It is that time of the year when, with the Easter Holidays and Spring breaks happening in the UK and around the world, thoughts turn to Spring getaways. Often just a long weekend in a country cottage, returning ‘home’ for a few days or flying off for a city break – what is the ideal size of luggage to take? Look no further than this, the Carl Friedrik Palissy Weekend Bag. Whilst priced at £495, Carl Friedrik creates designs with minimalistic aesthetics which let the materials speak for themselves. Inspired by modern professionals, all pieces are designed around their needs – combining style and functionality. The whole range is handcrafted in Italy by trusted craftsmen, only using the finest vegetable- tanned Vachetta leather. I love that you can choose the internal lining colour – orange, red or grey – as well as opt for monogramming for a slightly smart touch. Worth just booking a trip for? Absolutely.
