Road Test

When it comes to traveling, one of the most important things you can take with you is a great piece of luggage. A suitcase is by your side at every step of the journey; it is home to your possessions, it safely transports them from home to A to B and back home again, and it protects them from the elements. Choosing what to buy in an increasingly busy market can be tricky, however, and if you’re looking for luggage which is not only practical but also stylish, even quirky, the options are often limited. Launched by the French designer François Lipovetsky in 2005, Lipault is one of France’s leading luggage brands, hailing from Paris and offering collections aimed at meeting the needs of savvy travellers. The brand is all about creating must-have travel cases which never sacrifice style for function. Recently, Lipault collaborated with the iconic French designer Jean Paul Gaultier on a new and exclusive range of luggage. Gaultier is famous for being the “l'enfant terrible" of fashion, thanks to a penchant for challenging the then-standard views of fashion, and this new luggage collection fuses that spirit along with Lipault’s practicality and love of life.

Lipault X Jean Paul Gaultier is a complete collection of twelve unisex pieces, coming in black and burgundy, and adored with the Parisian designer’s logo embossed on a stylish metal plate. The pieces merge two of Gaultier's favourite themes, pinstripes and the conical-breasted corset, which is clearly evident in the 55cm black spinner case I was sent to road test. This case is sleek, and it simply looks good, made from a durable material which is 90 per cent polyester and 10 per cent nylon (making it easy to keep clean), and weighing just 2.4 kilos empty. Exterior features include a generous, zipped front pocket, handles on the top and side, a retractable handle for wheeling, a stylish luggage tag, and 360 degree multidirectional spinner wheels for easy manoeuvrability. Beyond the classic exterior, however, is an unexpected rich gold interior styled in a luxurious, satin-like fabric. Alluring features here include a volume of 37.5 litre, a mesh pocket located inside the lid ideally suited to laundry, a generous zipped pouch for small items, and set of straps complete with fasteners reminiscent of Gaultier’s legendary bustier to keep your possessions neatly in place. If you’re looking for a bag which is stylish, quirky, and ticks all the boxes when it comes to being a practical travel companion, the Lipault X Jean Paul Gaultier collection is ideal.

    Oh So Stylish 4 Star Review

    This is the ideal unisex bag based on this great review and the images. It's stylish, practical, with manly looks and that designer flair which women like my partner love so much. Not to mention being French! Lipault is a top class luggage brand and when you add a touch of JPG, you have a winning combo. Great review UT, love it.

    Exxy But Great 5 Star Review

    I've recently switched to this brand on the advice of a friend and while it's exxy I think the luggage is great - stylish and durable as they promise.

    Love JPG 5 Star Review

    One of the things I love about your website is that it is truly geared to couples and it has plenty of style. This bag looks amazing and would be great to travel with. I have heard of LIpault before but have never bought any pieces, but if there's something with JPGs stamp on it I just might have to upgrade my luggage early!
