Those of you who enjoy regular jaunts around the world as much as we do, will understand the importance of quality luggage that can stand the test of time as well as look good, as there are few things more irritating than seeing your beautiful brand-new suitcase emerging on the carousel after its inaugural flight, looking like an overly adored family heirloom.
So when Globe-Trotter asked us to curate an retrospective exhibition celebrating its rich heritage, we jumped at the chance of supporting a company we admire not just for its highly covetable suitcases, but also for its obvious understanding of the importance of both form and function in luggage.
Last night, London's Scream Gallery hosted the preview of the Globe-Trotter 110th Anniversary Retrospective, before it travels to Tokyo for its Design Week opening on 31 October. The exhibition has been curated by Wallpaper’s Photography Editor James Reid, who rummaged through the Globe-Trotter archives and hand-picked a series of images that best illustrate and commemorate the evolution of the illustrious Globe-Trotter brand. The exhibition also offers an exclusive preview of the next generation 'onehundred&ten' travel case designed by Ross Lovegrove.
But don't worry if you can't make it to Tokyo for the exhibition, as we are showing a selection of the images here exclusively on wallpaper.com
