Come See Tumi’s Debut Aluminium Luggage Collection
When form meets function and practicality meets style, the result is 19 Degree, Tumi’s first-ever aluminium luggage collection.
Always trusted by well-heeled jetsetters for its premium travel, business and lifestyle accessories, Tumi is set to delight again with its first aluminium luggage collection, 19 Degree. Representing the pinnacle of travel gear, this new range combines the lightness and durability of the high-tech metal with cutting-edge design innovation and luxurious detailing to elevate not just a customer’s journey, but also his identity as a savvy and discerning traveller.
The design of the 19 Degree collection draws inspiration from the fluidity of nature and the precision of architectural lines, resulting in a modern masterpiece of meticulously crafted aluminium with strategically sculpted angles. With Tumi’s innovation, travel luggage transcends the utilitarian, and offers a unique blend of fashion, art and design that enhances a traveller’s varied experiences on the move.
One of the collection’s key features is a reinforced frame case design, which flaunts two snap closures for carry-on bags and three snap closures for check-in bags. Die-cast corner caps also offer incredible protection from rough handling. The luxury and functionality extend into the interior, with organisational features and exceptional aesthetic, including a lightweight lining with an embossed diamond pattern that complements the unique exterior pattern.
Of the collection’s design and conception, Tumi’s global creative director Michael Petry explains, “We approached it with the question: ‘How can we make our design less elementary and more elevated than what is already on the market?’ We felt our customer deserved a better design and product that not only performs, but looks cool while performing.”
No matter your travel needs—business, leisure, family or adventure, the 19 Degree collection will see to your every requirement with a product from its full range of carry-on and check-in sizes, such as the International Carry-On or the Extended Trip Packing Case. Available in silver or matte black, all styles feature integrated low-profile TSA locks, Tumi Tracer, a retractable moulded top and side carry handles wrapped with leather detailing.
In addition, its patented X-Brace 45 telescoping handle system crafted from lightweight yet sturdy aircraft-grade aluminium contributes to reduced luggage weight. Four cleverly engineered, dual-spinning recessed wheels also promise effortless manoeuvrability and greater packing capacity.
Those who desire more flash to their luggage could also check out the newly launched polycarbonate counterpart collection to the 19 Degree aluminium range. Masterfully wrapped in a special film that reflects light whenever the bag is moving, this style-centric range comes in silver, black and copper.
