Fall 2018 Collection

Known for its simplicity, functionality and minimalism at its heart, Scandinavian design is rooted in the elements of nature and tradition of craft. The TUMI Fall 2018 collection takes inspiration from this magical region and explores these ideas, focusing on the relationship between the technical and the handcrafted.

“Throughout the design process we asked ourselves, how can we take something industrial and give it a human touch? Or conversely, how can we take something nature-inspired and put a tech spin on it? Our resulting collection is a study in color, texture, and tone. You’ll see a new take on camouflage, classic florals modernised with shifting contrasts and reflective pops, and subtle texture play that adds new dimension to classic TUMI fabrics. You’ll see new materials and reimagined techniques for existing ones. Most of all, you’ll see a subtle perspective shift that is the culmination of putting these ideas through our own TUMI filter. We feel this process has helped us create our own kind of magic, and we’re certain that you will, too,” says Victor Sanz, Creative Director for TUMI.
