Visit Greater Palm Springs announced the release of its first-ever, destination-inspired luggage line thanks to a partnership with luxury British brand Globe-Trotter. The partnership consists of three luggage pieces: a check-in case, carry-on case and an attaché, as well as two luggage tags, one large and one small. The line also includes a Palm Springs-designed leather sticker.
“We’re proud that our destination, with its unmistakable desert oasis and iconic midcentury architecture, serves as the inspiration for the Palm Springs Collection,” said Scott White, CEO and president, Visit Greater Palm Springs. “Globe-Trotter’s new luxury line will inspire future travelers to visit Greater Palm Springs and discover all that our region has to offer.”
Drawing inspiration from the colors of the Palm Springs desert and aesthetics of Palm Springs’ many Midcentury Modern architectural designs, the new line sees a cream-colored base on all three luggage pieces. The neutral base captures the essences of the desert mountains, with accents of yellow and blue incorporated throughout the different luggage pieces to reflect the endless sunshine and the sparkling pools found throughout Palm Springs.
In addition to the launch of this exclusive luggage line, Visit Greater Palm Springs plans to further collaborate with Globe-Trotter on a series of global launch events and activations in London, Tokyo, West Hollywood and Palm Springs throughout the rest of the year.
