Globe-Trotter Spring/Summer Collection Trolley Case
Founded back in 1847, Globe-Trotter is now one of the world’s most coveted luggage brands, famous for proving the strength of their cases by persuading an elephant to stand on one. And with this image since ingrained in people’s minds, the brand has been championed by famous names such as Kate Moss and Sofia Coppola. Now, Globe-Trotter’s spring/summer 2017 collection takes inspiration from one of the brand’s suitcases that appeared in its archives. This particular suitcase – which had been used by Hilary Farish, a BOAC air stewardess in the sixties – is distinguished by an interior that’s covered in travel stickers she collected from around the world. Now this luggage has been reinvented in warm grey or ivory with desert rose or marine hue straps.
