You've got the Aston Martin DB5, the dinner suit is ready to be packed and you're headed for cocktails – shaken, not stirred – in Monte Carlo. Now Globe-Trotter has the ideal luggage for your trip. Like Bond himself, it's proudly British-made, and, like his DB5, built not only to endure whatever your travels throw at it, but to exude a subtle and sure sense of style.
Globe-Trotter's new range is designed in collaboration with No Time To Die, Daniel Craig's last outing as James Bond, due to be released this year. Traditional in style, on-trend with 'Ocean Green’ available as a new colourway and innovative in features such as a ground-breaking four-wheel design on trolley bags, the range aims to reflect the history of James Bond and of Globe-Trotter's association with the films, this being the third such collaboration since Skyfall in 2012.
"It’s so important that a Globe-Trotter case remains true to its roots by keeping its iconic identity," says Charlotte Seddon, designer at the company. "It must remain stylish, elegant and simple in design." Bond is in good company in selecting Globe-Trotter. Among other distinguished clients are the Queen, who chose Globe-Trotter to convey her outfits on her honeymoon in 1947 and Winston Churchill who had a Globe-Trotter dispatch case.
Each piece in the new range is hand-crafted to exacting standards – using techniques dating back to Victorian times – at Globe-Trotter's studios in Hertfordshire. "There’s an unquestionable essentiality – of elegance, luxury, worldliness – that is inherent in Globe-Trotter pieces," says No Time To Die costume designer Suttirat Anne Larlarb. "It is precisely that essentiality that makes Globe-Trotter the intuitive choice for Bond’s aesthetic and character." If it's good enough for Bond, it's more than good enough for us. Now, where's the Beretta?
