We Love This: Weekenders
By Lena Hunter | Press photos
Everyone needs a trusty carry-all that’s large enough to live out of for a week or so, but small enough to make it past the beady-eyed hand-luggage attendants at the airport. It’s a fine line to tread. It places unique demands on your packing style – which must be ruthlessly selective – and on your bag of choice. It should be streamlined, deceptively spacious, comfortable… and chic, obviously. With a hectic month of travel on the horizon for many, we’ve picked out our favourite weekenders that tick the boxes and look good doing it.
Eli by By Malene Birger
Patterned with their signature flower motif, the faux leather Eli bag is one of the most lusted-after travel accessories to come out of the Danish design house By Malene Birger. The pattern is detailed without being overbearing, while the form is both elegant and practical. Scandinavian’s have a knack for understated luxury, don’t they? This beautiful travel companion features three interior compartments and one outer, for quick access to passports, wallets, phones and the like.
STURE by Sandqvist
Stockholm brand Sandqvist’s sleek and functional designs have made it a Scandi favourite, with a following far beyond Sweden’s borders. This spacious weekend bag, in an organic cotton and recycled polyester mix, has a 47-litre capacity – the ideal carry-on size. It features interior pockets for keeping your essentials organised and within reach, and a removable and adjustable shoulder strap.
Aneli Chess Novara by ADAX
The Aneli weekender by the Danish label ADAX features a classic chessboard motif and simple silhouette, giving a timeless look that ensures this carry-all will look fly, every time you fly. Inside, the bag features a lightweight lining, large zipper pocket and two large side pockets, while the stiff base makes it easy to get an overview of the content.
Fisherman’s Duffle Bag by 66°North
Icelandic label 66°North takes its name from the latitudinal line of the Arctic Circle which touches Súgandafjörður, where the company was founded in 1926. Today, the brand is synonymous with premium quality outerwear and adventure gear. This waterproof 60-litre duffle bag in 100 per cent nylon will safeguard your luggage in the wildest of weather. We love the Sunset Red version – a nod to the brand’s roots in fishermen’s clothing production.
Weekend Bag by RAINS
This Weekend Bag is Danish label RAINS’ interpretation of a contemporary overnight bag, cut from their signature waterproof PU-coated fabric. This essential design features a single main compartment, webbed carry handles, a detachable shoulder strap and adjustable lock slider buckles on the sides.
