Editor’s Pick: Globe-Trotter’s New Leather Luggage Collection

201110-b-globetrotterjpg

If you like Globe-Trotter luggage as much as some of us, you’ll love this: for the first time in its 114-year history, the British brand, known for creating vulcanized fiberboard cases (Sirs Winston Churchill and Edmund Hilary would attest to their durability), has launched a collection of discreetly stylish carry-ons, totes, and accessories all handcrafted using—wait for it!—super-soft leather.

No big deal, you say? Well, considering that the company has never before strayed from its traditional hard-sided design, we beg to differ.

Each bag comes in black, navy, olive, or tan, with rivets to reinforce the natural-grain hides, plus removable shoulder straps. The travel wallets, luggage tags, and (for the London-bound) oyster card holders are equally timeless.

Bags from $690, accessories from $80.
