Home or Away – Troubadour X Sunspel

OK so international travel might not be too of our agenda at the moment, or even, some might say, recommended right just now. But hey, what about a Staycation?!?! the Easter break is right around the corner and why not whisk them away to somewhere not too far from home ?

Now, if your luggage has seen better days and is looking a bit more shabby than chic. Here’s a story for you, Troubadour and Sunspel, two leading brands in contemporary British design, have worked together and are introducing a new limited-edition range of bags in a specially developed lightweight waterproof fabric.

The new technical canvas combines two inspirations: Sunspel’s long heritage of producing beautiful natural cotton fabrics and the technical performance of Troubadour bags. This means the fabric has a natural look and feel, while also being waterproof and extremely hard-wearing.

Three styles of bag have been made in the new fabric, in a limited edition of 30 pieces each: the Pathfinder Briefcase, Troubadour Tote, and Slipstream Rucksack. The deep navy fabric creates a stunning contrast with the bags’ brushed silver hardware.

“Troubadour’s clean designs, functionality and exceptional build quality speak volumes to me and I’ve personally been a customer for over 5 years, long before I first met Samuel and Abel. Sunspel and Troubadour share a great many values and we’re delighted with this collaboration with another respected and dynamic British company. The Sunspel customer loves to travel and the Troubadour customer loves timeless style – and this collection brings those elements together perfectly.

Nicholas Brooke, Sunspel CEO

All three bags are not just stylish, but comfortable. Lightweight, yet durable. Versatile, and waterproof.

Every detail has been carefully thought through – from shoulder straps engineered to eliminate pressure points, to electro-moulded panels that follow the curves of the body. They all feature the signature clean lines and performance-based design. There are super-smooth zippers, pockets for anything you need to keep handy (including a padded pocket that holds a 16-inch laptop), super-comfy shoulder straps, and handles made from vegetable-tanned Italian leather.
