TUMI has unveiled its new collection designed and developed in partnership with McLaren.
The capsule collection comprises nine pieces, highlighted with McLaren's Papaya colorway and feature CX6 carbon fiber accents. Selections include the Aero International expandable 4-wheel carry-on, the Quantum duffel and the Velocity backpack.
"For me, this is the ultimate collaboration as TUMI and McLaren have an innate synergy," says Victor Sanz, creative director, TUMI. "We're two like-minded brands who share the same values — unparalleled quality, technical innovation and design excellence. The value of this partnership, however, extends beyond the product. With a keen focus on lifestyle, we design for the betterment of the customer experience. With McLaren's advanced technology and our top-of-the-line materials, our gear can tackle the most arduous excursions and still effortlessly translate into daily life."
"When I first met with Victor to define the collection, we quickly realized that we each brought a shared creative vision for what we wanted to achieve," says Rob Melville, design director, McLaren Automotive. "At McLaren we focus on articulating a clear design language and materials selection which combines and leads into our car's performance. We wanted to capture those aspects with TUMI, so we've spent a great deal of time analyzing and refining every aspect of this collection. The result is something that I am incredibly proud of and that I believe will elevate the owner's experience while serving as a reminder that, like our cars, it's about enjoying the journey and not simply the destination."
"McLaren strives to push the boundaries of design, performance and perfection in everything it does, whether on the road or the track," says Mark Waller, chief commercial officer, McLaren Racing. "This collaboration exemplifies that spirit. We are delighted to be collaborating with TUMI on this collection. We look forward to seeing our race team use it around the world as we commence the 2021 Formula 1 season."
The collection is available now via TUMI.com, TUMI's Global retail stores, McLarenstore.com and select McLaren retailers globally.
