Rolls-Royce $60k luggage set: Pack your bags, Louis Vuitton

Rolls-Royce has released a six-piece luggage set that is inspired by the company’s Wraith coupe and is priced to turn most buyers white.

The ultra-luxury car manufacturer is quoting a rest-of-the-world price tag of US$42,606 (approximately AU$56,000) for its specially crafted set, making it considerably more expensive than even a similar collection from haute-couture bag hero Louis Vuitton.

The Wraith Luggage Collection was created by Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke Design team, and incorporates three Long Weekender bags, two Grand Tourer roller bags, and a Garment Carrier.

It was manufactured by craftspeople who even wore white gloves to avoid blemishes on the expensive leather.

Ergonomics were as much a priority as the high-quality materials used. The handles of the Long Weekender bags were designed to be effortless to carry, with even weight distribution and an invisible stitch (as applied to the Wraith’s steering wheel) for a smooth grip.

They also feature machine-polished aluminium zips that mimic the shape of the Wraith and can be fastened to the bags magnetically.

The frame of the Rolls roller bag incorporates carbon fibre to reduce weight, while the wheels feature a widened track to aid stability. The wheels also feature the company’s famous ‘RR’ logo.

The slimline design of the Garment Carrier, which holds dresses or suits and shirts, allows it to be placed above the other luggage inside the Wraith’s boot.

Each item of luggage is embossed with Rolls-Royce’s famous flying-lady logo – the Spirit of Ecstasy – and can be purchased individually.

However, you will need another $645,000 (plus on-road costs) to buy the Wraith coupe to go with your fancy, high-end luggage.
