“Last year’s ‘Take On the World’ concept captured the fun, young and international spirit of American Tourister, and we’re happy to bring it back this year with a fresh and exciting new story,” said Kelvyna Lam, business director, Samsonite and American Tourister, Asia Pacific.

The campaign marks the celebration of the brand’s 80th anniversary. It was founded in Rhode Island in the US in 1933.
