Shiny Travel Gear: The Dunhill Aluminum Luggage Collection

Leather luggage has long been a stylish gentleman traveler's staple. If you're tired of the same old airport gear made from animal hide, however, the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust and Art Deco make quite a nice pairing in Alfred Dunhill's gorgeous Aluminum Luggage collection.

Borrowing from Dunhill's own roster of designs from Art Deco's heyday in the 30s and 40s, the traveling cases inspire a retro elegance as profiled in the jet set crowd of those years past. Of course, the all-aluminum fabrication seems more compatible with future space travel than a holiday in the Bahamas, guaranteeing a great deal of attention (whether you like it or not) while you stroll down the baggage counter.

The Dunhill Aluminum Luggage uses the polished metal throughout its construction, from its hard-wearing body to the snap lock to the hinges to every single detail. Don't worry, the aluminum has been updated to bear lightweight characteristics, allowing for easy transport while keeping the entire set utterly durable.

Perfect for smuggling precious elements in style, it comes in three sizes - from a small briefcase-like piece for stashing uncut diamonds to a large, traveling case for all the sunken treasure you chanced upon in the Greek islands. Plus, you can probably break someone's face with those hard edges if they try to grab the bag from out of your hands.

Each piece from the Dunhill Aluminum Luggage collection comes with an Alfred Dunhill monogram carved along the top. It's offered in limited quantities, priced between $1,165 and $1,305.
