Whenever I travel, the journey is half the fun! Whether it’s an overseas getaway to Europe, a quick flight to Durbs or a weekend roadtrip closer to home, I just love the whole experience of travel. The other thing I love is luggage! Smart, stylishÂ luggage that not only gets your trip off to a good start, but makes the whole process of travel more seamless.
I got a little sneak peek at TUMI’s latest Autumn/ Winter 2016 CollectionÂ and let me tell you, that it is absolutely swoon-worthy! Making now the perfect time to invest if you’re in the market for luggage, that will have you Perfecting the Journey!
This is one of the designs for theÂ TUMIÂ Fall/ Winter 2016Â Tegra-Lite collection. Isn’t it insanely gorgeous?! TalkÂ about luggage with serious style! Where else would you get a bag that looks this good and is super strong too? From TUMI of course!
TUMI’s Tegra-Lite range is, in my option, the best luggage to have. It’sÂ made from a super lightweight and exceptionally durable composite material calledÂ TegrisÂ®, which is the same material used inÂ the helmets for NASCAR drivers. Serious stuff!Â
This limited edition print forÂ Fall/ Winter 2016Â called “Indigo Floral”, was inspired by Japanese brushstrokes that createÂ an abstract interpretation to illustrate a free thinking flow of energy and expression.
Since my hubby practically claimed ownership of my Tegra-Light carry on, I think he needs to save up and buy me this girly duo. What do you think? SeriouslyÂ though,Â the large packing case is high up on my Wishlist,Â especially since I rememberÂ how amazing it wasÂ to travel with TUMI luggage.
I’m prettyÂ sure couples with one TUMI in the family must also argueÂ overÂ who “The TUMI”Â belongs to. Which is why I love the fact that TUMI luggageÂ now includes a beautiful monogrammableÂ badgeÂ on all their luggageÂ – including the Tegra-Light collection.
Genius! You can get your initials monogrammed on your TUMI at any TUMI store, and it’s free of charge!
The other TUMI bag that caught my eye, which would totally make for the perfect littleÂ WeekenderÂ BagÂ is this gorgeousÂ TUMI Blackburn Duffle BagÂ from theÂ Haydon collection.
You would have already seen it on my July Shopping Wishlist post, but can we just take a moment to admire it once again? And how perfectly perfect does this navy beaut match the floral Tegra Lite Carry On?
I’m in love!
Then there’s a new seasonal print for the Alpha Bravo Collection called “Smoke Character”.
This range is developed for the young at heart, adventure junkies. Styled to look like upright duffle bags, the Alpha Bravo range features lots of cool zippers and storage space and this upcoming seasonal print is like a super cool take on camo.
This is theÂ Kirtland InternationalÂ ExpandableÂ bag. It’s a deceptively small bag, but packs in a whole lot of punch, with its masterfully organized interior. Inside, it’s got three dividers for separating outfits or dedicates from heavier items.
For the traveling business man (or woman who want’s to look sleek), theÂ TUMIÂ ALPHA 2Â range in the new colour “Earl Grey” is striking, stylish and sophisticated!
TUMI’s ALPHA 2 range is the brands’ business ready range, made from TUMI’s signature FXT ballistic nylonÂ® which is a durable, coated canvas that looks incredible and feels great.
This is the Double Expansion Travel Satchel in the new shade and offers an impressive 13″ of expanded depth. So gals, he’ll have plenty of extra roomÂ to bring you back loads ofÂ gifts!
Besides beautiful luggage and smart travel, TUMI have also introduced a new range of brightly coloured small leather goods. From sleek and mood lifting wallets to card holders, passport holders to luggage tags! This brand really is about Perfecting the Journey!
If you’re in the market for new luggage, make sure you stop by TUMI (in Sandton City, V&A Waterfront or OR Tambo) and go check out their luggage. The new colour ranges for Autumn/ Winter 2016 will hit SA in September (in line with theÂ worldwide launch), so keep an eye out!
Who knows, maybe we’ll be spotted twinning in our Indigo FloralÂ Tegra’s at the airport.
