Samsonite celebrates the energy of Keith Haring

Samsonite has embraced the iconic designs of world-renowned artist Keith Haring, to create a fun and colourful collection of travel accessories.

A pioneer of urban street art in the early 1980s, Haring’s work is instantly recognisable by its bold lines and lively, colourful figures. A world traveller himself, Haring created over fifty public murals in locations as diverse as Tokyo, New York, Sydney, Barcelona and San Francisco, many of which still exist. His studio work continues to be collected and exhibited by museums around the world. Samsonite created the collection to pay homage to Haring in recognition of their shared innovative design values. The collection is comprised of travel essentials, emblazoned with the designs for which Haring is known the world over. 

Travel essentials

Available in Keith Haring’s signature graffiti print, the distinctively patterned set of Bag Tags will make your bags stand out. This durable strap loops quickly around your bag handle and has a transparent window with protective flap for privacy of your contact details. The US Air Travel Triple Combination Lock offers you peace of mind with its strong zinc material, and is Transport Security Administration (TSA) approved. Complete your travel look with the graffiti print Luggage Strap which is both great looking and functional. The colourful strap will ensure your bag stays securely tightened and will be easily recognisable amongst other luggage. For those who like to travel in comfort and style, this printed Travel Rest Pillow is a must-have. Make your journeys more enjoyable with this colourful number that is filled with ultra-fine polystyrene beads that adapt to your posture and help prevent stiffness.

Foldaway bags

Stylish and practical, the foldaway bags feature Haring’s signature pattern on a blue background for a modern look. They fold into a small pouch and are extremely lightweight and durable.

The Foldaway Tote is perfect for packing into larger luggage, for day trips or just a trip to the shops. The Foldaway Backpack style is designed for long term use while remaining lightweight and compact. With padded shoulder straps the bag is comfortable and great for both short and long trips. In the same style, the larger Foldaway Duffle bag is ideal for longer trips and can easily be stored at home. With one main zipped compartment and four external pockets along with shoulder strap and carry handles, the bag is very practical and looks great when you’re travelling.
