Alexander McQueen has just made everyone’s day a little better by announcing a new partnership with the renowned English manufacturer of luggage, Globe-Trotter, for an exquisite set of travel suitcases.
Meant to celebrate the best of both worlds, the limited-edition luggage collection will be available in Alexander McQueen’s stores in London, Paris, Hong Kong, Singapore, China and USA, and it will include a 13″ mini utility case and a 21″ trolley case, each of them entirely handmade in England, following the original manufacturing methods Globe-Trotter has been known for ever since 1897.
Priced at $1,415, the 13″ mini utility case by Alexander McQueen and Globe-Trotter is joined by the $3,295 21” trolley case, both of them created with the aid of vulcanized fiberboard with leather corners. Strong and durable, these lightweight travel companions are extremely functional, while also representing a bold fashion statement.
Alexander McQueen’s signature style is obvious thanks to the skull padlock and bridge, not to mention the iconic ivory and black skull print. Furthermore, the Alexander McQueen logo has been etched onto the metal buckle of the leather strap and the interior of the cases as well.
If you like what you see, you’ll have to hurry up, because these beautiful things are not meant to come in large numbers.
