Still desperately thinking about what last-minute Christmas gift to buy for a family member or special friend? If you really want to impress them, and make their next trip even more memorable, Carpisa have just released a travel luggage collection developed in collaboration with Pininfarina.
Created as a celebration of Italian innovation and excellence, the Carpisa collection is described as a tribute to two of the distinctive traits which, over the years, have contributed to defining Pininfarina’s identity: innovation in mobility associated with Italian design.
According to the Italian design house, the combination tradition and innovation showcases “a partnership that aims at collecting and uniting the expertise of the two brands so as to offer a versatile and durable product with a contemporary and exclusive design curated down to the tiniest detail. A product with a high technical content that combines the exclusivity that has always characterised Pininfarina products with the simplicity of those branded Go Carpisa.”
Designed for both men and women, the capsule includes a line of trolleys available in three sizes, two backpacks, a work bag and a shoulder bag.
The trolleys, which come in both black and grey, are made of ultra-resistant “Carpisa Gotech”, a material consisting of a combination of mainly recycled materials (70 per cent) with an internal lining made of 100 per cent R-PET. They are equipped with a telescopic system, as well as dual wheels comprising specific materials that make them ultra-silent “to guarantee durability and maximum versatility for all kinds of uses”.
Lightweight, handy, compact and ergonomic, and suitable for all seasons, the bags and backpacks are also available in black and grey and are made of high-quality recycled polyester.
“Carpisa and Pininfarina have a lot in common,” said Carpisa CEO Gianluigi Cimmino, “so a collaboration to combine the distinctive traits of the two brands occurred naturally: they are both Italian brands known all over the world with a high level of technical innovation and easily recognisable character and design. We are certain that the products that have been developed and made by our creative teams will be appreciated by our clients, who are always looking for innovative, practical and designer products at an accessible price. After all, Italian excellence is a brand recognised all over the world.”
Added Silvio Pietro Angori, Pininfarina CEO and general manager, “Our mission is to move dreams and the collaboration with Carpisa enabled us to create a collection thought up for the everyday needs of those who travel for work or leisure. We have made our multi-disciplinary skills available – from product to experience design – which, combined with Carpisa’s technical innovations, has given birth to a collection with a strong distinctive character. We are proud to have signed the collection with our brand, a synonym of timeless Italian style, making it even more precious.”
