How amazing a little trip to the Med would be! I miss those blue waters so much and would give anything to go back this summer! Well, by “this summer” I mean in July, when it’s summer there and winter here. And what better way to travel around the Mediterranean, or anywhere really, than with my favourite travel companion TUMI luggage?
In case you’re new to StyleScoop, I’ve had an addiction to this brand right from the start! I’m all about having luggage that’s beautiful and super high quality that makes travelling a breeze and what’s the harm at looking fancy at the airport too?
When I went to Dubai last year, I travelled with my beautiful Tegra Lite carry on and the fine folk at TUMI South Africa kindly loaned me the bigger one for my trip, and I tell you, travelling alone with luggage that glides and packs in a ton of choices is a priority I don’t think I could have done without.
I wanted to show you gals all the pretty, new things that TUMI has in store for Spring/ Summer 2016. The collection is inspired by the Mediterranean, a region with a tradition steeped in artistry and refined architecture. A destination that inspires an assortment of travel and lifestyle accessories for the Global Citizen, with a rich seasonal palette of vibrant colours including Moroccan Blue & Cayenne.
A collection that evokes the old world charm of the Mediterranean, which is beautifully illustrated in these pieces from the TUMI Voyageur collection.TUMI Voyageur is a collection of beautiful accessories that will not only make your travel packing a breeze, but I mean, look at how gorgeous they are! Tell me you don’t wish you could pack up in style with these pieces?
I’m also mildly obsessed with the Voyageur Sanibel Pouch and the Voyageur Monaco Travel Kit, because who doesn’t want to pack into something pretty?
I’m putting all 3 of these on my birthday wish list, especially the Voyageur Cayenne Q-Tote. It’s a perfect bag that will double up as a holiday beach bag, handbag, and airport strolling bag all in one. I love the print. Blue and white are my colours of happiness, and this one reminds me of exquisite Moroccan tiles – another obsession of mine!
In case you haven’t noticed, backpacks are hip. But you get backpacks and you get backpacks! How beautiful is this Voyageur Brive Sling Backpack in the colour Cayenne?
The Sinclair collection from TUMI is the brand’s stylish ladies range of every day handbags and once again, I’m mildly obsessed. I have a TUMI Sinclair Stella Tote (worn here and here) from last year’s collection which is one of my most prized possessions. Every time I wear it, I get tons of compliments and although pricey, its nowhere near the price tag of a “designer bag”, yet somehow, it’s sleekness, sophistication and timeless elegance still makes it every bit the lust worthy handbag you desire.
This season’s collection of Sinclair bags come in soft, beautifully muted tones that will compliment any look. I’ve got my eye on four in particular, namely the Sinclair Small Nora Tote, the Sinclair Harlow Backpack (pictured above) and
The Sinclair Q-Tote and for the corporate diva, there’s the Sinclair Tegan Business Tote (pictured above).
Such beautiful bags that just ooze style, sophistication and class! Beautifully made to last and keep their luxe appearance. They crafted from durable coated canvas with beautiful leather trims. Did I mention that all of these bags (as well as the full range of TUMI luggage) is monogrammable, making them even more special.
This service is offered free of charge to TUMI customers, so when you buy your bag from a TUMI store (there’s one at the V&A Waterfront and one at Sandton City), you can have it monogrammed right then and there and really put your name on it!
There’s lot of cool stuff from TUMI for the guys too, but I’ll leave the boy’s stuff for the guy bloggers to cover. I do however want to show you the star of the TUMI collection that is the ultimate travel icon, for guys and girls…
Say hello to the TUMI Tegra-Lite X Frame Large Trip Packing Case. A travel bag so beautiful it will have heads turning everywhere you wheel it. This bag can take the punishment of travel with its strong and durable materials, but if I’m totally honest, I don’t think I’d let anyone within 2 metres of it. It’s just too insanely beautiful!
This bag is special in every sense. It’s crafted from only the best materials, and the outside features a double coated lazer cut design that will blow your mind! Trust me! I’ve seen it, I’ve oogled it and I want it!
It also has a lock case instead of a zip case making it much safer, in addition to all the other bells and whistles that make the Tumi Tegra-lite one of the best travel cases on the market.
