Tumi, the luxury brand of travel, business and lifestyle accessories, introduces the newly redesigned T-Tech collection, designed by executive creative director David Chu. The line will debut this September in over 600 doors, including Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s.
With its rugged, modern style, T-Tech is designed to appeal to anyone with an appetite for adventure. From hard cases to duffels and messenger bags, the T-Tech line will endure any environment—whether you’re in the wilds of Masai Mara or the jungle that is midtown Manhattan.
The fall 2008 collection comprises three distinct groupings, all sporting a new logo. The first is a polycarbonate collection of wheeled cases, sleek in design with a high gloss finish. Lightweight, strong and flexible, the cases feature the organized, spacious interiors synonymous with Tumi. Available in liquid black, titanium color, or flame yellow, the cases also come with a contoured design that offers added strength and durability. Unique to the medium-sized case are four rotating wheels, allowing for greater mobility in stability.
T-Tech Hydro, is, as the name suggests, a line that won’t leave you all wet. With its striking rubber-like touch and dry-bag appearance, hydro bags are made from a bonded polyurethane and high-performance polyester that is 98 percent water-resistant and can withstand temps of 20 degrees below freezing without cracking. Heat-welded seams, and inverted, watertight zippers keep water from seeping in, making these bags the ideal accessory for even the most drenching conditions, from hiking, canoeing, or snowboarding to just a trip to the gym. Hydro comes in grey, black or an eye-popping orange, with four styles that include a duffel, backpack, messenger and roll top.
