Luggage silently carries the stories of the places its been, living on in the memories those who own it, and is represented in the treasured keepsakes collected during their travels. An extraordinary suitcase that recently found its way into the Globe-Trotter archive has provided the source of inspiration for the spring/summer 2017 collection that was wearing its stories.

These stickers and the memories they carry, of a time when travel was very glamorous – flights where travelers were dressed for the occasion, service was very personal, the food was fine and traveling by air, was an a big part of the trip itself. From Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires to Singapore and Tokyo, from Rome and Beirut to Honolulu and New York,…
