TUMI, the international travel, business and lifestyle accessory brand has teamed up with multi-award winning and street-savvy clothing label PUBLIC SCHOOL, giving fashion lovers and jetsetters worldwide another reason to travel in style.
PUBLIC SCHOOL, the creation of New York designers, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, have collaborated with TUMI to create a six piece collection encompassing both brand philosophies of high-quality design that brings its customers functional superiority and technical innovation. Each travel piece will prominently feature the PUBLIC SCHOOL design aesthetic, including the monochromatic color scheme of which the label is known for.
One of the up-and-coming conspirators in the new wave of young irreverent American mens/womenswear, PUBLIC SCHOOL drew inspiration and energy from their hometown of New York City, and have injected it into the collaborative collection which includes a 21" carry-on and 24" check-in wheeled bag, travel satchel, backpack, day tote and dopp kit. The wheeled pieces are crafted from TUMI's own Tegris®material in Black Graphite with a laser-cut netting overlay, creating a weave pattern effect on the exterior of the cases. The overlay of materials is based on an architectural idea of mimicking the weave of a garment and applying it to manmade material. This pattern, featured throughout the collection, is infused into the hardware and luggage tags of the day bags and accessories, as well as the 2-D effect on the bottom of the travel satchel. Nylon and leather are incorporated into the day bags and dopp kit, while the tote, described by the PUBLIC SCHOOL duo as the 'quintessential bag' was designed in leather and suede.
Growing up, both Chow and Osborne attended public school in New York City, which had a huge influence on their lives and individual style. Each piece in the collection bears a "PUBLIC SCHOOL x TUMI" embossed story patch on the interior lining as well as a rubber tassel inspired by the key chains and "strings" that hung from the designers' backpacks in high school.
The PUBLIC SCHOOL x TUMI collection will be sold exclusively starting September 2015 at TUMI collection stores, www.TUMI.com, select retailers and specialty stores globally.
