New SS17 Globe-Trotter collection at the LFW: Impeccable Craft, Vintage Feel

Globe-Trotter, another traditional brand synonymous with great British design, presented its SS17 handcrafted luggage and leather collection at the LFW Showroom, yesterday. Inspired, as always, by simplicity, Charlotte Seddon, the brand’s designer, has taken the familiar trunk one step further and has created pieces with an exquisite touch of exoticism.

Globe-Trotter, another traditional brand synonymous with great British design, presented its SS17 handcrafted luggage and leather collection at the LFW Showroom, yesterday. Inspired, as always, by simplicity, Charlotte Seddon, the brand’s designer, has taken the familiar trunk one step further and has created pieces with an exquisite touch of exoticism.

Inspired by an extraordinary suitcase that recently found its way into the Globe-Trotter archive – an original 1960s trunk concealing a beautiful collection of over 50 travel stickers from all around the globe, from Rio de Janeiro to Singapore and Tokyo – she has redesigned it with an achromatic approach. The stark white cases in the LFW showroom mix tradition, sophistication and modernity, particularly evident in the vintage bag styles, reinterpreted and produced in trendy summery tones, such as pick peony.

Since 1897, Globe-Trotter’s highly skilled artisans have been handcrafting luxury travel suitcases and accessories in Hertfordshire, England, in some cases using manufacturing methods and machinery that date back to the Victorian era. For 120 years the brand philosophy has remained unchanged: an uncompromising integrity of craftsmanship.

The new Globe-Trotter collection of luggage, bags and travel accessories highlights the excitement of travelling the world with style and sophistication, yet blends this with a warm nostalgia for the romanticism of travel. It will be available in-store and online from February 2017.
