Introducing The Tumi X McLaren Carbon Collection
In the same way McLaren’s racers depend on their cars to get them across the finish line, the everyday man also depends on his travel luggage to reach his intended destination. Indeed, when the functionality and durability of Tumi luggage are combined with McLaren’s constant chase for adrenaline, the result is a collection that emphasises on performance luxury.
Initially announced in 2019, this collaboration was spearheaded by Tumi’s creative director Victor Sanz and McLaren's Rob Melville. With a mutual mission for travel and luxury lifestyle, these two brands strived to infuse cutting-edge elements of technology and sport into everyday essentials. The nine pieces of this collection, which will be available from April 15, feature McLaren’s signature Papaya colour and CX6® carbon fibre accents.
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.— Victor Sanz, creative director of Tumi
The collection’s central travel pieces are the Aero International Expandable 4 Wheel Carry-On and the Quantum Duffel, with the carry-on uniquely crafted with Tegris, an extremely hard-wearing thermoplastic composite found in race cars that ensures durability.
Another travel essential is the Velocity Backpack, which includes a USB port and Tumi’s hallmark "Add-a-Bag” sleeve, making it compatible with the carry-on.
The collection also features convenient travel organisers, such as The Orbit Small Packing Cube, Trace Expandable Organizer, and split compartment Teron Travel Kit.
