As well as making
expensive exclusive shoes, Rupert Sanderson also sells some very impressive retro-styled luggage.
Here’s the tale – last year Rupert found an old established family run luggage manufacturer just north of Milan. Rather than buying some, he approached the company with the idea of making a small collection of cases and bags, not unlike the old-style steamer trunks.
So here it is – made from cream velum (bleached kid skin) and, in the case of the ridged models, stretched over lightweight wooded frames. All the pieces are edged and are available in a choice of 22 different colours of leather.
It’s also made to order, so expect to wait two months. And the price? Well, let’s just say if you need to ask, you might need to consider other options.
