Montblanc's latest line of luggages are sleek and travel-friendly as they come
The urban explorer
To many avid travellers giddy with wanderlust, the decision of choosing a luggage can be something easily settled without much of a thought. It doesn't matter what colour, how heavy or lightweight it is — they are merely boxes to be replaced anyway.
But to the discerning modern-day jetsetter, everything matters in the equation. And here's where Montblanc's latest line of luggages — #MY4810 swivel steadily into the picture. Crafted in Italy, and dedicated to meet the needs of urban explorers and intrepid globetrotters, the new series check the boxes of durability, sleek modern design and trusty performance made to go the distance.
Decked in five different sizes, to the same black aesthetic (pairing effortlessly with your airport fashion separates), the range includes a compact Pilot Case with two wheels, a four wheel Cabin Trolley (either with or without a front pocket where you can fit your power bank and other gadgets), and for longer hauls — a Medium Small and Medium Large Trolley.
All of which are backed by lightweight polycarbonate and fine leather trimming. Wheels are Japanese-made, ball-bearing; and more importantly, constructed with a 360° rotation, which ensures exceptionally smooth motion while gallivanting around. Thanks to its German-constructed multi-stop bar, you may adjust the bar to your ideal height with complete precision. Inside, the trolley is also fitted with laptop compartments, zipped pockets and other organisational features to keep your essentials snuggly tucked and strapped in for take off. At the recent Pitti Uomo in Florence, the brand introduced their new collection by transforming Limonaia Corsini, a historical spot into an urban hub decked with graffiti artists, DJs and skateboarders.
You'll find the signature Montblanc "M" on the front panel; of course not without a personalisation option, within the leather insert on the side to display one's initials. You won't have to lose sleep over losing your luggage on the conveyor belt. After all, not all blacks were made equal. Above everything else, you may secure your luggage safely with its embedded TSA lock.
Alongside the trolley entourage, make sure to have your red eye or flight essentials close, organised impeccably in the handy bags from My Montblanc Nightflight, which happens to be the maison's extensive line of leather goods. According to every individual's needs, take your pick from the all-emcompassing travel bag that fits your tech, documents, stationary etc, the wash bag booted with a hanger, as well as a mini size dedicated to hold your liquids. Pending our next getaway, we'll have one of each, please and thank you.
