Whether you're hitting the beach, the pool or the road, keep a stylish holdall to hand!

 Although we're not against small suitcases with wheels for practical purposes, especially when travelling for business, you can't beat a good old-fashioned holdall in the style stakes. The fact that you have to exert some effort to carry a full holdall adds a masculine dimension to their appeal. If you're whisking your beloved away for the weekend, a small pull-along case (incidentally similar to the ones that air stewardesses use) won't convey the optimum message. You should be thinking spontaneity, adventure and style, and not look as if you're trundling off to the annual cost-cutting conference. Check the gallery below to see five holdalls that fit the bill.

Bringing to mind vintage motoring luggage from the days when travel was an altogether more stylish affair, this handsome leather holdall also demonstrates that this New York Brand excels at more than just jeans


"Yves Saint Laurent" to those in the know, and a pleasing geometric form to those who aren't. the subtle Y-shaped logo on this calfskin bag only adds to its sleek design. Capacious inside, this holdall is ideal for longer trips.

Understated and streamlined, this sharp bag wouldn't look out of place with a work outfit, if you have bulky papers or files to carry. Of course it's great for trips away as well, and it is extra durable since it is made from came leather - a particularly infrangible skin.

Baggage handlers might do their best to destroy your luggage, but they're unlikely to have much luck with this stylish holdall, constructed from an extremely durable coated canvas. With its chic design and leather details, you might not want to let it out of your sight at all, though.

Embossed with the iconic Italian fashion house's signature monogram, this sophisticated leather holdall says all the right things - and might just clinch you that free flight upgrade at the airport. Even if it doesn't, though, its timeless design is something you can enjoy for years to come.
