Venetian designer Francesco Pavia has reinvented the suitcase (or trolley) as a pre-damaged looking piece of luggage. Purposely dinged and dented Crash Baggage are hardshell cases on wheels in beautiful matte and shiny colors. Already featured in the hippest design mags, shops and shows in Europe and Asia, Crash Baggage is well-designed, durable and made from 100% sustainable plastic.
It was in Florence, back in January of 2013, that the brand first introduced the “handle without care” philosophy to the public. The first Crash Baggage official event took place in June during the 84th edition of Pitti Uomo in Florence, in collaboration with the concept store “Societe Anonime”.
“Each piece comes pre-damaged like it’s already been tossed around a few times by airport personal. Not only does it eliminate the fear of seeing your precious new bag come out all battered, but it sure makes it easier to spot. BEFORE YOU SAY IT’S SO STUPID, CHECK TO SEE IF YOU ARE WEARING JEANS WITH PRE-MADE HOLES IN THEM.” – Crash Baggage
