If the thought of packing your belongings in a mundane suitcase gives you the shudders, then this cheery boutique is for you. Big Bag was once a West Village staple before it moved to its current location in 2009, and it’s since gained a following for its colorful, fashion-forward selection. Paisley wallpaper and glass globe light fixtures adorn the front of the store, where everyday purses and wallets from popular brands such as Rebecca Minkoff, MZ Wallace and Hobo International predominate. Jet-setters should beeline to the back, where they’ll find limited-edition Missoni for Bric’s medium trolleys ($830) splashed with the Italian label’s signature zigzag print and whimsical Orla Kiely car-print small trolley suitcases ($295), toiletry bags ($145) and large rolling duffels ($275). For overnight stays, opt for Hervé Chapelier signature nylon totes ($168) and Jack Gomme waterproof bags ($178) made from lightweight Japanese rain-jacket material.
