I was able to fly high and feel the Miami vibe last February, as I got first dibs on TUMI’s Spring 2014 collection. The launch took place at 71 Grammercy, deemed as the city’s highest peak. The trendy lounge proves to be a fitting venue for the Miami-inspired theme of TUMI, a premium travel and lifestyle brand that features a dynamic assortment of travel bags and luggage that combine modernism with timeless and traditional sensibilities. All while centring on the exotic and urbanistic Miami scene.

This wall graffiti was created during the event. Two talented men spray painted this Miami artwork by themselves. I was actually tempted to try and paint the corner but I guess I would’ve ruined it if I did. Heehee.
Enzo Lim, esteemed bartender of New York’s Maharlika Filipino-Moderno and Jeepney Filipino Gastropub concocted refreshments with Ketel One, TUMI’s official drink sponsor.
Karen Pamintuan hosted the event and gave a brief background on TUMI which pays homage to artisanal design and elegant styling.
Warning: the following photos are definitely drool worthy. I’m sure you’ll find a bag or two that you would want to include on your wish list.
TUMI takes a different take on mobile accessories. Colorful yet chic is what this set evokes.
TUMI Spring 2014 Women’s Travel and Business.
The heart and should of the Spring 2014 line is the Santa Monica collection. It celebrates substantial artisanal design and elegance. It exudes the essence of coastal living in Southern California. It’s a simplistic variety of men’s and women’s lifestyle accessories.
My favorite from the Santa Monica collection is this Sycamore Tote and Palisades Crossbody Clutch. Perfect for traveling and perfect for everyday use. Ang ganda lang no? Shucks. I. Drool.

TUMI TEGRA-LITE Travel 2014 Collection.
TUMI debuts two new colours for its strongest, lights and toughest Tegra-Lite travel collection. New hues of Viridian and Iridium join the existing assortment of Graphite, White and Black color ways. Aaaaah I’ve always dreamed of having my very own TUMI Tegra-Lite but I always find the basic colors too elite for my non-elite status hihi, now that I’ve seen the viridian, I couldn’t help but lust over having one! Lakas maka-jetsetter I swear!
TUMI Alpha 2 Collection. The Alpha 2 is updated with innovative technologies as the line ranges from slim, expandable and carry-on suitcases to wheeled duffels and garment bags in two and four-wheel styles.
My favorite TUMI Spring 2014 Collection is this Jonathan Adler Collection. This bold and whimsical line by Jonathan Adler, who is known for his use of geometric patterns and bold colors, reflects the spirit of irreverent luxury. It’s playful and practical, the collection imbibes a bonafide chic spirit for the glamorous eccentric jetsetter.
Jonathan Adler’s groovy iconic prints and cheeky statements land on TUMI’s best-selling Voyageur and Vapor collections which include wheeled travel suitcases, carry-on cases, travel bags, accessories, duffel bags, and more. In true Adler fashion, the assortment will surely make a statement with its “Are We There Yet?” slogans plastered on a carry-on case, and the “This is Mine” travel bag. Supeeeer kyoot the “Are We There Yet”luggage. Bet ko din sya! For the younger ones (or not) who would want to add color & style to their travel essentials, I suggest you get this iconic patterned luggage by Jonathan Adler x TUMI. You can definitely spot your luggage a mile away in this irresistible chic print.
