1. Globe-trotter St Moritz 30″ Suitcase with Wheels, £2,125
Living up to its name, Globe-Trotter is the first and last name in old-world travelling glamour, as its latest ski-slanted collection likes to hammer home. With its ivory case and red-and-navy straps it’s about as fitting for the Alpine resort as a Moncler ski jacket. Just don’t feel you need to take it down the slope with you.

2. Bellerby & Co Albion Globe, From £2,899
Whether you want to plan your next big adventure or reminisce about where you’ve been, Bellerby & Co’s stunning globes are a good place to start. The Albion is one of the entry models but it can spin 360 degrees thanks to its ball-bearing system. Better yet, you can customise it with cartographical embellishments, journey lines and hand-painted images. And no, there are no drinks inside.

3. Tumi London Rolltop Backpack, £425
The perfect gap-year backpack, Tumi’s latest carry-on has all the necessary credentials. Sure it’s incredibly rugged, practical and able to hold everything you could need halfway through the jungle. But it’s also made from recycled bottles and post-industrial nylon, meaning that Tumi is doing its part to save the world. Most importantly though, it’s one of the coolest-looking serious backpacks around.

4. Seiko Astron 8X Series Dual Time, £1,495
Hopping from time zone to time zone means you can lose track of exactly what time it is where you are, let alone back home. The Seiko Astron on the other hand – of which the 8X series is the latest version – automatically syncs via satellite to ensure it’s always correct, wherever your travels take you. It also looks pretty darn snazzy, too.
