The travel-inspired bag specialist has introduced its impressive new Classic Remix Collection into the travel retail market this October.
The first glimpse of the collection was at the TFWA Singapore event earlier this year. CabinZero founder and CEO Neil Varden confirms the collection will be available in airport ground stores very shortly.
This limited edition Classic Remix Collection has been made in collaboration with the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A). The London-sited world-leading museum of art, design and performance sited. The collection combines innovative all-weather, durable bags with beautifully designed, unique patterns. The range of six backpacks and hip bags features a variety of convenient sizes: 28 litre, 36 litre and 44 litre in Classic; 2 litre Classic Hip; and the 11 litre and 30 litre in ADV Dry.
The collection is inspired by prints drawn from the V&A archives, including Azar, which is a travel retail exclusive. Features of individual bags in CabinZero’s Collection vary depending on their size, with highlights including:
- All-weather protection
- Hide-away straps
- Trolley slip
- Thicker padding on the back and straps
- Sternum straps
- Bottle/umbrella pockets
- Laptop compartments
CabinZero founder and CEO Neil Varden said: “The new collection has added some beautiful archival prints to our collection. Spotlighting the Azar, which is a striking travel retail exclusive. Also, “We have been encouraged recently by new airline listings for our products and myself.”
The two new Cabin Zero airline listings are with Tiger Air and Philippines Airlines for the Cabin Zero ADV DRY 30 litre waterproof backpack. The product has greatly appealed to airline retailers with its multi-functional features, attractive RRP and a reassuring 10- year warranty.
The V&A Classic Remix Collection designs in detail:
This beautiful paisley design draws its inspiration from the work of textile designer George Haité (1825-71). Originally a Victorian shawl design, the pattern is a reimagination – with linen white, rich red, deep blue and jade green on a burgundy background.
A white trailing bloom print combining a soft black background with tones of olive, khaki green and highlights of chartreuse and soft pink. This stylish design takes its inspiration from an album of textiles by William Kilburn (1745-1818) in the V&A collection.
Azar **TR exclusive**
Orange flaming lotus flowers weaved with deep indigo stems and leaves, on a vintage sand background. This stylish design is inspired by an extraordinary Iranian textile, originally woven in Iran in the mid-19th century.
This floral watercolour print, in soft burgundy tones on an antique cream background, draws its inspiration from the designs of Huguenot silk weaver, James Leman (1688- 1745), in the V&A collection.
