Samsonite Black Label has teamed up with British designer Alexander McQueen to create a line of luxury luggage and travel accessories. Drawing inspiration from the human physique, the collection includes a suitcase shaped from an imprint of a human torso, with the ribcage outlined on the front of the case and the spine on the back (left, in jet black). The pulley suitcase is also available in an embossed crocodile-pattern style (left, in bone white). The range includes carry-on bags (left, in bone white), beauty cases (left, in jet black), garment bags plus accessories such as name tags and passport covers. For travel security, choose the egg-shaped padlock (above) bearing the insignias of Samsonite and McQueen.
