Traveling in Bond Style

Christina Garofalo

Inspired by James Bond’s signature style and his cleverly concealed spy accessories, the British luggage brand Globe-Trotter has created a series of travel items, some featuring hidden secrets. A standout design is a replica of the bespoke rifle case used in the newest Bond film, Skyfall—a slim black aluminum suitcase with a functional telescopic rifle sight built into the handle. The case is 26 inches long, lightweight, and easy to tote. It has an interior plaque with a serial number that certifies each case as one of just 100 pieces (about $6,500 apiece).

The special-edition luggage collection, produced in partnership with the James Bond franchise, ranges from a slim attaché to a rolling suitcase (about $1,150 to $1,900), each bearing chrome locks. A collection of small leather goods includes luggage tags, passport covers, wallets, and more (about $95 to $600). The new collections are available at the Globe-Trotter flagship store in London and through the company’s website. (+44.20.7529.5950, www.globetrotter1897.com)
