How to Dress for an Adventure: Your Essential Travel Style Tips

From Japan to Nepal, scale a mountain with style.

As important as the journey’s end is the road that leads you there. Here, three options for many happy expeditions: a roll-on suitcase, a messenger, and a tote from Hermès. Check the dimensions, tight and compact, the ideal size for weaving through the crush of Shibuya or Heathrow. But don’t let their bantam forms fool you. These are fully functional travel bags made of water-resistant canvas (edged with barenia calfskin) and fitted with lined compartments and deep pockets (for ultra organization). That discrete colorway of graphite and taupe keeps them off the radar of handsy bandits, too. No worries. No distractions. Just focus on the road ahead. One hand on your bag, one foot in front of the other.
