This summer, TUMI and Orlebar Brown, the British luxury swimwear brand known for its modern, tailored swim shorts and photographic prints, collaborate for the first time to bring innovative and playful weekend totes to their consumers worldwide.
The TUMI Orlebar Brown collection will be sold in travel retail exclusively in the TUMI shops at Munich and London City Airports.
Combining Orlebar Brown’s distinct style with TUMI’s reputation for high quality and performance lifestyle collections, the outcome displays contemporary travel at its best.
Drawing constant inspiration from Slim Aarons’ iconic pictures of Riviera and Palm Beach life during the decade, Orlebar Brown and TUMI have re-interpreted the 1960s poolside utopia into an aptly energetic weekend travel assortment.
“It’s easy to draw parallels between OB and TUMI and the quality we produce. We both strive to be best in class with a genuine attention to detail. Our ethos is around celebrating travel and TUMI are experts in this field with a clear commitment to innovation. It has been a wonderful project,” says Adam Brown, Founder of Orlebar Brown.
This exclusive four-piece tote collection reflects both brands’ approach to summer dressing in navy, khaki, and printed canvas with a coordinating navy interior. Each tote has a waterproof rubber base, making it a perfect companion for a day spent poolside or a weekend at the beach.
Additional features include leather carry handles, a strap tuck lock closure, a back slip pocket for the last minute essentials, a hanging luggage tag that has the ability to be monogrammed, and the TUMI owned Add-a-Bag™ strap on the back.
“A large part of travel is about relaxation and enjoying the places you’re going. This collaboration is all about the leisure of travel. Sometimes your travels include taking a break from the day-to-day and enjoying it poolside; to us, Orlebar Brown exemplifies that experience and state of mind,” says Victor Sanz, TUMI Creative Director.
In addition to Munich and London City Airports, the collection is available globally in select TUMI and Orlebar Brown stores, as well as TUMI.com and orlebarbrown.com. Priced from £295-£395/295€-395€.
