Luggage Love: Our NYC Guide To Weekend Travel Bags

Fashion Week is finally over, and all around the city editors are grabbing their Alexander Wang Roccos and returning home or heading to London for more craziness. Yes, we can all finally score a table at Café Gitane, but truth be told, with the continued March winds, continual parade of hideous Ugg Boots, and slushy sidewalks what we'd really like is to pick up and jet the hell out of here. And to make this magical getaway even more seductive, we've been day-dreaming about some new lust-worthy luggage for a super long weekend. Whether it's a Demeulemeester messenger or a vintage satchel from Amacord, it's time to ditch that broken-down rollie bag and travel in style. We can just tell ourselves that Wang is cheaper in Brazil.
