A Suitable Case for Globe-Trotter
On a trip to Spain recently, my suitcase was certainly looking its age, burst zips, broken seems, the usual wear-and-tear you'd expect from years of service. Sadly, I had bought it only last year in Venice. The sales assistant assured me that this Italian range of luggage was the most rugged and well-made on the market. Practically indestructible she assured me in an utterly charming way. I was beguiled and bought a case. Here I am a year later considering a replacement. Maybe Globe-Trotter is the answer? They've been around since 1897, so probably know a thing or two about creating robust luggage. And, although they look nice new, I imagine it's the sort of luggage that looks even better with a few knocks and scrapes.
Globe-Trotter had a successful tie-up with Hackett last year to produce the Mayfair, Aston Martin Racing and London Line ranges. Now they have the ‘1897’ series, a full collection of soft leather goods. Designed and hand-made in England. Beautiful stuff. I'm taken with a Boston weekend bag and an Original trolley case in orange and tan, so I'd better start saving.
