Globe-Trotter Special Suitcase in Archives Inspires SS 2017 Collection

globe-trotter - eat love savor luxury lifestyle magazine

Luggage silently carries the stories of the places its been, living on in the memories those who own it, and is represented in the treasured keepsakes collected during their travels.

An extraordinary suitcase that recently found its way into the Globe-Trotter archive has provided the source of inspiration for the spring/summer 2017 collection that was wearing its stories.

The unassuming exterior of the original 1960s trunk belies the captivating secret concealed within: a beautiful collection of over 50 travel stickers from all around the globe.

These stickers and the memories they carry, of a time when travel was very glamorous – flights where travelers were dressed for the occasion, service was very personal, the food was fine and traveling by air, was an a big part of the trip itself.

From Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires to Singapore and Tokyo, from Rome and Beirut to Honolulu and New York, the case travelled the world with its owner Hilary Farish, a BOAC air hostess between 1960 – 69.

Globe-Trotter’s designer, Charlotte Seddon, has taken strong, angular shapes from the midcentury graphics on the stickers and reinterpreted them as contemporary bags and accessories in fresh, summery tones of Desert Rose, Marine, Clay Grey and Peony. The stickers also appear as suitcase and bag linings and as leather patches hand-appliquéd onto passport sleeves and folios.
