Able to survive bumpy journeys, glide through airports, and make a stylish statement in hotel lobbies, Valextra K-Val luggage (www.valextra.com) is an ideal travel companion. The black-and-white jacquard cases—including the carry-on ($7,330) and midsize bag ($6,800)—are made with an abrasion-resistant and waterproof Kevlar-and-polyester material and fitted with wheels made from the same material as Pirelli high-performance tires. The K-Val cases are shown with the Valextra Small Costa suitcase in grained yellow calfskin ($6,770). The Berluti straw hat and cotton scarf (www.berluti.com), priced at $670 and $290, respectively, and the $385 Morgenthal Frederics Abe sunglasses (www.morgenthalfrederics.com) will keep the traveler fashionably in step.
