Tumi and luxury supercar maker McLaren have unveiled their brand-new line-up of co-created, premium travel accessories and luggage, expanding upon their sought-after debut collection that launched globally earlier this year.

For this newest collection, Tumi and McLaren have crafted nine additional pieces, extending the collaborative range to include small leather goods, outerwear, and sleeker silhouettes. Key pieces of the collection include The Halo Backpack and M-Tech Soft Satchel.

The Halo Backpack features a molded front panel, a padded sleeve that can hold up to a 14-inch laptop, and a built-in USB port for on-the-go recharging. It is accented with carbon fiber, papaya highlights, a leather handle, and magnetic zippers featuring subtle Tumi and McLaren branding.

The M-Tech Soft Satchel is fashioned with both an articulated papaya-accented padded shoulder strap and leather top carry handles to offer adaptability while keeping you on the move.

The range presents three additional, compact styles. The universal Brox Slim Utility Pouch is perfect for those who prefer to only carry the essentials. The Fuel Crossbody is a new streamlined design that offers hands-free and versatile wearability that can be fashioned as a crossbody or worn around the waist. The Remex Accessory Kit is small enough to take away on vacation or holiday, to the gym or the office for a touch of hybrid working, complete with a clear window accent that provides a quick view to easily spot your belongings.

Rounding out the collection’s smaller goods are the Global Double Billfold, Passport Cover, and Folding Card Case. Each is exquisitely fashioned in leather and highlighted with papaya-colored metal hardware, carbon fiber, and embossed branding, which make them perfect for holiday gifting.

The final piece making its debut in Tumi | McLaren’s latest drop is the TUMIPAX Men’s Vest. The collaboration’s first venture into outerwear is an updated version of the travel brand’s classic TUMIPAX style, featuring a water-resistant shell and conveniently converts to a travel pillow. This piece innovatively features a crossbody strap for easy carrying while in pillow mode. Available in select markets.

Our shared goal is to give everyone an opportunity to engage with this amazing collaboration.”

”The shared ethos of technical innovation, high-quality materials, and cutting-edge design behind the Tumi and McLaren brands is what makes this collaboration such a natural fit,” added Rob Melville, design director for McLaren Automotive. “We both seek to elevate the customer experience through optimum performance. These additional pieces are all about making those moments of travel and reconnection, that we’ve all been yearning for, truly special.”
