We've sold out the C-Lite x Basquiat suitcase collection. We would like to thank you for the enthusiasm shown towards this unique collaboration and look forward to keep surprising you in the future with more Samsonite limited editions.
Jean-Michel Basquiat is one of the best known artists of his generation and is widely considered one of the most important of the 20th century. His trendsetting works combine archetypal symbols and writing with invented iconography in compositions that are edgy and raw with a strong sense of colour and balance. Internationally popular and shown in museums worldwide, his work appeals to both a sophisticated art scene crowd as well as a younger pop culture driven audience.
Features a dinosaur in a crown motif – a reference to the US candy known as “Pez” which is a symbol of popular culture. The figure is emblazoned on a minimal, crisp white background to allow the focal art to take centre stage.
Features a rich and textured artwork that champions an X-ray-like vision of a head’s exposed upper and lower jaw. This iconic drawing clashes against multiple colours and graffiti details to create a powerful, eye-catching impact on any baggage carousel.

The C-Lite and art
Since 2008, the year when our Cosmolite collection was first launched, its impact has remained as powerful and iconic as ever. We have repeatedly devoted our innovative printing techniques to pay homage to artists through various collaborations.
Now, after evolving the series through our C-Lite collection, we are extremely proud to unveil the C-Lite x Jean-Michel Basquiat special collection, featuring several of his most renowned works of art on our C-Lite canvas.
This collaborative collection is available in limited pieces.
