Beautiful Retro Vintage Samsonite Luggage Fashionaire Black and White Flower Power Pattern Hanging Garment Bag. This pattern is from the 1960's, the original name of the pattern is Wild Gardenia and it is black and white flowers with Veuve Clicquot orange interior fabric. This line was reproduced in 2007 with a limited edition of 600 suitcases, retail price of $580. This garment bag is the original 1960's bag and not one of the reproduction pieces.
The black and white flower pattern on the outside of the bag is a heavy vinyl fabric, the orange lining of the bag is Veuve Clicquot and is made of fabric. This garment bag is a really hard to find piece in this line. It has a suitcase style handle on the top to carry it, each side of the bag has a large belt buckle style closure, there is a zippered pocket on the front of the bag that has a lock and two keys. The bottom has four plastic feet and a metal hanger that folds down so the bag can be hung when not traveling.
The inside of the bag when unzipped, rolls up on its own, and roll to the top of the bag where the hangers are, a really neat feature that Samsonite designed into this bag. It has the original fabric covered hangers included, these hangers can removed and used when you get to your destination. There is a shoe bag compartment at the bottom of the bag, has four slot for shoes, top flap comes over this area that your clothing is not exposed to your shoes.
The folded size of this bag is 22" tall and 11" wide and 23 1/2" across, the open size of this bag is about 50" long and it is 23 1/2" across. The top has the Samsonite logo on the handle along with S and C on either side, assume the S C looks stands for Samsonite Case or something along that line because it does not appear to be someone's initials but rather a factory applied part.
This garment bag is in mint condition, it appears to have not been used, no soiled spots and no signs of wear.
