    This uber-mysterious French luxury brand opened its first NYC flagship store with barely a whisper last year, but its exterior is unmissable—just look for the giant stack of colorful suitcases parked outside its Upper East Side townhouse. After perusing the store's selection of handbags, small leather goods, and larger trunks—which, fair warning, are quite expensive—make your way to the serene courtyard out back. [Photo: Getty]

    In the nearly 150 years since its founding, Hartmann has been perfecting its luxurious travel accessories, which range from durable hard side suitcases ($500 and up) to fancy-pants tweed weekender bags ($645) and leather wallets ($175). Hit up the flagship midtown boutique for the most knowledgeable service (and store accents like casual globes). [Photo]

    Give your old canvas tote bags a major makeover at this quirky Williamsburg shop, where shockingly bright colors, happy face patterns, or silly squiggles give each product a lighthearted lift. In addition to the classic tote ($9), there's also weather-proof weekenders ($140), makeup pouches ($15), laptops bags ($28), backpacks ($26), and a selection of leather handbags as well ($100 to $200).

    Though luggage name brands usually aren't on the tips of tongues of fashionistas the way, say, French fashion houses are, we bet you've heard of top-of-the-line Tumi before. Head to this massive flagship location to get your travel gear monogrammed right before your eyes. [Photo: Getty]

    So maybe a Louis Vuitton steamer trunk isn't the most practical of options for jetting away for the weekend, but nothing quite like it that screams "luxury travel." Get your Damier pattern fix on pieces like rolling and soft-sided luggage, and throw in matching weekender-style bags, makeup cases, and passport covers while you're at it. [Photo: Getty]

    The French brand's ubiquitous Le Pliage nylon tote bag is practically the unofficial carry-on bag of twenty-somethings in JFK and LGA. It's the perfect travel companion: It's lightweight, stores easily under airplane seats, and folds away for discreet packing. But check out the rest of the offerings at the Madison Avenue flagship for even more luxe luggage options. [Photo: Getty]

    The leather goods store opened this location two summers ago to compliment its store across from the Plaza Hotel, bringing downtown denizens the same quality selection of twill and leather duffel bags, rolling luggage, and every size of travel case that you could ever need. Pick up a bottle of their leather cleaner to keep your bags looking fresh (in case the TSA isn't as delicate with your stuff as you are). [Photo: Getty]

    If you're headed to the Times Square flagship pre-vacation to stock up on fairly-priced travel accessories like clear plastic bottles, neck pillows, and cosmetics bags with just the right amount of pockets, don't overlook their luggage selection: It's certainly a challenge to find a better hard-shell suitcase at this price point.

    The name here (which was recently changed from 'For the Go") says it all: You'll fine various collections of Samsonite rolling suitcases, plus smaller travel necessities that are handily divided into section—think car, air, foot, cycle, and kid-friendly. From an airplane pillow to first aid kids, phone adaptors, even Kosher travel meals, this place has it all. [Photo]

    Never thought you'd be into shopping for travel gear the same way you're interested in shopping for shoes? Then you probably haven't been to Flight 001 yet, where among the mix of durable luggage (think lots of Avionette and Rimowa) are kitschy luggage tags, patterned cosmetic cases, colorful power adapters, in-flight accessories, and more. Pop by this Carroll Gardens location or check out the shop in Greenwich. [Photo: Flight 001/Facebook]

    You know those hard-side aluminum suitcases? Yeah, that's mostly thanks to Rimowa, the German brand that's been in the luggage industry since 1898. The first grooved aluminum case didn't come until 1950, however, but they've been making them similarly since. Current styles mostly ring in in around the $400 to $500 range. [Photo: Rimowa]
