    Default Samsonite Black Label by Alexander McQueen


    The upscale Alexander McQueen collection features a wheeled case that takes on the imprint of a human torso and a crocodile-skin textured design


    Commmenting on the new collection, McQueen said: "I was really inspired by the idea of developing my own take on luggage – to be able to rise to the challenge of working in a new arena. And I am always interested in learning from new technical expertise.”

    Samsonite President and CEO Marcello Bottoli added: “Samsonite is a company with a rich heritage and design sensibility that has come to redefine the whole concept of travel design. This collection showcases the innovation and luxury inherent in the Samsonite Black Label brand.”

    Travel pieces

    The AI1 wheeled luggage model takes on the imprint of a human torso with the ribcage and sternum outlined at the front of the case and the backbone on the back. This striking effect is echoed in the interior with a negative of the ribs represented in a soft moulded form.

    The AI2 case has a crocodile-skin textured pattern. Both pieces are lined with a soft feather print and are available in black and bone colours.

    Travel bags and accessories

    The travel bag collection includes a beauty case, garment bag and two boarding bags (male and female). Featuring fluid, curvaceous shapes, the collection uses a combination of plain and crocodile printed leather and ottoman fabric.

    Also available are a leather travel wallet, a crocodile print passport holder and a name tag with key holder. A TSA padlock completes the collection.

    Samsonite Black Label store openings

    Samsonite Black Label has recently opened stores in London (Sloane Street and Royal Exchange), Berlin (Friedrichstrasse), Brussels (Boulevard de Waterloo), Moscow (GUM), Seoul (Cheong Dam-Dong), Singapore (Raffles Hotel) Kuwait City, and Mumbai (Grand Hyatt), in New York (Madison Avenue), Tokyo (Ginza) with imminent openings in San Francisco (Union Square) and Boston (Copley Place).

    Alexander McQueen has three flagship stores, London, Milan and New York, and franchises in Istanbul; Japan and Russia are in the pipeline. The brand is also represented in many of the world’s most influential department stores.

    I don't know, the rib one is kind of gross to me, but at the same time I also think that it is a cool idea
