#FirstClassFriday: Bank by FPM suitcases
Hard on the outside, buttery smooth inside
Every traveller has a list of worries, but with Bank suitcases by Italian leather goods house, Fabbrica Pelletterie Milano (FPM), you'll be able to strike off worrying about your luggage.
Established in 1946, FPM has partnered up with research-based industrial designer, Marc Sadler, to create these incredibly slick and stylish trunks are made of 100% recycled aluminium. With the vision of designing a travel case that reflected an aeroplane — hard on the outside, but comforable on the inside — the suitcases feature a robust aluminium shell with rounded corners, complemented with plush tan leather straps and soft-shell linings; all made start to finish in Italy. Molto benne! And every aspect of your travel is thought of: From a zipped mesh pouch and divider for organised packing, down to the nitty gritty of securing your luggage with TSA combination locks for secure and easy access.
Nasty handling or turbulent winds have nothing on the solid aluminum shell, and the buttery Italian leather handles and interiors will add a touch of luxury to your travel escapades. The Bank by FPM collection demonstrates a harmonious combination of practicality and style, and, racking up massive points for pride of ownership, is a suitcase that you'll be proud to pull off any conveyor belt.
The Bank by FPM collection is now available on MrPorter.com
