"International Woman" Suitcases from Longchamp

British conceptual artist Tracey Emin took her passion for travel and sent it packing. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Longchamp's classic Le Pliage bag, Emin applied her avant-garde sensibility to a three-piece collection. Only 200 of the "International Woman" suitcases (www.longchamp.com; 877/566-4242; $4,000) were made, each embroidered with the name of a hotel, city, or street where the artist has fallen in love. "I thought of how I always travel alone now and imagined how fantastic it would be to have someone meet me at the other end," she explains. Here, Emin reveals a few of her favorite places.

WATER BABY "Nice pools are my priority. Hôtel Costes in Paris [239 Rue St.-Hónoré; 33-1/42-44-50-00; doubles from $616] has a brilliant one underground."

BEST VIEW "In Sydney, I like Sean's Panorama [270 Campbell Parade; 61-2/9365-4924; dinner for two $50], a surfer's restaurant in north Bondi."

HOT HANGOUT "If I want to dance, I go to London's Sketch [9 Conduit St.; 44-870/777-4488]. My night usually ends up on the tables at my local pub, the Golden Heart [110 Commercial St.; 44-207/247-2158]."
