Louis Vuitton Horizon Luggage
First launched in 2016 by Marc Newson, one of today’s most influential industrial designers, the Horizon collection represents a turning point for the storied maison thanks to its innovative design, robust construction, and exceptional usefulness. The ultra-lightweight luggage in moulded mesh composite is decorated in either the House’s Monogram or Damier design and trimmed with natural cowhide. As a trunk maker with years of experience, Louis Vuitton’s savoir faire comes through in the details of the iconic trunks. This is spotlighted on the trolley system — silent, miniature wheels with 360 degrees of directionality. The luggage interior is also carefully thought out, where its flat-bottomed space optimises packing space.
In a new travel campaign called “Horizons Never End”, football world champion Lionel Messi only has his Horizon suitcase with him. Messi may be seen sitting in an airport terminal with his legs spread out on his Horizon rolling cabin luggage in a sequence of still photos taken by fashion photographer and videographer Glen Luchford. In another image, the football icon is seated on a famous Louis Vuitton trunk that is positioned among the airplanes on the tarmac, all set to embark on exotic journeys with his Horizon luggage.
Rimowa Essential Collection
To celebrate Spring’s arrival, Rimowa has expanded its Essential collection with two new seasonal shades: Petal and Cedar. These two colours showcase the captivating beauty of contrast originating in parallel worlds and the pursuit for harmony and balance in this seemingly uncertain world.
The subtle blush of pastel pink mirrors the radiant splendour of cherry blossoms, signalling the arrival of spring, while the refined brown tone of Cedar symbolises strength. When combined, these contrasting hues encapsulate the fleeting yet harmonious beauty of cherry blossom trees. Rounding up the new collection, several of Rimowa’s key pieces and accessories are also spotted in Petal such as the Personal Polycarbonate Cross-body Bag, Never Still Flap Backpack Small, Never Still Vertical Tote, Packing Cubes and iPhone 14 and 14 Pro cases.
Tumi | McLaren 60th Anniversary Collection
As part of Tumi’s Spring 2023 collection, the latest campaign features Tumi crew member and McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris. The collection offers a variety of limited-edition styles in McLaren’s signature papaya colourway, including the Torque Sling, Velocity Backpack, and Aero International Expandable 4-Wheeled Carry-On. Made to meet the needs of pioneers, travellers, and adventurers on the go, the 60th Anniversary collection offers a wider range of carrying options with the addition of packing cases and portfolios.
New Balance | Samsonite Collection
When two highly innovative brands come together, expectations are high on what this partnership will entail. For the collaboration between Samsonite and New Balance, a collection comprising of crossbody bag, shoebox crossbody bag and hard-side luggage products are available for purchase in Singapore. Celebrating individual expression and versatility, the new launch “seeks to foster the love of exploration with a stylish, versatile collection that meets the lifestyle needs of every type of explorer – fuelling their drive to pursue their dreams fearlessly” as shared by the brand and this essence is encapsulated under the campaign’s theme of “Live Undefined”.
Embodying both aesthetics and functionality, each piece is designed with a semi-transparent hard shell that is juxtaposed with coloured reversible pouches. While the smaller offerings are made for everyday travel, special mention goes to the Rolling Tote and Spinner 61. The former is an 18-inch hard-side luggage with a large expandable pouch, while the Spinner 61 is a 22-inch hard-side luggage that comes with a large expandable pouch and two additional medium-sized pouches. Both are great travel companion for quick getaways.
