Globe-Trotter Luggage — By Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen

Globe+Trotter+1200x900px+(1)

Wrote Guy Trebay in the New York Times:

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Made by hand of vulcanized fiberboard over an ash frame, these suitcases are essentially unchanged since the company was founded in England in 1897.

Queen Elizabeth used them on her honeymoon; Diana, Princess of Wales, carried her hats in them; the Duke of Edinburgh uses them exclusively.

They're lightweight, boxy, and expensive, and so aggressively nondescript they're favored not only by nobility, but also by a sizable number of world-class designers and stylists.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Apply within.
