Heys America Luggage has become a global leader in luggage design with their innovative and original collections. They have created two Limited Edition luggage series, Britto and Fernando Volken Togni. Each collection combines a unique pop art design with the high standard features of all Heys America cases. These designs and patterns transform your luggage into a work of art.
The Heys America Fernando Volken Togni (FVT) Collection is unlike any other. It features three groups; FVT Cities, FVT World, and FVT USA. Togni is a Brazilian-born illustrator currently living in London. His art style is bold and unique. He uses vivid colors and sharp shapes to create a design of organized chaos. Each collection offers a three piece luggage set, such as the Heys America FVT USA 3 Piece Set, that includes 21”, 26”, and 30” uprights. All uprights are also available as single items to better suit your needs or allow you to mix and match. The Cities Collection highlights New York in the Heys America FVT Cities 30” Spinner.
The Britto by Heys America Collection, while also featuring a pop art style, is vastly different from FVT. It is designed by Romero Britto, a Brazilian-born Florida resident with a neo-pop style. Neo-pop combines pop art with graffiti. With this style, he created lively, fresh and happy designs shown on this Britto by Heys A New Day 26” Expandable Spinner. The bright colors stand out on the hardside cases. Like the FVT, this collection includes luggage sets and individual spinner suitcases, along with beauty cases and smaller travel duffels, totes and business pieces.
All Heys America collections are held to a high standard. Each suitcase, made from polycarbonate composite material, is both lightweight and durable, even the Britto by Heys Butterfly Love 30” Expandable Spinner. The impact-resistant and scratch-resistant printed exterior is protected by a layer of clear coat that provides a beautiful, glossy finish. Designed for easy maneuverability, each suitcase has four spinner wheels for an ultra-smooth and effortless 360 degree rolling. All pieces, including the Heys America FVT Cities 21” Spinner, feature a fully lined interior with built-in divider and mesh pocket. Heys included a built-in TSA lock for your safety and a zippered expansion system to provide you with 20% more packing capacity.
Pop art originated in the mid-1950s in Britain and late 1950s in America. The term was invented in 1955 by Lawrence Alloway, a British curator. Characterized by pop culture and consumerism, the concept of pop art refers to the attitude and not the art itself. It often uses images currently used in advertising, such as logos or product labels, comic books, and news. The style is bold, vibrant, and simple, and often features bright colors.

You’re waiting at the airport on your way home from a tropical getaway with your family. It’s a Sunday morning in the middle of winter and you just threw on a heavy winter coat – Can you feel that chill in the air?? Brr! As you walk towards the baggage claim to pick up your trusted soft-sided luggage set, you see a pile of clothes thrown on the carousel and think to yourself “Man, I feel so bad for that person.” Upon closer inspection you realize those are YOUR belongings on display for everyone to see. You quickly throw the broken suitcase on a luggage cart, gather everything you can in one swift motion, pile your clothes into the open suitcase and run like crazy to the car waiting for you.
At home a few days later you start searching the internet for new luggage and realize just how many options there are compared to a few years ago. Do you need hard-side or soft-side luggage, 2-wheels or 4-wheels, plain colors or fun prints? The choices are overwhelming! Taking a step back, you realize you just want luggage that will fit all of your belongings and that will last.
While browsing the internet, you come across Hardside Luggage on www.IrvsLuggage.com and decide to check it out further. The first page shows some brands you know (Samsonite and Heys) and some brands you aren’t too familiar with (Titan and International Traveller); and you’re intrigued. You see that most hardside luggage pieces have a stiff molded construction – typically made out of polycarbonate, aluminum or ABS plastic – giving the luggage flexibility and strength, not to mention increased protection against airline damage (and we all know the havoc the airlines can wreak on a perfectly good suitcase!) They also come in several sizes for every need: business cases, carry-ons and checked uprights up to 33” in height.
That may sound pretty good, but you’re still not convinced. You start reading customer reviews of different hardside luggage brands. Customers speak of how their hardside luggage carry ons and luggage sets last longer and are damaged less often than any softsided piece they carried before. Consumers also love that their luggage expands, no differently than a softsided piece.
While these are great attributes, the design features are the best selling points. A TSA lock comes attached to most luggage pieces and the protection that is offered by the reinforced materials used (no squishing important documents or electronics) makes a huge difference when traveling.
In contrast, some consumers dislike the fact that hardsided pieces cannot be squished into small spaces. And even if you are extremely careful, the unexpected dent and scratch do happen. What some consumers are not always ready for is that hardside luggage is more expensive than softside luggage – and it may come as a shock at first! But even after debating the good and bad of hardside luggage, the pros far outweigh the cons.
The next time you’re in need of new luggage, why not check out some of the great hardside luggage brands we have at Irv’s Luggage. We’re sure you’ll find just what you need!
