Orient Express Au Départ Vertical Travel Tote


Designed to carry the modern traveller’s essentials, Parisian trunk manufacturer Au Départ has designed a vertical travel bag exclusively for Orient Express that features the luxury brand's three-dimensional monogram in Orient Express's signature midnight blue and white. With its jacquard fabric and Italian calf leather details, travel has never looked so good.

An Exclusive Orient Express Creation




A Classic Revisited

Since its inception in 1834, Au Départ has been identified by a monogram in the shape of a three-dimensional parallelepiped, which is inspired by the floors of Pompeii. Here, it is featured in midnight blue, Orient Express's iconic colour.

The Leather

Selected exclusively from the finest Italian tanneries, Au Départ's smooth and durable calf leather is made of the highest quality.

The Canvas

A jacquard woven fabric with reflective thread.

The Manufacturing

The vertical travel tote was designed and manufactured in an artisanal Italian workshop north of Milan.

Anatomy of the Vertical Travel Tote

With a refined form and geometric lines, the vertical travel tote is minimalist and fashion-forward. Its spacious interior allows travellers to carry all of their essentials, including sunglasses, a notebook, and umbrella.
