British luxury luggage manufacturer Globe-Trotter have teamed up with renowned manufacturer of photography equipment, Fujifilm to create a limited edition X-Pro1 camera and case. London’s world-famous Harrods will offer it to celebrate the opening of its new 22,000 square foot technology department.
Limited edition case for the Fujifilm X-Pro1 is handmade on Globe-Trotter’s original Victorian machinery with special Vulcan Fibre which is traditionally formed from 14 layers of specially bonded colored paper. It features brass rivets, locks, tan leather, and finished with Harrods Exclusively embossed leather tags and brass plaques.
When approached by Fujifilm to produce a bespoke limited-edition case for the X-Pro1, exclusively for Harrods, we were very excited, said Gary Bott, creative director at Globe-Trotter. The combination of a traditional suitcase with the X-Pro1 camera, a piece of modern technology at its finest, is something new and exciting for our heritage brand. As well as this, Harrods is one of our oldest customers, and it is where Queen Elizabeth II purchased her Globe-Trotter suitcases for her honeymoon, so it is always a pleasure to work with them.
Each case includes an X-Pro1 camera, the flash, filter, and three lenses and lens hoods – 18mm, 35mm and 60mm.
David Bland, product manager at Fujifilm, said: The X-Pro1 marries incredible photographic performance with classic design. We have long been a fan of Globe-Trotter’s stunning range of cases so we are delighted to be collaborating with them for this worldwide exclusive for Harrods.
Limited to just 12 units worldwide Globe-Trotter Fujifilm X-Pro1 Case is available exclusively at Harrods Technology for £5,695 (approximately $9,000).
