Sleek. Strong. Everything in its proper place.
Descriptions worthy of both top-notch luggage and race cars. So the just-released bag collaboration between McLaren and Tumi makes sense. The new range is comprised of nine pieces, all featuring the carmaker’s signature Papaya colorway and CCX6 carbon-fiber accents.
Among the bags: The Aero International Expandable 4 Wheel Carry-On, a hardshell crafted partially from Tegris (a thermoplastic composite found in race cars) and featuring an interior compression strap inspired by the six-point racing harnesses found in McLaren’s track models, including the limited-edition Senna GTR.
Other bags in the collection include the Velocity Backpack (featuring a built-in USB port and padded laptop compartment), Torque Sling, Lumin Utility Pouch, Orbit Small Packing Cube, Trace Expandable Organizer and the split compartment Teron Travel Kit.
“At McLaren we focus on articulating a clear design language and materials selection which combines and leads into our car’s performance,” says Rob Melville, Design Director for McLaren Automotive, in a press release. “We wanted to capture those aspects with TUMI, so we’ve spent a great deal of time working to analyze and refine every aspect of this collection.”
Prices range from $85 for a luggage tag to $1,550 for the wheeled carry-on.
