Starwoods 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
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 Greeces characteristic colors,
the collections exterior features shades of blue and white,
accented by touches of black as well as Globe-Trotters 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 Collections 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.
