New Tumi x McLaren Luggage Collection

Looking for carry-on luggage and day bags made to last? Tumi continues its collaboration with McLaren with the release of a new capsule collection. 

The new collection, designed and developed in partnership with luxury supercar maker and Formula 1 team, McLaren, features nine pieces ranging from carry-on luggage to utility pouches. 

Created by Tumi’s Creative Director Victor Sanz and Rob Melville, McLaren’s supercar Design Director, the new premium capsule collection includes nine elegant business, travel and everyday essentials, each of which is designed to uncomplicate while elevating performance in all aspects of life on the move. 

Embodying Tumi and McLaren’s mutual ethos of performance luxury, the capsule collection’s pieces each encompasses elements of McLaren’s sleek, bold supercars and race cars, including the marque’s signature Papaya colourway and feature CX6 carbon fibre accents. 

“For me, this is the ultimate collaboration as Tumi and McLaren have an innate synergy, says Victor Sanz. 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.”

Key travel pieces include the Aero International Expandable 4 Wheel Carry-On, which is crafted in a hybrid of materials, including Tegris, an extremely hard-wearing thermoplastic composite found in race cars. The hard shell is contrasted by a moulded fabric front panel with a supercar-influenced design that is echoed throughout the collaboration. 

This solid build allows the collection to protect the contents it carries, incorporating further elements of McLaren’s supercar designs. The interior features a compression strap that takes its cues from the six-point racing harnesses found in its race cars and track-only models such as the limited-edition McLaren Senna GTR. 

The Velocity Backpack was created to keep wearers connected all day long thanks to the inclusion of a USB port and padded laptop compartment. Tumi’s hallmark “Add-a-Bag” sleeve makes it a fitting companion to the collection’s carry-on. 

The Torque Sling and Lumin Utility Pouch are additional contemporary styles for light-carry and hands-free days. The Orbit Small Packing Cube, Trace Expandable Organizer, and split compartment Teron Travel Kit are all ultra-portable accessories to keep your belongings protected, organised, and readily available through every leg of your journey.
