A Case For Glamour: Globe Trotter x Erdem Luggage

Erdem and Globe-Trotter get together for a second carrier-case collaboration

Remember the era when women wore tweed suits and pillbox hats to travel? Well, sadly, we don’t either. Even if you belong to the utilitarian black nylon wheelie generation, take heart, you can still evoke the days when glamour and travel weren’t mutually exclusive. London-based Canadian fashion supernaturalist Erdem has once again teamed up with heritage luggage purveyor Globe-Trotter. Their steam whistle-worthy leather travel cases are all lined with Erdem’s distinctive ‘Ottaker Flutter’ silk twill print from his Fall collection. Even if you don’t have a trip in the works, the Vanity Case would enliven any boudoir. We think it would make a prime display case for closet curiosities, say, Grandma’s kid gloves, the costume jewels you found at the Paris flea market and ornate evening heels you’ve been saving for the right occasion. And even if none of these gems lurk in your wardrobe, this case could spark the beginning of your heirloom collection.
