Samsonite has signed a licensing deal with Zee Co. Apparel for an outerwear collection that will launch in fall 2013. Zee is best known for its Hawke & Co. outerwear collection and also produces private-label merchandise and uniforms.

The line, which will start with men’s and eventually expand into women’s wear, will offer technical features such as moisture-wicking, antiwrinkle properties and tear-resistant fabrics, as well as a variety of pockets and other details designed to hold smartphones and tablets. Several of the pieces are packable and designed to be stored in the company’s luggage collection.
