With summer comes the hope of a well-deserved vacation. And if you're looking for luggage, you can't get much better than Dunhill's new Traveller collection. A collaboration between the discerning London label and incognito premier travel guru, Andrew Harper, the handsome bags offer luxury that's anything but discreet—from the perfectly sized holdall to an 800-page travel review with membership to Harper's exclusive club (complete with the services of a personal travel advisor). Of course, with a connoisseur like Andrew Harper behind the set, we'd expect nothing less. Understandably, your pockets may already be burnt out from booking plane tickets and hotel rooms, so we asked Harper for some pro-bono travel tips.
