Decades after travelling trunks have evolved to become the efficient, ergonomic, durable suitcases we know today, jetsetters can’t help but think that style was compromised to make way for convenience.
Not that it could be helped. Truth is, anyone who has travelled, for business or otherwise, has had to give up some degree of elegance and luxury—that’s just the reality of security checks and travelling hassles.
Of course, there are brands that claim to offer modern functionality without abandoning design and heritage. And because both adjectives get thrown around casually to catch the attention of discerning jetsetters, the true arbiters of luxury are going all out to show what makes them worth your time.
Hartmann, with a heritage that spans as far back as 1877, has created some of the most impressive travel bags in existence and continues to do so, over a century later.
The importance of luggage that can stand the rigors of your frequent jaunts across the globe is paramount; but looking good as you make your way from one point to another is just as important.
Hartmann’s collection stands as a testament that a thorough understanding of timeless design and luxurious detailing, anchored on a legacy of delivering products that make journeys more elegant, can deliver exquisite pieces. And over a hundred years after they started to do so, their heritage of craftsmanship is still evident.
It’s all in the details—carefully hewn leather painstakingly hand-stitched together, meticulously designed bags fit for travel, exceptionally crafted luggage that will stand the test of time. Quite simply, Hartmann is designed to exude elegance and style, while still providing complete functionality and comfort.
For the truly discerning, these can only be found in a brand that quietly boasts an intuitive understanding of what travellers seek and need; built steadily through the years as they catered to the desires of jetsetters.
“It’s about making a statement about your sense of practicality and functionality as well as your eye for quality and detail—and Hartmann is proof of all these, all in one beautifully designed piece,” ends Michael Corpuz, Marketing and Sales Manager, Samsonite Philippines, Inc.
