Five of the Best Packing Organisers

Right, you’ve got the hard bit out of the way and have whittled your extensive wardrobe down to a capsule collection of chic holiday pieces. Now, here’s how to pack them...


Anya Hindmarch Inflight Organiser

We love that this super-chic Anya Hindmarch organiser has brought an end to inflight woes and saved us from scrabbling about in our hand luggage and getting up and down to use the overhead lockers. The compact organiser has a patent aubergine trim and features two zip compartments, one for take-off and one for touch-down. Each side is clear so you don’t have to rummage about, and it’s the perfect size for all the pick-me-up essentials you’ll need onboard. Now all you need to do is fill it with our pick of the best inflight accessories and turn up at your destination looking suitably glamorous.

La Cerise Sur Le Gateau Travel Bag

How can it possibly be as hard as it is to find the other shoe of a pair in such a tiny case? We’re not sure, but French textile brand La Cerise Sur Le Gateau are here to help. Their lightweight cotton bags are a practical and stylish option for protecting your shoes and keeping them together, and each bag comes with gorgeous neon pink graphics on the front, so you’ll never lose them. Go for the matching drawstring print bag for underwear, bikinis or just dirty laundry. Your case will never have been so organised.

Eagle Creek Pack It Cubes and Folder

Sometimes a product comes along that changes your life. No really, the Eagle Creek packing system cubes can do just that. Forget messy cases, these ingenious cubes micromanage your packing, meaning you can not only pack more neatly, but more importantly fit a lot more in. They’re made from a lightweight fabric with a breathable mesh front, and come in 11 different sizes for different garments. They’ve also developed a new packing folder, which is made from lightweight ripstop, so you can see what’s inside. You can lay out silk dresses and shirts and use the careful folding instruction board to fit them in your hand luggage and minimise creases during travel. Allowing you to do a Victoria Beckham and have a new outfit ready for the moment you step off the plane...

Muji Travel Case

Packing for a mini-break or even just an overnight stay is usually the hardest of all. (It’s probably because we have way too many things, but don’t want to turn up with a ridiculously oversized bag...) Muji can help with that. Their neat grey travel cases come with four spacious removable pouches (two mesh and two fabric) and several zip closures for clothes, accessories and all your beauty products. So you can fit a deceptive amount in and still shrug it off with a ‘oh, I always travel minimally’. Ideal.

Cath Kidston Wash Roll

Adding a little bit of prettiness to your packing is the gorgeous floral fabric wash roll from Cath Kidston. With three clear zip pockets for all your lotions and potions, a floral zip bag for makeup and a handy pouch for brushes and combs, it all rolls up neatly with a cute ribbon. This is one you certainly won’t be embarrassed to leave out in your hotel bathroom.
