Globe-Trotter – 35 Albemarle Street

Synonymous with high quality travel cases Globe-Trotter has been serving the international globe trotting set for over 100 years. Making Mayfair the new home for it’s new London flagship store, the brand hopes to bring a fuller experience to customers by showcasing their luxury suitcases. There will be an enhanced bespoke service available at the new flagship, where VIP customers will be welcomed into the Bespoke Lounge where they can discuss their personal tastes and requirements. The service allows customers to create unique luggage from an array of sizes, colours and finishes.

“The dream was to develop collections of beautiful and relevant leather goods to stand beside our iconic suitcases and create a true stand alone Globe-Trotter retail concept. 35 Albemarle Street is the culmination of that dream.”

Jeff Vaughan, Globe-Trotter Chairman

Naturally, to celebrate the opening of the new store, Globe-Trotter are releasing an Albemarle Edition suitcase range that will be available exclusively to the store. Alongside the Albemarle Edition, it will also house the entire Jet and Propellor collections which are handmade in their Herefordshire factory. Blending their rich heritage and craftsmanship, Globe-Trotter’s new flagship lends a nod to their direction of embracing innovation and contemporary design.
