After unleashing a plethora of collabs for STAPLE DAY 2022, STAPLE has now added one more name to its long list of collaborators, TUMI.
TUMI is known for its assortment of luxury travel accessories, including luggage, backpacks, crossbody bags, and more, which tends to interest all those who love taking luxury travel holidays and vacations. Of course, not everyone can afford it, but the people who can fund their vacations through famed luxury travel experts would perhaps be on the lookout for unique travel accessories like this brand offers.
That being the case, the collaboration with STAPLE includes five pieces, each inspired by a different global city, nodding to global street culture and the world travels that inspire Jeff Staple. Of course, each piece features the iconic Pigeon logo, an integral part of the STAPLE brand. Each piece is also lined with a New York City-esque map as a nod to the city that raised the STAPLE founder.
The fives styles in the collection includes a Backpack ($695 USD) donning a pattern inspired by the street of Sāo Paulo, a compact Sling ($495 USD) that takes design cues from Tokyo and the iconic Shibuya crossing, a Ping Pong Crossbody ($250 USD) featuring a print that echoes the tiles of Barcelona, a Kit Crossbody ($295 USD) that references Los Angeles architecture, and the International Carry-On ($1195 USD) decked out in a STAPLE Pigeon camo that represents NYC.
“For me, TUMI has always been the pinnacle of luxury, travel, innovation and tech,” says Jeff Staple, founder of STAPLE and Reed Art Department. “There is a strong commonality in both our brands between travel and performance, and how the experience affects your everyday life. I’ve come to really appreciate the value of well-designed travel accessories, especially when you are in a new city and constantly on the go. Design-wise, the hustle mentality that the STAPLE Pigeon represents started out as a way to speak to the culture of New York City, but over the course of my travels, I’ve come to see that it represents this same ethos in cities across the globe. With this TUMI collaboration, we are bringing that spirit full circle through the unique and elevated design details in each style of the collection.”
