Globe Trotter Celebrates an icon

Posted by Imran 18/04/2017 0 Comment(s) Kensington Bespoke,

What do James Bond and The Queen have in common? Primarily, they’re both quintessentially British icons, recognised the world over. But that’s only half way there. So what’s the missing piece of the puzzle? Although one fictional and one a real monarch, they’re both known appreciators of this month’s brand, available from Kensington Bespoke.

Globe-Trotter was founded in 1897 in Saxony, Germany by an Englishman named David Nelken. In 1932, Globe-Trotter moved to the UK, where it has remained ever since. Today, Globe-Trotter products embody British craftsmanship, dressed in a traditional aesthetic and a timeless approach to style.

The Foxley Docket invites you to celebrate Globe-Trotter products – but not just any Globe-Trotter bag. 2016 makes 80 years since the first flight of the Spitfire, a single seat fighter aircraft utilised by the RAF and a number of other countries before, during and after the Second World War.  The Spitfire, designed by R.J Mitchell of Supermarine, took its first flight on March 5th, 1936, and had a top speed of 584km per hour and a wingspan of 11 metres.

The Globe-Trotter Spitfire Special Edition is dressed in a war-like camouflage aesthetic, complete with a sky blue interior to represent the British icon’s ascension amongst the clouds of old. This is complemented by a number of glittering chrome fittings. Utilising the endlessly talented hands of Globe-Trotter craftsmen and women, the Globe-Trotter Spitfire Special Edition is lovingly made by hand, utilising only the finest materials.

The Globe-Trotter Spitfire Special Edition is sure to turn heads as you cruise through the airport or ferry or simply from destination to destination and is certainly a guaranteed conversation piece for luxury luggage connoisseurs and British history enthusiasts alike.

The Globe-Trotter Spitfire Special Edition sits on a more-than-justified price tag of £1,490.00, with Kensington Bespoke only allowing customers to buy one per order only, due to the piece’s exclusive and highly sought after nature.
