Events | Lookbook | News | Style | 3 March 2017

Whether a brief, a tote, or a backpack, a bag should never be thought of as merely a functional carryall for holding the everyday necessities—a bag has the powerful ability to elevate and transform one’s look. As daily travel has evolved from simply commuting to and from work—with stops at the gym, lunch meetings and various work events in between—a carryall that can meet the aesthetic needs of the workplace and the functional needs for all the essentials is becoming a mandatory accessory. TUMI continues to celebrate its heritage of design excellence with the Spring 2017 men’s collection. Refined in design and timeless in color, the men’s collection is updated in fresh neutrals and subdued prints.

The Ashton collection takes on a sophisticated attitude that embodies relaxed luxury with a modern twist. Crafted from supple Black leather, vibrant Green leather or Grey coated canvas with metal alloy speed clips, Ashton pairs contemporary elements with classic details in a sophisticated execution for today’s traveler. All styles feature a unique interior pocket that is both protectively lined with microfiber and boasts ID Lock™ to help safeguard delicate and personal essentials. The dual-partitioned Collins Slim Brief, offered in Grey coated canvas and Black leather, features a spacious main compartment with padded pockets dedicated to holding a laptop and tablet, along with smaller pockets for accessories. Additionally, there is an exterior zip pocket for fast-access items and a back pocket that also functions as an Add-a-Bag sleeve. The Dresden Flap Backpack features a utilitarian design and is available in Grey, Black or Green. A speed clip closure opens into a spacious main compartment with several pockets, including padded compartments for a laptop and tablet. The Lenox Duffel brings refined sophistication to travel accessories. This elegant weekender has a framed opening that allows for full and easy access into the roomy main interior, which contains zip and open pockets for smaller items. There is a front exterior zip pocket and an Add-a-Bag strap on the back.

The CFX collection continues to showcase TUMI’s design-driven leadership and steadfast commitment to constant innovation with the introduction of the world’s first colored soft carbon fiber bags. Reminiscent of premium performance cars, this luxurious assortment strikes an ideal balance between performance, structure, strength and aerodynamics. All bag styles feature a protective microfiber-lined pocket with ID Lock™ and an Add-A-Bag strap that allows for seamless travel. The Shawnee Brief, offered in the Carbon color way, opens to a generous compartment with two sections for personal items. Additional details include padded laptop and tablet pockets and an exterior zip pocket to quickly access everyday staples. The Southington Backpack, available in Carbon or Navy, showcases a voluminous interior with tech-savvy pockets and superior organizational compartments for accessories.

Meticulously appointed with timeless design and modern sensibilities, the Landon collection reflects the brand’s pinnacle premium offering. Crafted from light matte pebbled leather, this assortment is characterized by sophisticated and streamlined designs and clean, contemporary details enriched with advanced functionality. For Spring 2017, the Alcott Backpack, Whitman Tote and Bradmoor Slim Brief are re-energized with a lively print. These strong statement pieces will be offered in a bold Fern print. The Harrison collection, relaunching this season, is a contemporary and elevated leather array illustrative of functionality following design. Timelessly modern, the assortment spotlights a clean, streamlined aesthetic with smooth and supple leather in classic neutrals Black, Brown and Grey. Handsomely constructed for effortless daily commutes between work and home, the Webster Backpack reveals a sophisticated interior with padded laptop and tablet pockets for the digital-age traveler. The elegant Rockwell Day Duffel meets the needs of the active, on-the-go lifestyle while maintaining a cool and casual downtown vibe. This relaxed weekender offers a wide zip entry to the main compartment, allowing easy access to the spacious interior. An exterior quick-access pocket and Add-A-Bag strap on the back make traipsing through the airport a breeze.

Minimalism meets athleisure in the updated Tahoe collection, capturing the freedom of movement between work and travel. The next incarnation of the collection fosters an active attitude and casual aesthetic that focuses close attention on functionality and design-driven details. Each collection piece is constructed from highly-durable fabric with refined leather trim and hidden zipper seams. The subtle geo-embossed print on the fabric and triangular reinforcements, along with seasonal colors Orange and Leaf Camo, recall mountainous shapes and colors discovered across natural landscapes. The compact yet versatile Elwood Backpack is expertly designed with a plenitude of pockets, including dedicated compartments for a laptop and tablet. The newly crafted Cove Backpack is unique in design and a true representation of the TUMI difference. This impressive carryall features an exterior rain flap that protects the contents of the bag, side zip entry into the spacious main compartment for quick access, and a wealth of interior organizational pockets. Additionally, the bottom section unzips to reveal a compartment with a water-resistant pocket for separate storage, while the sternum strap offers increased stability while out and about.

Haydon, the lightweight assembly of soft and relaxed silhouettes, expands its offering with new profiles and revitalizes existing styles in lively seasonal Green trimmed with vachetta leather. The Wilson Flap Backpack is generously sized and uniquely shaped, allowing for the bag to be stuffed to capacity without compromising your belongings, while the speed clip closure allows you to manipulate the shape of the bag for added versatility. For the digital traveler, the Wilson includes dual compartments with separate padded pockets to hold both a laptop and a tablet. Constructed with plenty of storage for all of the essentials, the newly added Powell Tote goes the extra mile. The back section includes a zippered pass-through that allows access to the spacious main compartment without unrolling the top of the bag. Perfectly sized to accommodate a multitude of organizational compartments, this carryall is perfect for life on the go.
