Perfecting the Journey with the TUMI Fall Winter 2016 Collection

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, stylish 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 Collection 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 the TUMI Fall/ Winter 2016 Tegra-Lite collection. Isn’t it insanely gorgeous?! Talk 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’s made from a super lightweight and exceptionally durable composite material called Tegris®, which is the same material used in the helmets for NASCAR drivers. Serious stuff! 

This limited edition print for Fall/ Winter 2016 called “Indigo Floral”, was inspired by Japanese brushstrokes that create 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? Seriously though, the large packing case is high up on my Wishlist, especially since I remember how amazing it was to travel with TUMI luggage.

I’m pretty sure couples with one TUMI in the family must also argue over who “The TUMI” belongs to. Which is why I love the fact that TUMI luggage now includes a beautiful monogrammable badge on all their luggage – 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 little Weekender Bag is this gorgeous TUMI Blackburn Duffle Bag from the 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 the Kirtland International Expandable 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), the TUMI ALPHA 2 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 nylon® 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 room to bring you back loads of 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 the worldwide launch), so keep an eye out!

Who knows, maybe we’ll be spotted twinning in our Indigo Floral Tegra’s at the airport.

Until then…
