Going a step further is what Horizn Studios is all about. As an innovative luxury luggage brand, it not only lives and breathes travel but also brings genuine fresh thinking to its masterfully designed bags and cases.
After years of travel restrictions brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re more than ready to get packing again. Itchy feet are a huge understatement. Answering the call of the departure lounge, Horizn Studios offers a clever range of luggage that caters to every kind of trip and every kind of globetrotter. Which, of course, includes cases of every size, backpacks, and travel accessories.
These innovative travel companions are completely in step with the next generation of travelers. Unlike the vast majority of identikit cases you see on the baggage claim conveyor belt, Horizn’s collection is urbane, sustainable, and smartly designed.
Just last year, it created the Circle One, a range billed as the world’s most sustainable luxury luggage, made from 100% plant-based and biodegradable materials. Horizn Studios isn’t even 10 years old yet but it already has a reputation for doing things differently.
The brand launched in 2015, Europe’s first direct-to-consumer travel brand. Since then, it has established itself as a bona fide disruptor in the market. In 2016, it launched the world’s first luggage with a detachable charging function. In 2019, it created space luggage in collaboration with NASA astronaut Alyssa Carson. Other collab partners include BMW, the Soho House Group, and Beats By Dre.
Each Horizn Studios product, from large hold luggage to commuter backpacks, is designed to “accompany you for life”. Made from tough but sustainable materials, they come with practical features such as four-stage telescopic handles, hidden pockets, expandable sections, and water-sealed compartments. They’re also designed to be repaired and used again and again, providing you with genuine long-haul baggage.
We’ve selected our pick of the brand’s best offerings below, ready for every kind of adventure near and far. Where will you take yours?
Horizn’s quintessential cabin luggage is designed to make your whole trip easier, from packing on one bed to unpacking on another. It has an easy-access front pocket for your laptop, a compression pad to help you pack up to five days of clothing, and a detachable charger to top up your devices on the move.
It’s also consciously made from a premium recycled, PETA-approved polycarbonate hard shell and the company’s production is 99% waste-free. Pick from seven modern colorways or customize the design with the brand’s personalization service, Horizn ID.
A mark of Horizn’s contemporary approach to design shines through in its M5 Neon series, available in bright, color-pop options (get ready to never pick up a stranger’s luggage again).
A more affordable version of the brand’s cabin luggage, this doesn’t come with the detachable charger but many of the other clever design touches are there, including the front pocket for essential devices and travel accessories. Other features include 360-degree spinner wheels for smooth transit through the departure lounge and a TSA-approved lock for peace of mind.
Envisioned as a backpack you pack like a suitcase, the SoFo backpack features a back panel that unzips so you can maximize the internal space and organize it however you need to. It’s the kind of detail that elevates Horizn Studios above so many other brands.
A bag you take to the office becomes one that also has you covered for weekends away and longer trips. The backpack also has a padded rear compartment for laptops, breathable padding on the back and shoulders, and despite a plethora of extra pockets it also feels sleek and minimalist.
Another versatile and spacious design, the SoFo Weekender is a true all-rounder. Perfect for last-minute trips, everyday trips to the gym, and everything in between.
The bag features a 32-liter capacity with two additional pockets to store passports, keys, or other essentials you need to grab in a hurry. Made from a water-sealed recycled canvas, the bag is easy also to keep clean.
Don’t let the minimalist good looks fool you, there’s a lot going on inside this backpack. Under a water-resistant shell (perfect for rainy commutes or hikes) you’ll find cleverly placed compartments for your laptop, documents, and other smaller valuables.
Like a lot of Horizn’s smaller bags, it also features a strap that allows it to slot securely onto the handles of your suitcase.
In the last few years, a crossbody bag, fanny pack, bum bag, whatever you want to call it, has become an essential accessory. The ultimate hands-free holdall that keeps your pockets empty and your everyday valuables close and secure.
As handy for travel as it is for everyday journeys, Horizn’s Gion crossbody makes it that little bit easier to enjoy your bike trip, sightseeing, or whatever else you have planned. Again, there are extra-secure compartments for your most valuable items, which have the added protection of waterproof zippers and lining.
One of those simple and practical items that feel like a luxury when you’re using it, the Top Case slips easily over the top of your suitcase handle and gives you easy access to your essentials.
Big enough to hold your headphones or a washbag and more common items like your phone or wallet, it’s also made from extremely tough nylon.
We’re of the opinion there should be a Nobel Prize for smart storage solutions, and Horizn’s Packing Cubes would certainly get our nomination. Packing cubes are the kind of thing you don’t know you need until you’ve used them.
This set of four lets you maximize the space in your bags, organize your belongings and, like all of this brand’s products, they just make travel that little bit easier, that little bit more enjoyable.
