There’s nothing more tedious than having to spend time unpacking when you’re on holiday – especially a mini break, as it eats into valuable sightseeing time and more importantly, means less time to get your tan on.
So when I recently came across these elegant, vintage-style leather travel chests by new brand HeyChesto
, I just had to share, I think they’re perfect for a whirlwind weekender or would make a beautiful gift.
I am the absolute worst for random packing, partly because I use a leather holdall that is so dark and cavernous inside I can’t see what I’ve put in there (I went to Brighton for a girls’ weekend recently only to find I’d forgotten a shoe, toothbrush and PJs) and partly because when I get to my destination I can’t be bothered to unpack, meaning it’s a lucky dip every time I venture into the depths of my bag.
I reckon this beauty could revolutionise my travels though. Looky, everything is easy to view! You can fold on real shelves! You can park things in compartments! Basically, people, it’s a wardrobe on wheels.
PLUS it looks super stylish with matching corners, handles and luggage straps and vintage-style brass buckles and lock – a cross between an English boarding school trunk and a fashion stylist’s dream holdall, so it works equally well for teens and travellers as well as luxury seekers.
The good news is that at Muddy we’re onto this brand super early, so you can pre-order a chest at the launch price of £295
(RRP £415) with free initials embossing until 14 July (yes, get to it quick) and have it delivered for Christmas. Ho, ho, ho!
