Tumi’s Latest Launch Is a Must for Anyone Who Travels With Jewelry
I don’t know about you, but traveling with jewelry has become somewhat of a pipe dream for me. I’ve never figured out how to pack jewelry in a way that would keep things intact and tangle-free, so while I’m admittedly an overpacker in all other categories, I’ve had to err on the side of caution and avoid packing jewelry altogether.
Fortunately for those of you who relate to this quandary, New York–based designer Eva Fehren and luggage brand Tumi have partnered to create a four-piece travel set designed to keep us a bit more organized as we prepare for holiday travel. Fehren’s minimalistic, edgy approach to jewelry aligns seamlessly with Tumi’s sleek and functional design aesthetic. Together they were able to create a perfectly modern travel set for today’s overpacker — ahem — fashion-forward traveler.
The set includes a tote with secret compartments and a pouch that can function as a clutch, wallet, or cross-body bag for the ultimate versatility. I’m most excited about the jewelry roll and jewelry box wrapped in Tumi's super-luxe leather, designed to store earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets, and watches to ensure that you won’t find your jewelry tangled, or worse, missing upon unpacking at your hotel.
Sprinkled throughout the collection is Fehren's signature dagger, providing a subtle but edgy accent to Tumi's usual stylishly spare design. While Tumi is most commonly known for its functionality, Tumi’s Creative Director Victor Sanz said, “As travel pieces become more and more of a fashion statement, it’s exciting to continue to introduce very fashion-focused pieces into Tumi’s repertoire."
His customers, he notes, also like to feel a connection to the pieces they wear. While most travel items are purely functional, this collaboration proves functionality doesn’t have to be drab. And when you arrive at your hotel with tangle-free necklaces and jewels (alas, wearable!), your look for your first night out on the town won't be drab, either.
