Starwood’s Luxury Collection Partners Globe-Trotter for Suitcase Collection

Starwood’s Luxury Collection has partnered with British luxury luggage brand Globe-Trotter for an exclusive, limited-edition suitcase collection.

Imagined by designer and creative director Sofia Sanchez de Betak, the collection is inspired by her recent summer vacation in Greece, where she experienced four Luxury Collection hotels: Santa Marina in Mykonos, The Romanos in Costa Navarino, Hotel Grande Bretagne in Athens and Vedema and Mystique in Santorini.

“As a creative force, fashion muse, and world traveler, Sofia embodies the values and spirit of a global explorer, and like our guests, she is a traveler who truly understands and personifies experiential luxury,” said Meredith Dichter, Global Brand Director, The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts. “Our hotels and resorts define their destinations, and we are thrilled that our portfolio in Greece inspired Sofia to create this one-of-a-kind luggage collection for Globe-Trotter.”

The four unique pieces of luggage include: ‘Santorini’, ‘Mykonos’, ‘Athena’ and ‘Messinia’.

Influenced by Greece’s characteristic colors, the collection’s exterior features shades of blue and white, accented by touches of black as well as Globe-Trotter’s iconic handmade leather trim and gold hardware.

The interior of each piece is lined with cotton linen and features a colorfully illustrated scavenger map of the destination of which it was inspired, highlighting the hidden treasures and off-the-beaten-path experiences that Sofia discovered while exploring The Luxury Collection’s destinations in Greece.

“For me, traveling is a treasure hunt - I love exploring new places and creating my own memorable experiences,” said Sofia Sanchez de Betak. “For the design of this luggage collection, I wanted to create a scavenger hunt map inspired by my trip to Greece for fellow travelers to follow. A combination of insider tips from The Luxury Collection concierges and personal recommendations from locals and experts allowed me to curate the ‘must sees’ on my maps for global explorers to find!”

The individual luggage pieces retail for USD $2,005. The limited-edition luggage collection comes in one size, 22x15x8”, and each piece was made with wheels and a retractable handle for practical travel.
