"Stabilist" 20" iPad Suitcase in Brown/Caramel
Greg Chapman and Gary Bott met at Capsule Paris in 2010 and it was like at first sight. Both shared similar views on finely crafted heritage product and decided as they were both from the same part of the world (the north of England) they would probably be good friends. Following a cup of tea at the Globe Trotter Store in London's Burlington Arcade, Greg picked up a Safari Air Cabin Case and flew over to New York to re-launch the Perfecto brand. Fast forward to Fast forward to 2011 and a conversation at Café Gitane led to the idea of improving on the case Greg had been traveling with for the last year. Whilst the aesthetics, lightness and durability of the product were all good wouldn't it be just dandy if there was a way to secure his iPad in the lid perhaps using Globe-Trotter’s signature leather straps?
Several sketches later the “Stabilist” iPad Case was born.
In 1912, the Stabilist series were bespoke manufactured Globe-Trotter luggage that featured special functionality for the Victorian traveler; such as wardrobe trunks, hat and shoe cases for travel by horse drawn carriage, rail and cruise liner. Much of the original machinery required to produce the Stabilist line was melted down during the World War for use as ammunition and so a piece of Globe-Trotter history was sadly lost. Also, as modern travel demands changed so did the requirement for simpler, more compact and lighter weight luggage; better suited for the age of commercial air travel; returning full circle 100-‐years on to 2012 with a historical re-‐launch. This newly released Stabilist will retail exclusively at Mohawk General Store.
