Whether a backpack, tote, or crossbody, a bag should never be thought of as merely a functional carryall for holding the everyday necessities—a bag has the powerful ability to elevate and transform one’s look. As daily travel has evolved from simply commuting to and from work—with stops at the gym, lunch meetings and various work events in between—a versatile carryall that can meet the aesthetic needs of the workplace and the functional needs for transporting all the essentials is a requisite accessory today. For Spring 2017, TUMI continues to celebrate its heritage of design excellence, updating the women’s collection with youthful pops of color and playful prints.
Verona, the highly contemporary soft and luxurious collection that pairs a lustrous, ultra-lightweight nylon with a glossy leather trim, is rejuvenated for spring. Cool meets functional with the new Harley Convertible Backpack (79018). Offered in both Navy and Green, this backpack can be worn in the traditional manner or converted into a tote by tucking the straps into the back of the bag. The roomy interior holds a laptop in a softly padded compartment and a microfiber pocket, to safeguard delicate items such as sunglasses, jewelry or a watch. The flap front design and speed-clip closure give this backpack a sporty feel while remaining both fashionable and functional. The casually stylish Cassidy Satchel (79015) can ingeniously transform from a top-handle satchel into a crossbody with a removable, adjustable strap. This highly functional interior of this compact design provides for immaculate organization.
The Voyageur collection continues to offer streamlined, lightweight designs with sophisticated and feminine details. These updated silhouettes have been reimagined with gunmetal hardware; and an array of new seasonal colors, including Cadet, Pink, Jungle Green, Blur Print and the Cuban-inspired Banana Leaf Print. Made for practicality without sacrificing style, the Small Lola Messenger (494769) combines a saddle bag silhouette with that of a messenger bag. With ample exterior and interior organizational pockets and a zippered pass-through that allows access to the main compartment, this carryall can seamlessly transition from work to weekend. The relaxed Ruth Satchel (494767) is constructed from lightweight-yet-durable nylon that retains its structure. It can be carried as a tote or worn as a crossbody with a removable and adjustable crossbody strap. Introduced for the spring season, the SLG assortment is offered in nylon with leather trim in Black and seasonal Cadet color ways. These can’t-miss silhouettes include the Zip-Around Continental (93900), Flap Continental (93901) and Flap Card Case (93903).
From the notably stylish Voyageur collection comes a select array of bestselling TUMI silhouettes reimagined in luxurious pebbled leather and meticulously appointed with gold hardware. The Small Daniella Backpack (17002D) is carefully designed to accommodate the daily necessities and other small accessories in a petite silhouette. Ideal for business, travel and everyday activities, the Calais Backpack (17000D) features a dedicated laptop compartment and multifunctional interior and exterior pockets for safeguarding personal items. The chic and versatile Tristen Crossbody (17003) features three separate pouches. The front pouch snaps off and may be worn alone as a shoulder bag or carried as a clutch when the straps are detached.
