Samsonite Black Label has collaborated with Viktor & Rolf to produce a range of luggage and accessories following their well-established link with Alexander McQueen.
The collection is inspired by the golden age of travel, yet with a Viktor & Rolf twist, making them look like toys with colourful aeroplane prints, large bows and oversized hardware.
“To emphasise the fun of the collection, we developed a white custom-built 1960’s airport, complete with aircraft, ground vehicles and crew.”

You know you’re in one of the top suites on a ship when it comes with a personal butler. Or, at least, that was the old rule. Now some of the world’s ritziest lines are promising butlers to all.
Luxury line Silversea Cruises Wednesday announced plans to roll out personal butler service for passengers in every cabin on every ship – something Azamara Cruises has touted since it launched two years ago.
According to Christian Sauleau, Silversea’s executive vice president, each butler assisted by a suite attendant is empowered to troubleshoot problems and provide special service touches.

A planned luxury train to Tibet has been postponed for the second time in a year, the operator said Monday, adding the global slowdown – not simmering tension in the Himalayan region – was to blame.
Tangula Luxury Trains, which was expected to launch high-class tours from Beijing to Lhasa in April this year, said it would delay the start of package holidays on the world’s highest railway until spring 2010.
“The rescheduling of our official launch was a very recent decision and was taken by our management in light of the current global economic climate,” a Beijing-based spokeswoman told AFP.
