Tumi presents a cutting-edge collection for Global Citizens.
If you’re planning a trip anytime soon, the best luggage to bring with you, if you ask me, has to be Tumi. A leading international brand, Tumi bags are renowned for being functional premium travel, business and lifestyle accessories. This holiday season, the maison unveils its latest creation, the 19 Degree, a cutting-edge luggage set perfect as long-haul baggage as well as quick-run carry-ons.
Inspired by the tough lines of architecture and the fluid elements of nature, the 19 Degree boasts a strikingly modern silhouette set against meticulously crafted aluminium. Featuring a reinforced framecase design with snap closures and die-cast corner caps for additional protection on the outside, the latest collection continues the brand’s embossed diamond pattern lining on the inside.
Creative Director of Tumi, Victor Sanz, stresses the importance of carrying a bag that is purposefully constructed. “19 Degree truly represents the art of intelligent design; when ‘concepting’ the collection, we approached it with the question ‘How can we make our design less elementary and more elevated than what is already on the market?’ We felt our customer deserved a better design and an overall better product that not only performs, but looks cool while performing.”
19 Degree is available in the full range of carry-on and check-in sizes, with all styles featuring integrated low-profile TSA locks, TUMI Tracer (a bar-coded program by the manufacturer to locate missing bags) and a patented X-Brace 45 telescoping handle system crafted from lightweight-yet sturdy aircraft-grade aluminium, which contributes to the reduced weight of the bags. The four dual-spinning recessed wheels are engineered to offer effortless manoeuvrability and provide greater packing capacity inside.
Taking inspiration from the 19 Degree aluminium, Tumi has also launched a polycarbonate 19 Degree counterpart collection. Equally stylish and lightweight, the polycarbonate assortment is masterfully wrapped in a special film purposefully employed to reflect light when the bag is on the move.
The 19 Degree Aluminium is offered in Silver and Matte Black while the Polycarbonate comes in a striking medley of Silver, Black and Copper. The collections are now available at Tumi retail and specialty stores worldwide, as well as on www.tumi.com.
