Globe-Trotter is delighted to unveil a whimsical new collection with Disney Suitcases – it's kind of magic.
Even the most ardent Disney fan – of any age – may not be aware that the company’s mascot and most famous character celebrates his birthday on 18 November. Technically, this date commemorates the release of Mickey Mouse’s first on-screen appearance in the 1928 classic Steamboat Willie. Decades later, Mickey’s global appeal as the face (and ears) of Disney has never been stronger.
To celebrate this milestone birthday, Globe-Trotter is proud to unveil its most enchanting collection to date this winter.
‘Disney: This Bag Contains Magic’ is a brand-new collection released this November that captures the abundant charm and whimsy of Mickey Mouse and the Disney universe. Colourful and playful, yet elegant and stylish, the suitcase designs pay subtle homage to classic Hollywood Disney of the 1920s and 30s. This is most apparent with a recurring black and white Mickey motif, as well as the suitcase lining in a print made up of vintage-style stickers and sketches featuring Mickey and his friends.
The iconic Globe-Trotter Centenary Suitcase with its leather straps and corners is given a subtle nod to Mickey with a single red leather corner with hand-pressed brass rivets in reference to the character’s iconic gold buttoned red trousers. This charming detail appears on every suitcase, as does a special leather Mickey patch embossed with the words ‘this bag contains magic’.
On the Centenary Carry-On Suitcases and Check-In Suitcases in Black / Black, a hand-drawn illustration of Mickey adorns the exterior, with his hands and arms outstretched. It is one of Disney’s most joyful sketches and selected from the company’s extensive archives.
And it’s not just suitcases that make up this exciting new collection. The comprehensive range also includes Storage Boxes and the smaller Messenger Case and London Square Bags. It means that whatever you choose from the collection – large or small – a little bit of magic will be with you on every journey.
The ‘Disney: This Bag Contains Magic’ collection is available in-store and online from Thursday 11th November 2021.
