Luxury brand Tumi has launched a new range of travel bags and accessories for the fall and winter season that are inspired by the city of Amsterdam as well as a fresh colour palette that pays homage to the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt.
The new models this fall include the Tegra-Lite Max, Alpha 2, CFX, Sinclair and Journey while the world-renowned artwork of Rembrandt is reflected in the fall colour palette of deep, dark tones such as Olive, Navy, Garnet, Sapphire, Harvest and Fossil.
Amsterdam is a city defined by high contrasts, and the new collection harmonises the tensions of design: engineering versus craftsmanship, utilitarian versus artisanal and basics versus future, says Tumi, adding that the city’s picturesque old-world charm inspired the assortment of travel and lifestyle accessories for the global citizen.
Tegra-Lite Max is described as Tumi’s toughest, strongest hardside travel collection. A fully functional and inwardly flexing front U-zip pocket, expansion, new double 360-degree turning wheels, Tumi’s patented Durafold construction and telescoping X-Brace handle system are key benefits found within the new collection. Combining the highest levels of durability and impact resistance, Tegra-Lite Max is said to offer global travellers everything they could possibly want in a bag without sacrificing style. The collection launches in colours of T-Graphite, Black Cherry, Baltic, Sunrise, and an intricately woven Herringbrown pattern.
Debuting for fall 2014, CFX is Tumi’s newest premium collection of travel, day bag and small accessories is made from soft carbon fibre and is said to set a new standard for first-class travel. CFX will be available in Carbon with a lustrous dark grey sheen and in a range of styles, including the Silverstone International Carry-On, Adelaide Soft Duffel, Sebring Tablet Cover and Double Billfold Wallet.
An upgrade to Tumi’s iconic ballistic nylon collection, Alpha 2 business cases represent an evolution of the traditional briefcase. With a modern, updated design, Alpha 2 briefs illustrates a slimmer structure which overall makes the cases lighter in weight. Timeless design and a streamlined aesthetic include upgraded hardware and an interior lining featuring Tumi’s protective ID Lock, which shields against the virtual theft of personal information from credit cards and passports. Styles including the new Framed Soft Duffel, Tumi T-Pass Expandable Laptop Brief and Slim Deluxe. Available in ballistic nylon or nappa leather, Alpha 2 will launch in the new Olive hue in both soft and select travel styles, alongside core Black and Espresso colour ways.
Appealing to the professional businesswoman, the Sinclair collection will debut with a fresh assortment of sophisticated totes and briefcases. Refined and tailored in look, box grain coated canvas brings a modern sensibility to the classic silhouettes. The Patricia Tote and Lynn Large Tote each transition from a stylish zippered carry-all to an, expandable trapeze-shaped tote providing additional space. Each style features a charm accent, adding a feminine and personal touch for monogramming initials. Whereas simplistic elegance defines the exterior, functionality takes the spotlight on the interior, with dedicated laptop and tech accessories pockets. Seasonal colours include Garnet, Harvest, Fossil, Navy Multi, Black and Earl Grey.
Functional and fun, Journey is said to be perfect for packing in last-minute essentials. The assortment includes a variety of cosmetic cases and multipurpose pouches in six new vibrant colours: Atlantic, Fuchsia, Plum, Leaf, Garnet, Sunrise, and Autumn Eclipse. Styles include the new Nimes Small Travel Case, Lyon Large Travel Case and classic Medium and Large Packing Cubes, Just-in-Case Travel Duffel, and three-piece Flat Pouch Set made from lightweight nylon.
