marcel wanders: saint jacques for fabbrica pelleterie milano

‘saint-jacques’ by marcel wanders for fabbrica pelleterie milano




dutch designer marcel wanders has developed ‘saint-jacques’, a collection of suitcases for italian luggage and bag company fabbrica pelleterie milano. each of the suitcases comes with a TSA combination lock and handles designed to provide easier means of toting the bags around. the interiors are organized to allow for the optimal placement of one’s belongings, while the exterior of the suitcase is covered in wanders’ signature pattern with zipper pulls that recall the ironic face of the designer.


‘I think the style conscious people will love the colors, the contrasts and the interior in bright colors, while those who are attracted by the multi-sensory will appreciate the three-dimensional embossed surface (…).’ – marcel wanders


the suitcases are available in quick silver, jet black or space blue colors. read about marcel wanders’s thoughts on the design process of ‘saint-jacques’ in this designboom article.

  • Really nice! just not sure about the clown face / his face being on it…

    Sammo says:
  • The logo is just horrible. In my opinion the only nice tthink is the interior of the suitcase. I don’t like the exterior at all!

    Jorge says:
  • looks very cheap and tacky

  • Wheels that are proud reduce cargo space and would be more prone to damage d;-)
