I HAVE BROUGHT YOU AND I WILL CARRY YOU

What’s 56cm long, 45cm wide and 25cm deep? Your hand luggage allowance. [*Joke trombone noise*]. You might be trying to avoid carousel queues or have deep, emotional attachment to your laptop, but you’ll need the right size bag. Thank us now for the upgrade. (Clear plastic bags for liquids available at security.)

BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL

This suitcase is a joy. The retro-style luggage from design duo Bakker comes in a fun range of Crayola box colours. They almost make hanging about the airport fun. Suitcase by Bakker for The Conran Shop, currently only available in the Chelsea branch (81 Fulham Road, London, SW3), £35

VINTAGE GLAMOUR

The design of this piece will give you the feel of boarding a luxury ocean liner, even as you sit at Pret in Gatwick airport. The Diplomat carry-on from Streamline Luggage has vintage detailing and lots of pockets. Suitcase by Steamline Luggage, £370, Selfridges

RELAX WITH FLOWERS

Quilted, floral, oversize, dream. That’s how we’d describe this canvas travel bag. A thoroughly hip-yet-easy-going piece of luggage, it was made for the more relaxed traveller. Holdall, £35, Urban Outfitters

FAITHFUL LEATHER

Mulberry is fast becoming the smart girl’s choice for timeless-yet-contemporary leather goods. It’s like a tote on steroids: huge, shiny and it has chic gold fastenings and a long strap, which is ideal for when your hands get tired. Holdall, Mulberry, £910, Net-a-Porter

TRIBAL DESIGN

Bold colour and print are huge this season and if you’re not brave enough to wear them, at least accessorise with them. This statement holdall is an edgy, fun option. Going for true airport chic? Don a fiery-red lip to match. Holdall, £45, Asos
