Staying at home for more than a year has left us all understandably rusty at many things that we took for granted. Without practice, our social skills have been left a little rough around the edges, but perhaps the most heavily affected skill is how to travel well.
Without the prospect of a holiday, it’s as though our minds completely erased all memory of what to pack and how to holiday. But, with travel back on the cards, it’s time to relearn and why not do it in style with these luxury travel essentials?
Purveyor of luxury in all of its guises, SSENSE knows a thing or two about traveling in style. With many of us hitting the airport for our first trip away in what seems like a lifetime, it makes sense that we go take no prisoners.
We’re talking the best suitcases, grooming sets, headphones, and even a Gucci passport holder. So, if you’re readying for some time away, make sure there are no half measures with our luxury travel essentials. Better still, you can take 15 percent off your holiday haul until November 1 when you enter code 'FW2021' at checkout.
