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.”

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.
