Bruce Hoeksema, Asprey's newly appointed creative director, has designed every detail and aspect of this luggage collection, from colour and finish to selecting the metals used on the fittings. The size and shape of the rivets and nails were thought through as well as the signature Asprey lock that fastens all Asprey leather products. All the cases are lined with chic durable hemp linen with a leather hand stamped Asprey label. The hand stitched crocodile corners are chosen to match the classic stripe of the removable webbed luggage straps that secure the suitcases. The moulded vulcan fibreboard, used by Globe-Trotter over 100 years, creates an extraordinary strong structure while the metallic finish of the exterior give the pieces a modern sheen.

Available in two colour ways: metallic purple with purple crocodile trim; and matte black with oxidized metallic corners and black crocodile trim.

    All pieces may be personalised.
    The Asprey Londoner collection contains five luggage options/sizes:
    Trolley 18", 21"and suitcase 28", 30", 33".
    The Asprey Londoner will be available in stores from October 2010.
