Who could forget the scene in Sabrina when Audrey Hepburn returns from Paris a Continental sophisticate?As much as her new gamine-chic look, it was the mass of trunks she brought along that announced her as a woman of style. Today's traveler might find it too difficult to get around with such luggage (even if William Holden were there to help carry it), but we could certainly use some vintage glamour. Enter Tumi's hard-sided, handcrafted Townhouse case, designed by the company's creative director, Nautica founder David Chu. The bag is modeled after an early-20th-century design, but made for a modern-day voyager. There's the sturdy wooden frame, the separate accessories box, and the polished nickel locks; then there's the signature ballistic nylon, the retractable handle, and the barely visible sealed-ball-bearing wheels. So now you can channel old Hollywood as you roll quietly, smoothly along.
