With London Fashion Week rolling into town today, there are no shortage of exciting style happenings across the capital. Among the many projects and collaborations is this limited-edition Candy trunk by Globe Trotter, launching this Friday 13th in the Burlington Arcade flagship store and only available in London or via mail order.
Handcrafted at the brand’s factory in Hertfordshire, the Candy is made from hit-pink vulcanised fibreboard, trimmed in burgundy leather and finished with chrome hardware. What’s more, the playful ‘Queue for the Zoo’ lining has been made by team at Liberty and the elephant motif makes reference to a fun Globe Trotter story: In 1912 the brand undertook a strength test on one of its trunks at the Zoological Gardens in Hamburg. The trunk successfully bore the weight of a 1-ton elephant! Now that’s what we call quality.
Head down to Burlington Arcade to check out the Candy and other designs from the collection, including the 13” Vanity Case, £495, 21” Trolley Case, £1,045 and 30” Suitcase with Wheels, £1,285.
