PURSUITS
Clockwise from below left:
the Grand Tourer trunk;
woodwork in the studio;
the trunk open, with
drawers, cases and hangers;
Callum Robinson and
Marisa Gianasi; a bespoke
cabinet made for Johnnie
Walker’s master blender
are on show in elegant surrounds.
“We’re trying to be as sustainable,
responsible and as local as we can be,”
Robinson says. “That’s important if
you’re also producing things that are as
luxurious, ostentatious and as privileged
as some of the things we’re making. We
have to be humble about it.”
As rooted in home and the Scottish
landscape as their work is, it’s travel
that remains the principle inspiration
for a couple who are as fanatical about
their own luggage when on tour.
“It’s usually considerably more
expensive than what’s in it – we’re
obsessive about it,” Robinson says. On
which note, he has a tip for the truly
dedicated traveller. “What you’re really
looking for is for the guys at security to
compliment your luggage. They see so
much of it, if they think it’s cool, you
know you’re doing something right.”
A £26,000 trunk ought to do that.
