Smarten Up the Weekend

Gucci Bright Diamante duffel bag ($1,850 on gucci.com).

While the sensible option for check-in luggage is to trade luxe for practicality, impress the other folk on board your Citation with bright colors and smart styling. Despite the seemingly compact size, the leather duffel bag from Gucci’s new Bright Diamante collection is roomy enough for at least one change of clothes, a toothbrush and two pairs of high heels. Orange is haute to trot this summer, but the bumblebee yellow is more noticeable for anyone hoping to really stand out in the first-class queue. By the way, it is currently cool to travel light and tote your own carry-on. Nobody wants to be mistaken for a Kardashian, obscured behind a luggage mountain on the tarmac.
