We’re keeping it simple but not plain with 5 ways to play up your plaid game.

We’re taking labels off the good old classic plaid. All grunge went out the window the moment Gucci launched a plaid number with floral embroidery detailing, from the Gucci Garden collection, which inspired us to reiterate the comfy top with 5 cool themes.

Early Bird

An early headstart is made sweeter with this look, featuring the quirky marshmallow-inspired timepiece by Richard Mille from their sugary Bonbon collection. Offer a nod to the cool combo of father-daughter duo, Lenny and Zoe Kravitz, who starred in Tumi's spring 2019 collection, with your very own compact Tumi backpack.
