Eddie Redmayne was pictured at Los Angeles airport a while ago, arriving for the Academy Awards 2013. I love looking at people's luggage, part voyeuristic, part obsessed with the notion of voyages and modern day aviation travel. Eddie opted for something old and something new, mixing a gorgeous vintage hand held Globe-Trotter case, with a modern and sturdy Rimowa black hard case check in luggage. I am quite honestly, obsessed with Globe-Trotter luggages. It has that gorgeous old school look, but now tweaked slightly (with handles and wheels) for modern day travel. I even wished my hard case luggage would wear out sooner so I can justify an investment in a large check-in sized Globe-Trotter.

Rimowa luggages have long been renowned for their sturdiness. I believed Eddie chose the classic black 78cm "Topas Multiwheel". My personal favourite would be the one in silver though, that seemed to have a lot more oomph to it.

New this week at Mr Porter are these gorgeous Rimowa luggages, and exclusive Globe-Trotter hand held cases made for the online retailer. No reason not to travel in style and practicality anymore. Do you travel with Rimowa and/or Globe-Trotter luggages? Would love to hear your thoughts and opinions.

  1. I know John Taylor from Duran Duran travels with the full set of Globe Trotter cases. Made a Fashion Ed feel very shabby with her Delsey case at an Italian airport!

  2. I recently purchased a Rimowa and was also considering Globe Trotter...if Globe Trotter had 4 wheels, I would buy it in a heartbeat. It's just not practical if you are a heavy traveller and you lug around a 2 wheeler.
