Item Description

With a mutual respect for artisanal techniques, Alexander McQueen and Globe-Trotter share a common value for craftsmanship. This limited edition collaboration unites two brands that are synonymous with great British design. The cases follow the original manufacturing methods established by Globe-Trotter in 1897. Using vulcanized fiberboard with leather corners, they are strong and durable yet lightweight and functional.

Alexander McQueen has added their design touch to the iconic Globe-Trotter cases by introducing silver studs and riveting as an all-over decoration. This signature detailing from the house continues on the black leather strap that wraps around the body of the suitcase, a unique design feature which offers added security. The strap is secured using a skull padlock. A black leather clochette encases two sets of keys for the padlock. The case is lined using the signature ivory and black skull print. The rear of the case features an extendable trolley system with a black wooden handle with metallic rivets. Handmade in England and produced in limited quantities.
