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.Â 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 addictionÂ to this brand right from the start! I’m all about having luggage that’s beautiful andÂ 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 AfricaÂ 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 haveÂ 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 withÂ a tradition steeped in artistryÂ and refined architecture. A destinationÂ that inspiresÂ an assortmentÂ of travel and lifestyle accessories for the Global Citizen, with a rich seasonalÂ palette of vibrant coloursÂ including Moroccan Blue & Cayenne.
A collection that evokes the old world charm of the Mediterranean, which is beautifully illustrated in these pieces fromÂ the TUMI VoyageurÂ collection.TUMI VoyageurÂ 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 alsoÂ mildly obsessed with theÂ Voyageur Sanibel PouchÂ and theÂ Voyageur MonacoÂ Travel Kit,Â becauseÂ who doesn’tÂ want to pack into something pretty?
I’m putting all 3 ofÂ these on my birthday wish list, especially theÂ Voyageur Cayenne Q-Tote. It’sÂ aÂ 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 thisÂ Voyageur Brive Sling BackpackÂ in the colour Cayenne?Â
TheÂ Sinclair collection from TUMIÂ is the brand’s stylish ladies range of every day handbags and once again, I’m mildly obsessed. I have aÂ TUMI Sinclair Stella Tote (wornÂ 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 itÂ everyÂ bit the lust worthy handbag you desire.
This season’s collection ofÂ SinclairÂ bags come in soft,Â beautifully muted tones that will compliment any look. I’ve got my eye on four in particular, namely theÂ Sinclair Small Nora Tote, theÂ Sinclair Harlow Backpack (pictured above) and
TheÂ Sinclair Q-ToteÂ and for the corporate diva, there’s theÂ Sinclair Tegan Business ToteÂ (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.Â Did I mention that all of these bags (as well as the full range of TUMI luggage) is monogrammable, making themÂ 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, Â 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 theÂ TUMI Tegra-Lite X Frame Large Trip Packing Case. A travel bagÂ 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 metresÂ 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 coatedÂ lazer cutÂ 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 caseÂ instead of a zip case making itÂ much safer, in addition to all the otherÂ bells and whistles that make the Tumi Tegra-lite one of the best travel cases on the market.
