What to buy the holiday travel bug on your list this year? South Beach’s most prolific commercial artist, Romero Britto has a suggestion: Pop Art Luggage!
Fans of Lincoln Road Mall’s most POPular gallery often marvel at Romero Britto’s color block designs on Cooper Minis, Absolut vodka bottles and whimsical sculptures of puppies, teddy bears and tropical fish. South Florida has proven to be a fertile ground for the large scale works of this contemporary Brazilian colorist.
Upscale luggage company Heys USA approached Britto to add his swirling designs to sets of hard-sided luggage that will be really easy to spot on the baggage carousels at airports the world over! The Britto series includes a set of angular graphic color-blocked pieces and a more swirling butterfly printed collection. Each piece features the artist’s signature cartoonish style of primary colors offset by sharp black lines. While air travel can be a struggle with tighter security and often daunting delays, the bold and bouncy looking Britto luggage collection imparts a sense of optimism.
Founded in 1986, Heys USA creates lightweight fashionable travel bags they call “The Art of Modern Luggage.” Working with popular licensed images, their hard-sided cases include bold Disney designs and the iconic patterns that are the trademarks of Britto’s colorful work. The 4 piece Britto collection retails at just over $1000 and features smart wheels and satin nickel finish handles with a three-digit TSA locking device.
Art enthusiasts, travel buffs or folks who only have a dour-looking set of suitcases can trade up to the bold stylings of the Britto Collection just in time for a colorful New Year’s vacation. Britto’s new luggage collection truly is the state of the art!
