Because travel luggage can be so same-old same-old these days, you know, the drab black canvas ones that look like everyone else’s or those cheap lurid plastic ones that give you an instant migraine. Which is why when I see something that doesn’t take itself too seriously in a colour combination that’s actually fun, I’m sold.
From Tumi comes the new Jonathan Alder collection, a small limited edition capsule collab that has all your travel essentials covered. From carry-on pieces and luggage in different sizes to luggage tags, packing cubes and even travel totes in 2 sizes, it’s guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone’s face, especially after one of those long-haul flights in economy with grouchy air stewardesses in tow.
To be released in Singapore in staggered batches, 2 pieces of luggage are now available at Tumi Ngee Ann City, both colourful and quite affordable too, if I might add. First up, the Continental Carry-On which comes with the words ‘Are We There Yet?‘ emblazoned across it. Something you’ll often hear if you travelled with kids or with impatient adults like me, it retails for just SGD905.
There’s also the Medium Trip Packing Case, which come in Alder’s typical style of using geometric patterns in bold colours that are both visually arresting and one of first pieces of luggage you’ll see as it hits the luggage conveyer belt. Guaranteed.
Priced at SGD1125 (I did say they were affordable, no?), you’ll also find all the standard bells ands whistles of any quality Tumi luggage, from its tough triple-layer polycarbonate shell to TSA-approved locks and even a removable garment sleeve. What’s not to love, right?
