Fast-emerging as London’s favourite womenswear and accessories designer, Sophie Hulme is known for understatedly chic bags. Recently, she teamed up with the iconic luggage brand Globe-Trotter for a second time adding new sizes and injecting more colour along with her sharp, modern aesthetic to her existing range for them. As she said in an interview with Vogue UK: ‘Globe-Trotter is such a great company that I didn’t want to see the collaborations end after just one season’. For the first time in Globe-Trotter’s history, Hulme re-designed the handle for her Autumn/Winter 2012 collection (pictured below) to include her signature brass hardware. Each piece is completed with a signature striped silk lining, coordinating with Hulme’s ready-to-wear collection.
