FrontRunners: Fashionable Luggage

Santiago Gonzalez appreciates functional and fashionable luggage. Indeed, traveling weekly between his homes and offices in New York, Paris, and Cali, Colombia, he makes great use of the duffel that he designed for the Santiago Gonzalez Men’s Collection (available at Bergdorf Goodman, www.bergdorfgoodman.com). The collection is produced in Colombia by Nancy Gonzalez, the namesake brand that his mother founded in 1998.
 
The duffel comes in crocodile and in colors ranging from olive green to denim blue. Interior compartments for papers as well as electronics secure those belongings without adding bulk.
 
Frequent travelers also can look to Tumi and Bottega Veneta for stylish offerings. A series of new and improved Bottega Veneta weekenders (www.bottegaveneta.com) includes soft-leather or exotic-skin duffels and structured compact square bags with or without wheels. The smart design features of the Tumi Bedford Westwood overnighter (www.tumi.com) include pockets for electronics and a compartment for footwear. The bag also features softly rounded corners and durable leather construction.
