Candy Limited Edition
Globe-Trotter has launched an updated Candy Limited Edition, featuring ‘Queue for the Zoo’ lining – a fun and quirky Liberty print featuring a hidden surprise alongside the iconic Globe-Trotter elephant. The Candy Limited Edition is hand crafted from Hot Pink vulcanised fibreboard, with rich Burgundy leather trim and finished with Chrome hardware. Open the case to discover the playful Liberty print, in shades of Pink and Purple to perfectly complement the external suitcase colours. The ‘Queue for the Zoo’ print features an array of animals, including an elephant – Globe-Trotter’s unofficial mascot. Back in 1912 Globe- Trotter undertook a strength test on one of their trunks at the Zoological Gardens, Hamburg. The trunk successfully bore the weight of a 1-ton elephant, highlighting the strength of Globe-Trotter’s luggage. The collection is available in a range of sizes, including 13″ Vanity Case £500, 21″ Trolley Case £995 and 30″ Extra Deep Suitcase with Wheels £1,235. For more information, or to place and order, please contact the store by clicking here.
The Voyage edition is Globe-Trotter’s first Purple case, and sits perfectly alongside the vibrant Candy edition. The Voyage series was released to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Globe-Trotter’s first Limited Edition featuring a Liberty print lining. Each case in the Voyage collection is lined with the iconic ‘Hera’ peacock feather print. Liberty debuted ‘Hera’ back in the 1890s, and was originally sold as a furnishing fabric; today it is one of their most iconic prints. The tones embodied in the print act as a perfect complement to the exterior of the case. Voyage is the perfect choice for those who ooze luxury and glamour, favouring bold and powerful colours that make them stand out from the crowd. Voyage, in name and spirit, harks back to the early days of global travel, where the elite travelled the world with a mountain of luggage, navigating their journey with an army of porters. Prices range from £470 for the 9” Mini Utility to £1,410 for the 33” Extra Deep Suitcase with Wheels.
