For the ladies who need a break and can’t afford the time and energy for that lengthy dream vacation, a nearby weekend escape or staycation might be your next best bet. The weekender bag was made for just such a purpose and is certainly a more practical and stylish alternative to rolling around a bulky wheeled carry-on, especially if you’re not packing that much in. Succinct in form and function, why not try these 5 easy weekender bags for that next brief escape?


Kate Spade Watson Lane Lyla

Sling or carry it, Kate Spade’s Lane Lyla weekender bag is as sturdy as it is light. Made from durable jersey-backed woven nylon with leather trim, it scores points in the style department too. Perfect for housing essentials for a short getaway or even a gym session, it also comes in black and black and “clotted cream” tone stripes, aside from the evergreen shown here.

Balenciaga Bazar Shopper XL

Size really does matter, especially when it comes to finding a bag large yet flexible enough to accommodate all your mini-holiday knick-knacks. Look no further than Balenciaga’s Bazar Shopper bag in XL! This colourful lambskin traveling companion is big on space and character with its colourful stripes and ample room to fit just about anything you want! An embossed gold company logo on the front highlights its Italian heritage.

Louis Vuitton Keepall 55 Bandouliere

In true Louis Vuitton tradition, this carrier boasts the brand’s signature quality finishing from the natural cowhide leather trimmings to the golden brass buckles, zips and joints, right down to the meticulously detailed hand stitching of its classic Monogram canvas. Bandouliere, French for ‘worn over the shoulder’ is a name befitting this cabin-sized beauty which includes a removable shoulder strap along with a padlock and leather ID holder just in case.

Longchamp Le Pliage Travel Bag

Inspired by origami, Longchamp’s Le Pliage collection is convenience in its simplest form. The bag folds away into paperback size for easy storage but once expanded, holds about as many belongings as can be put into a regular duffel bag. Also iconic is its lightness and durability which means this Bilberry coloured Nylon carry-on is good to go anywhere at anytime!


Cuyana Le Sud Overnight

It may be called an overnight bag but Cuyana’s leather and canvas sling-on can certainly last you a longer trip with a large enough interior and adequate inner plus outer pockets for your travel necessities. Made from Turkish materials, it is not only a pleasure to carry but its mixed soft grey/natural tone is also soothing to the eye. Adjustable side straps tidy up its look once you’re all packed and ready to roll!
