Come next spring, there'll be another big brand competing with the likes of Louis Vuitton for your luxe luggage dollars. On the heels of their successful 24:7 shoe collection (ha), Jimmy Choo is opening up the line to include suitcases, overnighter bags, totes and passport-friendly clutches.
The 24:7 Bags line hits shelves in February 2011, so it's not something you can add to your list quite yet, although who'd want to is beyond us. That cabin luggage looks cheaper than an American Tourister, not to mention too wide to fit many overhead luggage compartments. See this Harper's Bazaar image for a better look. Hello, checked baggage fees (and dirty Jimmy Choo cases)!
