Taking to Instagram this week, A-COLD-WALL* designer Samuel Ross posted a set of “concept based luxury leather luggage.”
Citing Italian architects Adolfo Natalini and Cristiano Toraldo di Francia as inspiration, the designer said the post would be the “last preview before runway,” presumably referring to London Fashion Week Men’s Autumn/Winter 2019 this weekend.
In the photo we can see a large rectangular duffle bag, a suitcase, two medium sized bags, and a uniquely-shaped smaller, fifth bag. The two medium bags, one with a flap closure and one with a zip, feature in close-up photos in the Instagram post.
The items are white leather with a black debossed grid design and ACW branding. They also feature what appear to be ink splatters, though whether this is a permanent feature or simply for the photograph/runway show remains to be seen. Stay tuned for more details.
