It wasn’t too long ago that baggage carousels were filled with bulky suitcases in black and brown, and the only way to tell your bag apart was to secure it with a bright ribbon. Now, companies new and old, like Away and Tumi, have begun a bona fide renaissance of colorful luggage, making simple, hard-shell suitcases in bright, bold colors and offering tons of customization options. Keep reading for our favorite rainbow-hued suitcases on the market right now, and don’t worry if a bright pink roller isn’t your thing: even the black, dark green, and navy bags in the new luggage cohort have a sleek finish that will distinguish them from the crowd.
Herschel Supply Co., Trade Luggage Power, 23″

This four-wheel carry-on has a split design with interior mesh storage compartments, as well as a USB charging port, removable battery, and TSA-approved combination lock on the zipper. We love the juxtaposition between the two-tone exterior and the black-and-white striped interior.

Rimowa, Essential Cabin Packing Case, 22″
Rimowa luggage is known for its ultra-sleek design, but you’re more likely to see the suitcases in their signature aluminum exterior than a bright, poppy hue. Little-known fact: The German brand offers a range of colorful polycarbonate bags that are just as durable (and a little more affordable) than the classic aluminum Cabin case.
