TUMI has launched a new travel and luggage collection that was designed and developed in collaboration with McLaren, the British supercar manufacturer, and Formula 1 Team.
TUMI and McLaren agreed to work together in 2019. Since then, TUMI’s Creative Director Victor Sanz and McLaren’s Supercar Design Director have created a nine-piece capsule collection “designed to uncomplicate, while elevating all aspects of life on the move.”
TUMI’S “FAST TRAVEL” RANGE
Every item in the collection has elements from McLaren’s supercars and racecars. They are also highlighted with McLaren’s Papaya colourway and feature CCX6® carbon fibre accents.
The hybrid materials used to craft the former include Tegris®, a durable thermoplastic composite found in racecars. Inside, the compression strap is inspired by six-point racing harnesses, which are not only used in racing, but also in cars such as the McLaren Senna GTR.
The TUMI Aero International Expandable can be complemented with the Trace Expandable Organizer ($590), Teron Travel Kit ($490) and Orbit Small Packing Cube ($230). These pieces help the traveller keep his or her belongings protected and organised.
Meanwhile, the Velocity Backpack ($1650) caters to road warriors with its padded laptop compartment and USB port. TUMI’s “Add-a-Bag” sleeve, which lets users slide the bag into their wheeled luggage handle, makes it easier to carry.
Victor Sanz said: “For me, this is the ultimate collaboration as TUMI and McLaren have an innate synergy.
“We’re two like-minded brands who share the same values – unparalleled quality, technical innovation and design excellence. The value of this partnership, however, extends beyond the product.”
“With a keen focus on lifestyle, we design for the betterment of the customer experience.”
“With McLaren’s advanced technology and our top-of-the-line materials, our gear can tackle the most arduous excursions and still effortlessly translate into daily life.”
