Queen of the World Launches Innovative Luggage

The new collection is designed for fast-paced travelers…

The leather and carbon-fiber specialist designer Fernando Jordan conceived the new five-piece Carbon Couture luggage collection, which employs lightweight yet remarkably durable carbon-fiber elements to make travel easier. Manufactured in Italy by the British luggage company Queen of the World, each bag—priced from about $300 to $43,000—is crafted from Foglizzo Italian leather and lined with goatskin suede. The Lungo weekend travel bag—one of the highlights of the collection—has carbon-fiber telescopic handles, designed to retract and extend with ease. Proprietary wheels formed from highly durable solid blocks of titanium and lightweight aeronautical aluminum give the bag more maneuverability on the go. It is equipped with lockable external pockets and internal compartments, as well as a waterproof and zipped internal pouch. (Available exclusively through Harrods of London,, +44.207.730.1234, ext. 3696)
