TUMI introduces Fall 2013 Collection

Back in the day, travelling wasn’t just a simple matter of arriving at a certain point; rather, it is a thrilling experience that is just as memorable as the destination itself. Reviving the glitz and old world glamour of travelling, TUMI, the leading international brand of premium travel, business and lifestyle accessories, held an intimate press gathering last September 10 at Stella Wood-fired Bistro in Bonifacio High Street Central.
Inspired by the era of the 1960’s, TUMI’s Fall 2013 Collection took center stage in a special preview heralding the time when the art of travelling was at its peak of high-life popularity and excitement; when transiting was all about style and sophistication.

Intent on taking guests back in time, the setting imbibed an air of sophisticated retro glamour to reflect the collection itself. During the affair, media attendees and industry personalities were treated to a sumptuous spread accompanied by refreshing drinks that bore the season’s predominant color palette of Lava and Baltic.

As guests roamed around and observed the pieces from the Fall 2013 Collection, sales representatives were on hand to assist and entertain questions. Soon, TUMI’s brand manager, Frances de Guzman took the floor to officially present TUMI’s latest collection. De Guzman began by making a short introduction about TUMI and went on to expand on the theme and inspirations that resulted in the design direction of the Fall line.

This season, TUMI’s design philosophy focused on catering to the demands of the modern-day warriors without compromising style and elegance. This time, the collection is driven by the old-world glamour of travelling as executed in rich colors that are infused in each sophisticated design without sacrificing TUMI’s excellent brand of unparalleled quality and reliable performance.

The men’s fall 2013 collection pairs utilitarian appeal with classic styling and construction. Mixed materials and rich seasonal hues like Baltic, Orange and Bordeaux contrast a neutral palette of Black and Earl Grey, all identified across the business, day bag and travel categories. Making its debut for the Fall 2013 season, the Astor collection of briefcases and soft carry-ons are top of the business class. Staple accessories for work or leisure, styles such as backpacks, totes and carry-alls, are redefined in the TICON, Alpha Bravo, Beacon Hill and Virtue collections.

Astor elevates TUMI’s heritage of design excellence to a new standard, blending classic silhouettes with retro-inspired craftsmanship. The ultimate statement piece found in both business and travel incorporates subtle detailing: a magnetic “T” attachment connector for shoulder straps and handles, monogram patch frames with beveled edge design and custom-designed lock hardware.
Made from a selection of TUMI’s iconic ballistic nylon, Saffiano leather or textured canvas, the Regis Slim Brief and Dorilton Slim Flap Brief add flair and function to any work attire. For a work-to-weekend trip, the Waldorf Soft Duffel and Trinity Soft Carry-On are perfect for layering in essentials.

Launched in February 2013, TICON represents a modern icon for the brand; infusing the identifiable TUMI“T” patterned logo onto best-selling styles. Tracing back to the brand’s heritage of technical innovation and functional design, TUMI introduced a unique protective feature onto most styles within the TICON collection, TUMI ID LOCKTM. Identified by a red interior pocket and zipper pulls, ID LOCK repels against one’s personal information getting virtually transmitted through RFID-enabled belongings such as credit cards and passports.
