“Take on the World”


JWT’s campaign gives American Tourister fresh appeal on 80th anniversary

“Take on the World”



Samsonite Asia Limited have launched a new campaign for American Tourister, created by JWT Hong Kong, that highlights the brand’s fresh, energetic youthful appeal, and showcases the technology behind its new Vivolite range, as the brand celebrates its 80th anniversary.


JWT Hong Kong’s “Take on the World” campaign, which features American Tourister’s new ultra light and durable Vivolite suitcase, shows young travelers navigating the streets of Paris with their Vivolite luggage with ease, pulling the luggage over cobble stones, riding it down steep streets, and banging it down cement steps.  


The high-paced TV commercial brings to life the brand’s fun, lighted-hearted and colourful attitude, while highlighting the durability of the stylish, lightweight Vivolite. The campaign, which was launched in Korea in July and will roll out across Asia Pacific through the rest of the year, will also feature series of print ads that show a mix of global landmarks and young travellers from different parts of the world.   


The 2013 “Take on the World” campaign is a sequel to the 2012 campaign, which also showed trendy, active young travellers from all over the world excitedly running from one city to another, passing their colourful American Tourister luggage to each other, as if they were passing on a fun adventure.   Sales for the brand, especially the Prismo range featured in the campaign, soared through 2012, and remains one of their best selling product ranges this year.

Vivolite is made with American Tourister’s new patented PressPro™ technology, which allowed American Tourister to create the lightest hardcase luggage they’ve ever produced, starting at just 2.5 kg for the 55 cm cabin-sized model.


The 2013 campaign marks a landmark for American Tourister, which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year. American Tourister was founded in 1933 in Rhode Island, and made the world’s first molded luggage in 1955, which quickly became known for its remarkable toughness. The brand is still trusted for its products’ durability to this day.  

“‘Take On the World’ is meant to evoke that rush of excitement we feel when we’re about to go on a great trip, especially from the perspective of today’s young and optimistic travelers who are eager to see the world,” says Lo Sheung Yan, Chairman, Asia Pacific Creative Council, JWT.

“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,” says Kelvyna Lam, Business Director, Samsonite and American Tourister, Asia Pacific.
