However, I have found something which has been around for years but I never knew about. Alexander McQueen, in 2006 (I think...), worked with Samsonite Black Label to create luggage.
I love the pieces, although I find them slightly creepy. Although that does sort of describe McQueens general style- creepy. He loves to push the limits. There are more in the collection, including the limited edition silver ones pictured below. I don't like those so much- the silver distracts from the form.
I really love the white tortoiseshell suitcase though- I saw one in the flesh and its pretty nifty with a beautiful patterning on the inside, plenty of compartments (pictured above), and I like the similarity to a tortoise.
My favourite part about the collection however is the personal touch- McQueen's own fingerprint on the zipper (below) makes me desperate to bag one of my own. (I'll have to add it to the White and Navy classic Mcqueen Silk scarf I just bought ;) )
Anyway more updates coming soon... I must go now.. I'm completely exhausted with jet lag :(
