Each McLaren x Tumi piece is designed to uncomplicate, while elevating performance in all aspects of life on the move.
McLaren’s designers, engineers, and racers travel thousands of miles around the world. Just as each driver relies on their car to get them across the finish line, the team depends on their luggage and travel necessities to get them to their destination. That inspiration manifests in the superior made-to-last quality of the new collection of luggage and travel accessories developed in partnership Tumi lifestyle brand.
Since announcing in 2019 that the two companies would work together, TUMI’s Creative Director, Victor Sanz and Rob Melville, McLaren’s supercar Design Director have created a premium capsule collection of elegant business, travel and everyday essentials.
Each encompasses elements of McLaren’s sleek, bold supercars and race cars. All are highlighted with McLaren’s
signature Papaya colourway and feature CX6 carbon fibre accents.
Key travel pieces include the Aero International Expandable 4 Wheel Carry-On and the Quantum Duffel. The carry-on 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.
