Each item in the nine-piece collection was designed to incorporate elements from the automaker’s road and race cars
April 7, 2021: There’s nothing better than a weekend road trip in a McLaren. Surely you require special luggage that perfectly fits your ride. Taking inspiration from this, high-end luggage manufacturer Tumi has teamed up with luxury supercar maker and Formula 1 team, McLaren, to create a capsule-shaped luggage series that fully embodies the spirit of each brand and is extremely stylish, allowing you to travel anytime, anywhere.
Design, combined with cutting-edge technology and enhanced with a focused aesthetic defines the TUMI brand. Both companies take the pursuit of excellence seriously, regardless of cost, which is the basis of this collaboration series.
The new series includes nine items, including a sports bag, a backpack with an integrated USB port, and a travel suit.
Each piece is specially designed. It combines the road and racing elements of the car manufacturer, such as CCX6 carbon fiber accents and the iconic papaya orange colorway. The Aero International Expandable 4 Wheel Carry-O, for example, has a sturdy thermoplastic composite shell and exposes an internal compression strap inspired by the six-point racing harness of the brand's exclusive racing car. Other supercar-inspired items include a utility pouch, a small packing cube, and an expandable organizer.
“At McLaren, we focus on developing a clear design language and selecting materials that match the performance of our vehicles and define their performance,” said Rob Melville, brand design director. "We want to capture these aspects through Tumi, so we spent a lot of time analyzing and perfecting all aspects of this series."
