Luggage that Literally Stands Out
T+L favorite Tumi recently announced that it would be releasing a limited-edition luggage collection in collaboration with cutting-edge fashion/concept shop Opening Ceremony. The occasion? The launch of OC's new, travel-themed store in New York City’s super-hip Ace Hotel.
The goods: Two rollaboards ($595 each), a satchel ($295), and a laptop case ($175) in exclusive color-blocked shades of the label’s signature ballistic nylon. Each piece is cool enough to make a stylish traveler swoon—and bright enough that it won't get lost in baggage claim. The good news: The bags hit stores next Friday, May 14. The bad news: Tumi only made 100 of each. More good news: you can pre-order them at the Ace location or by clicking here.
You can also get electronics adapters ($25) and luggage tags ($50) to match, but only at the Ace store. While you’re there, take some time to browse a range of one-off accessories (Opening Ceremony–branded toiletry kits, velvet espadrille-slash-hotel-slippers) and "unsouvenirs" (prawn cocktail-flavored Walkers potato crisps from Britain, an assortment of Japanese toothpastes) from around the world.
