Johnnie Walker Blue Label Luggage by Bill Amberg

In October British luggage designer Bill Amberg will launch a new limited edition line of leathergoods in collaboration with Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Johnnie Walker Blue Label by Bill Amberg Studio comprises collection of travel accessories for men that "celebrate the values of craftsmanship, quality and rarity shared by these two iconic brands." The collection centers on a beautifully crafted limited-edition bag, the Weekender (above) which is "bold and masculine in design, capturing the contemporary desire for discreet style and practicality." Made of the finest quality saddle leather in deep navy blue with a bespoke, numbered label, it features a removable carrier designed specifically to hold a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label Scotch Whisky which is included in the bag. Only 350 of the bags will be available worldwide, priced at about $2,000.
