Globe-Trotter X Edward Green
With a busy programme of global travel, we’re particularly partial to a fine suitcase at Edward Green. When you arrive, you want to arrive in style, with your shoes properly taken care of.
Globe-Trotter make the world’s finest cases just outside of London at their workshop in Hertfordshire. They have an illustrious history, having supplied their inimitable vulcanised cases to Queen Elizabeth II for her Scottish honeymoon, and Sir Edmund Hillary, for his Everest expedition.
Together, we thought that it would be fascinating to collaborate and create a case for Edward Green shoes. Globe-Trotter unearthed an early twentieth century shoe-case in their wonderfully extensive archive; this would form the inspiration for the trunk. We cut our calfskin for the case’s corners and handle, antiquing the skin for that unmistakeable Edward Green patina. And Globe-Trotter’s artisans then hand-made the case finishing the interior in our signature green.
The result is a handsome case in which to stow shoes but also - as we raised glasses of wine together and with our customers on Albemarle Street - a celebration of our craftspeople and their commitment to detail, shared values which have served both companies well and are at the heart of all we do.
