Rethinking the travel trunk

The bygone era of the travel trunk is having a rebirth with T.T.Trunks, and it is very exciting indeed.

Honing the magic of a simple rivet, the Paris-based brand shows how the traditional trunk’s angular form can be opened to reveal a world of endless possibilities.

Founded only seven years ago by former Louis Vuitton project manager Julien Trossat, this nascent French malletier is redefining travel with their Nomad No Limit manifesto. Their trunks draw together creative vision with expert engineering, and each piece is built for a specific lifestyle purpose- especially if your lifestyle includes personally curated parties.

Each piece is individually crafted by end from beginning to end


For instance, the cigar enthusiast will love the Havana trunk – a portable humidor case that comes with an S.T. Dupont cutter & lighter and a handsome Goldsmith ashtray- because one’s personal stash is always the most satisfying. Same goes for the lavish Millésime trunk, a veritable travelling bar equipped with a ten-bottle temperature controlled wine cellar, eight Château Baccarat wine glasses & flutes, a built-in SONOS speaker, and more. Why leave the hotel suite when you’ve got everything you need to host directly out of your beautiful T.T.Trunks?

Meanwhile, the Dandy and the Mademoiselle were built for the safekeeping of his and her most precious pieces. The Dandy trunk is specifically designed for the watch collector. Built with a central placement of three SwissKubik watch winder boxes, it includes several smaller compartments for individual watches and one large drawer to display the remainder of his collection on a soft roller-style watch organiser. Additional storage flaps are intended for stationery, notepads and mail, while the top surface features a built-in charging unit for phones & iPads, and is complete with a SONOS speaker. Perfect for the Dandy who has it all.

For the ladies, the feminine Mademoiselle trunk meets the needs of the glamorous voyageuse who cannot part from her gems. With a thoroughly organised layout, this compact trunk features a slender removable box with carefully concealed storage sections for rings, bracelets and necklaces, finished with three watch rollers at the base and a grained leather envelope pouch for important documents.

T.T.Trunks are hand-made in Alicante, Spain using artisanal woodworking methods and the finest materials. They are lined in soft microfiber and sheathed in lustrous calfskin, with hand-finished metallic details.
