TUMI, the leading international travel and lifestyle brand unveils its new collection designed and developed in partnership with luxury supercar maker and Formula 1 team McLaren.
Since announcing in 2019 that the two companies would work together, TUMI’s Creative Director Victor Sanz and Rob Melville, McLaren’s supercar Design Director, have created a premium capsule collection of elegant business, travel, and everyday essentials. Each piece is designed to uncomplicate while elevating performance in all aspects of life on the move.
The capsule collection is comprised of nine pieces. Each encompasses elements of McLaren’s sleek, bold supercars and race cars and are highlighted with McLaren’s signature Papaya colorway and feature CCX6® carbon fiber accents. The carry-on is crafted in a hybrid of materials, including Tegris®, an extremely hard-wearing thermoplastic composite found in race cars. A molded fabric front panel contrasts the hard shell with a supercar-influenced design echoed throughout the collaboration. The Velocity Backpack was created to keep wearers connected all day long thanks to the inclusion of a USB port and padded laptop compartment. TUMI’s hallmark “Add-a-Bag” sleeve makes it a fitting companion to the collection’s carry-on.
The two brands share the common vision of continually pursuing higher excellence levels, which is reflected in the considered details and choice of materials in the McLaren-inspired TUMI range.
The collection is currently available via TUMI.com, TUMI’s global retail stores, and select McLaren retailers globally.
