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.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
