For the global traveler who lives a life of nomadic elegance, these timeless artisan pieces by Moncrief London are designed to be used and treasured for ever.
If you’re looking for chic luggage and travel accessories, things don’t come more stylish than these new pieces from British luxury brand Moncrief London. Under creative director Caroline Evans, Moncrief has come up with a collection of entirely hand-made carry-on luggage, for busy passengers who require compact and chic bags that don’t require lining up in a check-in queue.
Designed in Britain and handmade by an artisan family in Milan, each piece of Moncrief luggage has a unique quality and is made using the world’s finest leather and fabric. We love the luxurious look of these bags and the clever designs that allow you to carefully organise your belongings and fully utilize the cabin baggage allowance.
Our favourite is the alligator-printed trunk trolley (the only one larger than airline regulations) , with its nifty slide-out drawer featuring separate compartments for your lingerie, jewellery and other precious belongings.
The inaugural collection features a trunk trolley case with drawer, a detachable case trolley, a carry on case, weekend bags and iPad covers. Each piece is is made with a combination of age-old artisan skills and the finest hides.
Carefully hand-crafted using painstaking processes, each Moncrief bag can take several days or even weeks to make. Each skin has to be carefully inspected then cut by hand, ensuring only the best pieces are used, and up to four skins are required for a large bag. Next, the piping is hand rolled and takes many metres of high quality leather to create. To finish off the exposed edges of the bag, a highly skilled lacquering expert creates a perfect finish.
If you require a custom-made bag, Moncrief London offer a Bespoke Service on selected bags. Bags can be monogrammed, or your initials hand embroidered in metallic thread. You can also be created from a variety of exotic skins, which can be dyed to a custom colour.
Moncrief London luggage can be purchased at Harrods and Net a Porter.
