Black and White Manhattan and World Collections Debuting this month
Facebook Contest Launched to Give Away Free Fazzino Luggage Pieces
Weston, FL – Luggage leader, Heys USA, the front-runner in hard side, fashion luggage, recently announced the introduction of two new collections inspired by iconic pop artist Charles Fazzino: Heys Fazzino Black and White Manhattan and World. “We are very excited to add new Fazzino collections to our portfolio of highly acclaimed travel goods,” commented Harry Sheikh, Heys USA president and CEO. “The Heys Fazzino Manhattan and World series bring ‘the art of modern luggage’ to a new level of fashion and travel excitement,” Sheikh added.
“Our customers rely on Heys for the leading edge of fashionable, highly stylized travel goods that also reflect functionality and usability,” commented Sheikh. “Charles Fazzino’s latest collaboration with the Heys USA Group displays our goal to provide our customers with trend-setting alternatives for all their travel needs. This too reflects the company’s overall commitment to deliver fashion-forward products to our customers,” he added.
Best known for his colorful and wonderfully detailed, 3-D pop art, Fazzino uses a unique, hand-assembled layering technique to bring his creations to life. His frenetic energy has made Fazzino an international icon in 3-dimensional art. Heys USA Group product development team has adapted Fazzino’s award-winning art into picture-perfect unique luggage masterpieces.
The new Heys Fazzino collections join the current series: New York Wind Beneath Our Wings, Carnivale Veneziana, London Lights and Paris La Joie De Vie, which debuted to worldwide popularity. The Heys Fazzino Manhattan and World collections both received widespread praise at the recent Travel Goods Show in Las Vegas, NV. The Heys Fazzino World collection evokes a colorful, whimsical view of numerous landmarks, cities and countries around the globe, while the Manhattan series captures the streets, neighborhoods and landmarks of the Big Apple on a monochromatic black and white background.
Each collection is available in a range of sizes that include a 22”, 26”, a 30” upright hard side spinner; along with a matching beauty case; ideal for business and leisure travel. Fazzino’s artwork has been incorporated onto the luggage surfaces using an exclusive manufacturing process. Each piece is lightweight, extremely durable, flexible and absorbs impact. The uprights all feature a patent-pending AirGlide® 4-wheel spinner system that creates a smooth glide during transport across any surface, as well as larger “smart wheels” in the rear for greater control. Additional features include a built-in 3-digit TSA accepted lock, heavy duty zippers and a cushioned handle grip, stylized, fully-lined interiors that are customized to compliment the shell art, as well as a built-in divider and a mesh pocket, so organized packing is a breeze.
