Gen­teel women in the late 18th and 19th cen­turies aced it with one of these el­e­gant, com­part­men­talised boxes used to carry cos­met­ics.

Gucci, for ex­am­ple, has teamed up with Globe-Trot­ter on a nine-piece col­lec­tion that in­cludes a small trunk with its sig­na­ture bam­boo han­dle and GG Supreme mono­gram can­vas. Coach has a slightly rounded ver­sion with a leather top han­dle, while Chanel has come up with one in trendy quilted salmon pink lamb­skin, com­plete with its trade­mark chain and leather strap
