Designers Charles and Simon — two former aeronautical engineers — are looking to reinvent the way people travel through the release of a selection of unique pieces that transform the aesthetic of luxury luggage.

The Montreal-based brand creates luggage from rescued century-old timber logs, calling on the talents of a luthier to rework the reclaimed material. Wooden components are then paired with durable aeronautic materials such as aluminum and carbon fibre, ensuring durability and promising a lifetime of use. Exterior panels are coated in a rich French leather, with each piece lined using a supple Alcantara suede.

What’s more, each Charles Simon piece is completely bespoke, finished with customized engraving of a unique serial number, together with the owner’s name — the brand claims that “each case is as unique as a fingerprint.” The collection shown above is set to cost between $11,975 and $29,850, with a range of exclusive colors available to view and order directly from charles-simon.com.
