TUMI has launched an exclusive collaboration with streetwear brand, STAPLE. The two have joined forces on a design journey guided by the world travels of STAPLE’s founder, Jeff Staple. Each collection piece features the STAPLE Pigeon, while drawing influence from the global streets that inspire the creativity of both Jeff Staple and TUMI. 

The Pigeon is an integral part of the STAPLE brand and serves as a mascot that represents New York City. 

The collection includes five new styles, with Pigeon pink and New York City-esque map lining throughout as a nod to the city that raised Jeff Staple. 

The collection includes: 

  • A backpack donning a pattern inspired by the streets of São Paulo 

  • A sling that takes its cues from Tokyo 

  • A Ping Pong crossbody featuring a print that echoes the tiles of Barcelona 

  • A kit crossbody, referencing Los Angeles architecture 

  • An International Expandable 4-wheeled carry-on showcasing an intricate design of a STAPLE Pigeon camouflage inspired by New York City. 

“Jeff Staple is an innovator and an entrepreneur,” says Victor Sanz, creative director, TUMI. “He has never settled and has always pushed himself to go beyond the norm to bring streetwear culture to the global stage. Jeff is a true global citizen, as he exemplifies the world traveler that doesn’t lose his sense of home or where he has come from, while embracing other cultures for inspiration and self-growth. This truly is in line with how we view the world. We are always looking outside for inspiration and always building on our fundamentals.”

“For me, TUMI has always been the pinnacle of luxury, travel, innovation and tech,” says Staple. “There is a strong commonality in both our brands between travel and performance, and how the experience affects your everyday life. I’ve come to really appreciate the value of well-designed travel accessories, especially when you are in a new city and constantly on the go. Design-wise, the hustle mentality that the STAPLE Pigeon represents started out as a way to speak to the culture of New York City, but over the course of my travels, I’ve come to see that it represents this same ethos in cities across the globe. With this TUMI collaboration, we are bringing that spirit full circle through the unique and elevated design details in each style of the collection.”
