Globe-Trotter, the suitcase manufacturer, has collaborated with brands and designers alike to unveil cases that are stunning and worthy of praise. Its recent partnership is with London’s only family-owned five-star hotel – The Goring, through which the brand has launched a collection of travel trunks, which has been handcrafted at the Globe-Trotter factory in Hertfordshire. Made from Ivory vulcanized fiberboard, The Goring Hotel Special Edition collection sports the hotel’s signature palette – burgundy and navy-used for the leather trim.
The insides of the case have been lined with rich damask silk, a miniature of the silk wall covering used in the Drawing Room of The Royal Suite at The Goring. “The historic silk has been specially woven to order from The Gainsborough Silk Company, the Royal Warrant-holding Suffolk textile mill.”
The Goring Hotel Special Edition collection is available in a variety of sizes ranging from a 9″ Mini Utility £485 ($745) to a 33″ Extra Deep Suitcase with Wheels £1,680 ($2,575).
Available on sale now, The Goring Hotel Special Edition collection can be purchased from the Globe-Trotter flagship store in the Burlington Arcade, London.
David Morgan-Hewitt, Managing Director of The Goring, says, “I have been lucky enough to be the proud owner of a set of Globe-Trotter cases for many years. I noticed that many of our guests shared my love of them as they arrived in the lobby, so this feels like a natural partnership. The Goring has always championed British craftsmanship and history, so we are thrilled to be working with Globe-Trotter to create a little bit of England to take home – and abroad!”
Gary Bott, Creative Director of Globe-Trotter, mentions, “The Globe-Trotter Goring Hotel edition, resplendent with silk from The Royal Suite, looks wonderful and captures the essence of our two companies. These suitcases are timelessly stylish – and will just get better and better with age, as they become much-loved travel companions.”
