Viktor & Rolf Got Baggage

Goodness gracious, great balls of LATENESS. Sorry for the delay...

They've conquered champagne, perfume and H&M. So what's up next for design duo Viktor & Rolf? The pair have signed on to create a luggage collection in 2009 for Samsonite's Black Label, following in Alexander McQueen's footsteps. In tapping the eccentric duo, the luggage company hopes "to be provocative and unexpected to create excitement around the brand," according to Marcello Bottoli, Samsonite's president and CEO.

Unlike McQueen's hard skeletal pieces, this collection, which will include beauty cases, carry-ons and travel totes will be soft pieces.

Look for the line in all Samsonite locations in 2009.
