Press release
Published October 1st, 2014 - 05:25 GMT

Samsonite continues its journey into the prestige luggage market with the release of its Python Collection – a combination of the finest craftsmanship, innovation and textural sensuality usually only associated with the flamboyance of haute couture. Drawing inspiration from the textures and subtle forms of one of nature’s most magnificent and beautiful reptiles, Python, the collection reinforces Samsonite’s position as the creators of the finest luxury travel goods for travellers who demand the best.

Whether you travel for business or pleasure, Python not only ensures that you travel in style but also guarantees the highest levels of safety and security for your personal items. Robust yet stylish external shells and seductive scarlet linings combine to produce lightweight, easily manoeuvrable luggage which make packing and travelling a pleasure in itself.

The new Samsonite Black Label Python models include the Spinner 55, the Spinner 66 and the Spinner 76. These models are available in vibrant shades of shimmering red, glistening black or gleaming grey-white. The external shells exemplify Samsonite’s attention to detail. Their tactile snakeskin effect underlines the promise of the strength hidden beneath the product.

Commenting on the announcement, Jai Krishnan, Vice President Middle East, East Africa & SAARC at Samsonite, “We’re delighted to launch our new range and extremely excited by the design of Python, which marks a new direction in the art of luggage design. Samsonite has long been recognised as the leader in providing luggage solutions for discerning travellers and, with Python, we have again achieved a breakthrough in both form and functionality.”

Jai Krishnan added, “The unique qualities of Python are a combination of innovative and ergonomic product design, and an appreciation of what our customers have become accustomed to – the finest materials, the highest levels of attention to detail and an intangible aura which goes beyond everyday requirements, taking luggage offerings to the next level.”

Python is manufactured from 100% polycarbonate which is proven to be durable and resistant to bumps, bangs and accidental spillages, while being extremely lightweight. The secret of the shell is that it is layered with a special wax coating which will wear gently, with time, to result in a unique and individual patina. Each piece is embedded with a certified TSA combination lock, for added security, and comes with a leather ID tag, leather handle grip and pull handle grip for extra comfort and convenience. Silent and multi-directional wheels ensure effortless handling. 

The interior of the Python range continues Samsonite’s obsession with and passion for the detail of refinement. Each piece is lined with durable but lightweight herringbone jacquard and features a Y-compartment strap and luggage cover. Complimentary accessories include a shoe pouch, cosmetic bag and ID tag. With the Spinner 66 and 76, an additional garment suit hanger is included.
