Normally, if I say someone is carrying some major flash Samsonite, I mean that they have big emotional baggage, and watch me run the opposite direction.
The hero piece in the collection takes design inspiration from the human rib cage. McQueen took a molud of a male torso and began to work from there. “The human ribcage protects our vital organs as we move about in the world. Luggage takes on the same role as we travel and pack our worldly possessions inside for safe transport,” said McQueen at the Samsonite launch of his new collection. Available in bone, black and chocolate brown the hero piece boasts a ribcage and sternum outline in the front, and a backbone on the back.
