Traveler's Objects - My suitcase: 100% Made in France
Never judge a suitcase in terms of capacity but by its quality. Because invariably, your degree of on-the-spot fashion turnover will border on the zeros with two (extremely comfortable) bikinis, a tunic, two pairs of shorts and a fabulous playsuit for gala evenings. In short, it is actually rather reassuring: even fashionistas end up letting go between two ice-cream cones and a sandcastle. Don’t travel light, travel in (French) style!
