SO­PHIE HULME

Fea­tured in our Town and Coun­try trend piece (page 14), this vin­tagestyle trunk case is part of So­phie Hulme’s A/W12 col­lec­tion for the lux­ury lug­gage la­bel Globe-Trot­ter. The British womenswear and ac­ces­sories de­signer, called “one of Lon­don’s bright­est tal­ents” by the Daily Tele­graph, was given the task of redesign­ing the iconic Globe-Trot­ter han­dle – the first per­son to do so in the com­pany’s 113-year his­tory. The re­sults, with the han­dle en­cased in the brass hard­ware that has be­come her sig­na­ture, is a re­flec­tion of Hulme’s no­tably min­i­mal­ist style. The in­te­rior of the cases have a striped silk lin­ing, and each comes with a leather and brass lug­gage tag. The col­lec­tion is pro­duced in three colour ways: ivory/nat­u­ral, navy/navy and navy/bur­gundy. All pieces are hand­made on Vic­to­rian ma­chin­ery at the Globe-Trot­ter fac­tory in Hert­ford­shire, Eng­land.
