Jet set in style with Tumi's travel bags
By Bervin Cheong
With designs that are sleek and contemporary, Tumi’s Spring 2013 travel bags can follow you anywhere.
IF you are fashion conscious, travelling can be a tad more worrying than it already is. Aside from the niggling details of your planned trip, you now have to worry about your appearance as you rush about trying to make it to your destination.
Naturally, it is a chic image – akin to one having just stepped off the fashion runway and straight onto the airport runway – that is most yearned for.
To look fabulous while travelling, it is not merely the clothes you put on that matter; fashion dictates that you complement your outfit with a stylish travel bag.
Fortunately, there are such bags available that can help you jet set in good style.
Tumi, for example, has some beautifully crafted luggage options for all. The brand’s various Spring 2013 collections adhere to this same quality and are perfect for trendy travellers.
For women, the Anna Sui collection from the brand will surely excite. It combines Tumi’s smart detailing and lightweight designs with Anna Sui’s colourful floral print. There are also embellishments, like an interior striped lining and miniature flower appliqués, that further add a light-hearted spirit to all the different bags within the collection.
Travelling gentlemen may want to check out the season’s Alpha Lightweight, Tegra-Lite, Ducati Retro, Beacon Hill or Alpha Bravo collections. These different collections all have travel bags that are hardy, yet lightweight. They also come in various neutral colours and materials such as leather or canvas – and super durable ballistic nylon or Tegris (a revolutionary polypropylene thermoplastic composite material).
Spring 2013 also marks the launch of Tumi’s signature Ticon collection. The range – distinguished by a classic double-lined “T” logo applied onto ballistic nylon or leather of the bags – is said to symbolise the brand’s commitment to unparalleled functionality, durability and superior technical innovation.
In this regard, the Ticon collection emphasises superior protection. Each bag from the collection comes equipped with an exclusive feature, known as “ID Lock”. It is a unique material comprised of metal threads woven into the fabric, which creates a shield behind the lining that prevents personal information encoded onto one’s identification cards, credit cards and other documents from being read.
It is obvious that Tumi’s Spring 2013 collections come with a wide range of options. From roomier luggage bags, to day bags or even travel backpacks, they can be carried for any purpose that you see fit.
There are also travel accessories from the brand such as cosmetic pouches, shoe bags and jewellery cases. Mobile accessories round up the assortment, with iPhone, iPad and Kindle cases and carriers.
The different products within Tumi’s Spring 2013 collections are priced from RM100. Currently available at all Tumi boutiques nationwide.
