Train Cases

I saw this photo of Alexa Chung today. She attended the Fendi bash in a simple black dress and flats , but she chose to carry a Fendi Train Case instead of a more conventional handbag.

If you are but a babe in arms, you may not recognize these - woman use to carry them when they traveled by train to ensure that all their make-up and potions would keep upright and secure. I have a little thing about these - and for vintage hatboxes too and every once in while travel with them even if they are a colossal pain in the ass now that traveling is an ordeal, rather then a luxury.

These are a few cases spanning different decades from my personal archives. Its just a quick snapshot on one of the house bed's so please excuse the quality. Even so I think it gives you a great idea of how fabulous these cases can be!
