I really love bags from the 1970s. I'm not sure whether its because its the obligatory 30 years ago to make them cool again or because i love vinyl. These bags below are vintage travel bags of the Samsonite and American Tourister variety made for the early days of mass plane travel.

The location of this umbrella pocket on the tote above is just superb.

And who can resist and angled front zip pocket.

This front pocket which is neither integrated or loose is also a winner. Looking slightly awkward stuck onto the front of this navy vinyl number. Even the width of the shoulder strap - neither wide nor narrow gets my creative bag juices flowing.

What about this suitcase sans wheels. I love the slightly elongated profile of it and the rounded badge stuck smack bang in the centre.

Loving the sliding shoulder pad!

And the very sight of this bag above reminds me of flared trousers and the Brady Bunch.

And, yes, you can have it all with this full family set of mustard coloured luggage. Who's up for a trip to Disneyland?

I love these, they're so retro. Particularly the mustard set, they are so on-trend right now...! :o)
