Globe-Trotter is proud to unveil a capsule collection in partnership with the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust to mark the 90th birthday of Her Majesty The Queen, the trust’s Royal Patron.
Handcrafted in Hertfordshire, the collection is inspired by QEST’s royal patronage with the suitcases being created from glossy, Royal Claret fibreboard to match The Queen’s personal Range Rover and helicopter. The leather straps have been edged in gold ink and the cases are finished with gold hardware and a plaque featuring the QEST and Globe-Trotter logos.
The cases have been lined with exquisite, Suffolk-made Gainsborough silk in the same design as the upholstery inside the Scottish State Coach; a gift to the royal family from the Earl of Albemarle in 1920.
The capsule collection comprises a leather luggage tag, 9” jewellery box, 18” trolley case, 21” trolley case, 26” trolley case and 30” extra deep suitcase.
