TUMI Spring 2014 Travel Collection Line

The revealed items for the TUMI Spring 2014 Travel Collection were out on the balcony and only after a presentation were guests allowed out to explore everything. Naturally, the colors were in line with the tropical theme, with lots of bright splashes of color in their new Santa Monica Collection and the Alpha 2 Collection. They have also maintained some of their more staid looks in their fresh designs for their business looks which include a lot of graphite, white and black. TUMI has also expanded their TEGRA-LITE Travel line, which is tough and strong as well as incredibly light, with a couple of new colors called Viridian and Iridium.
