    The Geo Collection is Alviero Martini's most iconic concept, featuring sepia tone vintage maps that evoke the elegance of vintage travel. Done in geo classic coated canvas, these travel bags are the perfect way to travel in effortless style. This set includes a rolling suitcase, a large shoulder bag perfect for long excursions, five duffle bags, four Boston bags, and a three piece dopp kit with a small cylinder travel pouch. Every piece in this set is trimmed in beige leather piping, features two rolled beige leather handles, and brass hardware and feet. The suitcase features an extendable handle, one beige rolled leather top handle, a beige leather detachable handle, one zip pocket on the front side, and a zip around front closure. The shoulder bag features two long beige leather shoulder straps and a zip around top closure. The weekender bag features a zip around side closure that locks on one end, and a beige leather top handle. The duffel bags feature one beige leather and canvas removable shoulder strap each, and zip top closures. The largest duffel bag features a flap top side pocket with a double belt and push lock closure. The interiors of the suitcase, the weekender bag, the cylinder pouch, and two of the larger duffle bags are done in beige canvas. The two larger duffle bags feature one interior zip pocket each. The suitcase features two beige canvas straps to secure contents. The weekender bag features elastic slip pockets, and a beige leather X belt strap to keep contents secure. The interior of the ten remaining bags are done in salmon leather. The largest duffle bag features one interior zip pocket. The second smallest duffle bag features one zip pocket, and the smallest duffel bag features one slip pocket. The four duffle bags and the large shoulder bag feature one interior zip pocket each.

    This travel bag set is in Good Condition. There is scratching, creasing, black and white scuffing, and indentation throughout the leather accents and the canvas exteriors. There is substantial scuffing from wear to the bases and the base corners of all of the bags. The leather handles are darkened from wear, and there is water marking throughout the leather. The hardware is scratched, darkened, indented, and has black patina in places. The brass feet have chipped to reveal a silver tone base metal. The wheels and base stoppers on the rolling suitcase show substantial wear. The interior zip pocket in the largest duffle bag has torn through the lining.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $2,500.
