Whether you’re bound for Saint-Tropez, Nantucket, or merely Coney Island on the weekends, there’s no excuse for carrying anything that resembles a tote you got as a goody bag, unless of course it was an event at Hermès. But in the absence of dreams coming true, turn to Floto Imports and their Piana Canvas luggage. You know those weekend bags you’ve admired from a distance? Only to find out they’re handmade by some old grandfather in Capri. Well, these carryalls have the same style, without the price tag or sacrificial first born, and they’re even handmade in Tuscany. High-quality canvas is edged in supple leather, with a striped cotton lining on the inside. And the extra-wide opening makes packing a breeze, even if the closest thing you’ll get to sea air is off the Hudson.
