If there’s one thing ELLE loves more than a good dyed-in-the-wool British heritage brand, it’s when such a brand gets together with a young fresh British designer. Such a meeting of old values and young minds results in British design at its very best.
So you can imagine how much we are fawning over the collaboration between British luggage company Globe-Trotter and designer Sophie Hulme. Hulme’s sleek and polished aesthetic - sharpened with signature gold hardware - lends itself perfectly to the classic Globe-Trotter case.
The designer joins an impressive line-up of young British designers in collaborating with the brand – both Jonathan Saunders and Erdem have given the cases their own treatment.
Hulme has given the case a silk lining to match her first ready-to-wear collection, and included a detachable shoulder strap and leather and brass luggage tag with the richly understated bag. Each piece has been created by hand on Victorian machinery at the Globe-Trotter workshop in Hertfordshire.
Just imagine how smug you’d feel when that came out on the luggage carousel?
