The home-bound crowd who spent the pandemic dreaming of being elsewhere can now travel more easily — and do so in style.

Orient Express, the luxury rail service famed for its nearly century-long Paris-to-Istanbul line — and for its cars dressed with velvet and crystal — will soon release a stock of high-gloss travel, and travel-inspired objects, thanks to a new collaboration with 18 high-end houses and designers.

Set to be available at Orient-Express.com on July 15 (and at the just-reopened La Samaritaine department store in Paris), “Steam Dream” will encompass items for traveling, lounging, dining and sleeping — with names including Bang & Olufsen, Bernardaud and Smythson.

The collection’s release is a new step in the brand’s future.

Though the Orient Express hasn’t trekked from Paris to Istanbul since 1977, the Venice-Simplon Orient Express, owned by Belmond, operates trips between London and Venice, and a number of other European cities, in restored train carriages — and will soon include hotels.

From sunglasses to baggage and even a backgammon trunk, there’s something to suit any traveler’s taste.

Here’s a look at what they can get.
