Samsonite’s vintage Fashionaire luggage collection returns

Samsonite_luggage

Samsonite has recently reissued its Fashionaire luggage collection, first seen in the airport lounges back in 1968.

The designs in the 2007 version differ from the originals and include extra pieces, but are in keeping with the look and feel. The full collection packs in a suitcase, wheeled upright case, duffle bag, shoulder pouch, beauty case, shopping bag, umbrella, scarf, wallet and keyhanger. There’s also two colour schemes to choose from – white or black background.

Above are the suitcase and beauty case. The suitcase is a throwback to a time before luggage had wheels and is extremely limited – just 600 made for the re-launch. It sells for $565 (around £285). The beauty case is limited to 2500 worldwide and houses an "organised" interior, with two removable pouches and elastic loops for organising bottles. That retails for $315 (around £160).

    the ones on the picture that Amanda had shown on her 12/27/2008 post. How much do you think would
