As we all start contemplating the idea of traveling again, TUMI and McLaren are giving us cause to add a few new pieces of luggage into our rotation. This interesting collaboration between TUMI, a leading international travel and lifestyle brand, and McLaren, luxury supercar maker and Formula 1 Team, brings us the TUMI x McLaren Bag Collection. The newly-released capsule collection is comprised of nine luggage pieces including the Aero International Expandable 4 Wheel Carry-On. The carry-on is crafted in a hybrid of materials, including Tegris®, an extremely hard-wearing thermoplastic composite found in race cars. The hard shell is contrasted by a molded-fabric front panel with a supercar-influenced design that is echoed throughout the collaboration.
The new capsule collection also includes the Velocity Backpack, Torque Sling, Teron Travel Kit, and several smaller pieces, all designed to address the needs of elegant business and pleasure travel. The nine pieces contain elements of McLaren’s sleek, bold supercars and race cars. All are highlighted with McLaren’s signature Papaya colorway and feature CX6® carbon fiber accents. Each piece in the collection features an interior compression strap that takes its cues from the six-point racing harnesses found in McLaren’s race cars and track-only models such as the limited-edition McLaren Senna GTR. Embodying TUMI and McLaren’s mutual ethos of performance luxury, the capsule collection makes us truly excited to hit the road again.
