Samsonite is launching its first major new range of luggage for almost ten years. Design, as before, is by FM Design. The range, branded Epsilon, features three pieces – two suitcases and a beauty case. The hard-sided cases are made of polypropylene with a soft handle made of DuPont polymer Hytrel. Epsilon features the widest wheel base on the market. Its four wheels can be used in two or four-wheel drive, with two handles, one for each mode of pulling. There is a three-point locking system. Samsonite UK sales director Colin Beattie says: `Epsilon represents a triumph for British design.’ Epsilon is designed for the European market, but, as with the previous Oyster range, may prove attractive to the huge US market.
