring an interpretation of the airplane motif in rhinestones instead. But, truly up your game when it comes to travel accessories with their leather suitcases that take on the iconic quilted and chevron patterns — score unparalled airport style points by hitting the tarmac with Chanel in tow. 

What's more, hold on to that wanderlust even with feet firmly planted on solid ground — the SS16 clutches mirror travel bags right down to the trolley handles and wheels. Hear a vacay calling? Make that a Chanel adventure you're about to embark on. 

The Chanel SS16 accessories will be available in boutiques come March 2016.
