Have you ever tried shopping for the “perfect” travel handbag? I have…many times. I have currently settled on a Baggallini brand bag to suit my needs. As much as I like it, I am still always keeping my eye out for yet another “perfect” one. But I know I am not going to find it because it has already been done. Decades ago.
Two vintage brands (that I know of), Coblentz and Koret, made the chic-est travel handbags. I own a Coblentz version. Simple lines and thoughtful styling create a timeless bag.
An attached wallet made access to travel documents easy and secure:
Plus inside a plethora of pockets and secret places to store other necessary items:
I can see many a lovely traveler carrying such an elegant bag as she boarded a Pan Am flight to visit Paris for her first time.
Should I use this in my own travels? Probably. The only thing it lacks is a cross-body strap which is important to me. Maybe I should take some time to figure out how to add one to this “perfect” travel bag. Suggestions?
